An Accidental Affair

(The fourth book in the Distinguished Rogues series)
A novel by

London's ballrooms and bedrooms thrive on scandal and decadent pleasure and the summer of 1814 will be no exception for the fourth Distinguished Rogue in Heather Boyd's regency romances series.

Widowed beauty, Arabella Lawson, Lady Farnsworth, knows the value of independence after being trapped in a marriage that left her unfulfilled. Although she longs for a lover at last, she's expected to chaperone her flirtatious niece during her first season. However, given the way the girl keeps disappearing every chance she gets, there is little hope of a good or speedy result. While searching for her charge yet again, she blunders into one of Lord Rothwell's scandalous assignations. This time it's Arabella's turn to be on the receiving end of his hungry kisses, and she's far from prepared to make the most of the opportunity.

Gossip may paint Merrick Bishop, the Earl of Rothwell, as a notorious scoundrel when it comes to women, but this season his intentions are honorable. Duty bound to marry, he's determined to discreetly court an open-minded bride and prove the gossip mongers wrong by being on his very best behavior... until in his frustration, he mistakenly kisses the wrong lady and discovers that everything about the encounter feels so very right. Merrick never once believed he had a chance with shy Arabella, and when the unthinkable happens, she turns to him not for an affair or hopes of marriage but for his friendship and protection from her own family.

Can a rogue with a reputation for breaking hearts convince a widow who only hopes for an affair that their feelings are not only the stirrings of desire but the beginnings of the deepest and truest love?
