The award-winning author of The Reunion continues her dazzling new series with a novel of one woman's fall from saint to sinner . . . Lucy Betancourt's future looks bleak. The daughter of an ailing vicar in a village with no eligible bachelors, her only hope is to find employment as a governess or companion. As she helps her childhood friend, the new Duchess of Worley, through her pregnancy, the ever-practical Lucy makes her plans. But life-in the way of the dashing Bex Brantwood-has something else in store for Lucy...

Upon meeting Bex, the duke's cousin, Lucy offers herself up to him. But Bex is no family man looking for a governess. And Lucy is not exactly mistress material. Still, the misunderstanding ends in a kiss neither can forget . . .

Bex finds the proper vicar's daughter and her most improper proposal endlessly amusing-and attractive. But, saddled with debt, he's in no position to keep a woman, much less marry one, which is what a woman like Lucy deserves. Little does he know that even with her reputation at stake, Lucy will take the biggest gamble of her life by following her heart-straight into his arms . . .
