From the Publisher:
In her most captivating novel to date, Mary Balogh, the premier writer of Regency romance, invites you into a world of scandal and seduction, of glittering high society and intrigue, as an arrogant duke does the unthinkable — he falls in love with his mistress....
She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the melee, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in — were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind....
Jane tried to pretend it was strictly business, an arrangement she was forced to accept in order to conceal a dangerous secret. Surely there was nothing more perilous than being the lover of such a man. Yet as she got past his devilish facade and saw the noble heart within, she knew the greatest jeopardy of all, a passion that drove her to risk everything on one perfect month with the improper gentleman who thought love was for fools.
Mary Balogh is the author of numerous best-selling historical romances and is most widely known for her Regency romances, which deal with such themes as betrayal, marriage, and true love. After studying in Wales, Balogh decided she wanted to travel and to find work as a teacher, a profession much in demand in the late '60s. After applying to nine different countries around the world, she ended up in Saskatchewan, Canada. Having accepted a two-year contract to teach English, Balogh met her husband, a farmer, and settled down in Canada. It was there, in 1983, that she first picked up a pen and began to write romances. But when her first few attempts were rejected, Balogh adjusted her style and tried to write a Regency, immediately falling in love with the genre. With this decision, her career as a popular romance writer began.
