Lady Amelia Chastain knew most men weren’t to be trusted. And Lord Simon Davenport was at the top of that list. Handsome, rich, and a rake, the man was too arrogant, too confident for his own good. What made it even worse was that he stood between her and her dreams.
Confronting him was both worrisome and challenging. But at the same time, exciting and fulfilling.
Lord Simon Davenport never intended to marry, but it was becoming evident that a partner, a hostess, a mother to his children, might be beneficial. But if he was to marry then it wouldn’t be an empty-headed ninny. No, it would be someone like Amelia Chastain--intelligent, beautiful, and stubborn. Someone who could help him navigate the social structure of London. Unfortunately, the woman despised him.
Really, there was but one solution: seduce her. Make her fall in love with him. Only then could he ensure he controlled the levers of power within the marriage. Of course, he must do so without losing his own heart.
