Fate has brought them together -again.

At one time, Jemma had meant the world to Dane Pendleton, but then she betrayed their young love by marrying another for his title and fortune.

Now Time has turned the tables. Dane is wealthy, respected, knighted and the widowed Jemma has nothing but her pride.

His honor for hers . . .

Dane’s name is on the lips of every beauty in London. They whisper he learned “tricks” while he was in the Orient. But has he forgotten Jemma, now Lady Mosby, and what they had once meant to each other? And will he accept her devil’s bargain?

In every woman’s life, there is that one love who slipped away. The man who makes her wonder “what if?”

But is this a momentary madness or a chance to rekindle a love that could last a lifetime?

Excerpt:

Meanwhile, Jemma’s life had not been what she’d anticipated. Her husband, the one she’d chosen over Dane, had been titled and wealthy and a fool. He’d had a poor head for wisdom and business. In this day and age, with war in Europe, a man couldn’t afford to throw his money out a window.

The rumor about Town was that, at his death, Lord Mosby had left his heirs little more than a pittance and his widow destitute.

Dane reached for the decanter, then stopped.

Damn Jemma . . . and damn her stupid, drunken brother. He hadn’t let her break him then, and he would not do so now—

A soft rap sounded on the door.

For a second, Dane tho ught he’d imagined the so und.

The knock sounded again.

“What is it?” he said, his voice harsh. He wanted to be alone. He needed to be alone. Tomorrow, he was going to run Whiting through, and then . . . what? The word haunted him.

  1. What a tease this excerpt was! Who’s at the door? Jemma? Or? Doggone it, I’m gonna have to wait to be surprised, aren’t I. Sigh. Honestly, though, thanks for the post. A teaser just gets my appetite whetted a bit more. 🙂 jdh2690@gmail.com
