Description from amazon.com:
Darius Carsington is a spectacularly handsome rake with a rare intelligence and no heart, a man who divides his time between bedding loose-moraled women and writing scholarly papers. He finds society’s “perfect darlings” exceedingly boring. But there’s something intriguing, and not quite perfect, about faultless Lady Charlotte Hayward. He senses a crack under her polished surface, and finding it is a challenge he can’t resist.
Lady Charlotte is so beautiful, charming, and gracious that no one has noticed what an expert she is at Not Getting Married. Early on, she learned a painful lesson about trust . . . and temptation. In the years since, she’s devoted her life to being all she ought to be—and she’s not about to let a man like Carsington entice her to do everything she shouldn’t.
A Splendid Collision
But the rules of attraction can easily overpower the rules of manners and morals, and sometimes even the best-behaved girl has to follow her instincts, even if it means risking it all.
This is a series that does not need to be read in order. This offering is luscious, and full of romance and a shameful secret that could ruin lives. It is wonderful how a consumate wordsmith like Loretta Chase can make us sigh with the romance and clutch with the fear of our heroine’s secret coming out. All HR fans will love this offering in the series. I can’t wait to read more. I highly recommend this author for her wonderful Historical Romances.
