Dominic, The Marquess of Castlemaine had a reputation of a 'Savage' in the gossip mill. About to be betrothed to an Earl's daughter, Lady Clara, when her beguiling friend, Miss Amelia Hart, under the impression of saving her friend from a savage, dared to descend on him with all her danders up to make him refuse the match. When that didn't work, she proposed an outlandish wager.
He would have shown the chit her place, did he not find her so facinating. Making him want to throw proprieties to the wind for just one kiss of that pouty mouth ! Dominic had never wanted to lose a bet so much. And it intriguied him further still that Miss Amelia Hart was apparently keeping a secret close to her alluring bosom. Little did he know the secret was no little feminine whim gone wrong, but one courting real danger.
