Jason Blackwood has enjoyed leading a life of debauchery and licentiousness, exemplified by his title and wealth. Although considered quite the catch, it would be in each debutantes' best interests to give Lord Blackwood a very wide berth, indeed. Nicola Eversley had been best friends with Blanche Blackwood, Jason's youngest sister, since they were both children. For as long as she could recall she had always harboured the deepest yearning for Blanche's darkly handsome brother who had always treated her with sincere kindness and chivalry. Her desires a secret, she had been immune to the gossip and speculation regarding Lord Blackwood's licentious exploits, and when fate decides to entwine their paths one unexpected stormy night, Nicola has to decide whether to forgive these flaws or allow them to ruin her perceptions of him for good. Set in Regency England, this is a tale of humour, friendship and, most importantly, love.
