Andrew Carrington, Earl of Bellingham, believes in being a gentleman, whether it's fishing a soggy stranger out of the Thames or assisting a fetching lady into his bed. If the stranger becomes a friend and the lady a mistress, all the better. He certainly welcomes the opportunity to help Laura Davenport, a dazzling young widow with a rebellious stepson. Her gratitude, he hopes, will take an amorous form. But from the moment he sets foot in her drawing room, he gets far more than he bargained for ...


It was a moment of desperation. On the brink of losing her stepson, Laura turned to the notorious Lord Bellingham for help. Suddenly she, a vicar's daughter, is in the precarious position of resisting his tantalizing advances. How Bell earned his wicked reputation is clear; the surprise is how much more there is to him than the gossip sheets could possibly reveal. Now every moment with this dangerously desirable man puts Laura's good name at risk-and promises pleasure unlike any she has ever known ...


“You are right,” she said. “I think I try to smother Justin, and so he pushes me away.”
Bell looked at her, but she was staring straight ahead. Then she shivered.
“Are you cold?”
“A little.”
He scooped her onto his lap and wrapped his arms around her.
“Oh,” she said with a nervous laugh.
“I’ll keep you warm.”

He liked the feel of her bottom on his lap and wished there were no layers of clothing. He imagined holding her naked in his arms. Heat traveled through his veins, and his groin tightened. He would make himself mad if he continued on like this, all desire but no satisfaction. Yet, he still wanted her, even though she’d made her objections clear. At first it had been the thrill of the chase, but she didn’t play those sorts of games. She was nothing like the sophisticated women of the ton who thought nothing of taking a lover. In Laura’s world, men and women did not enter into casual liaisons for mutual pleasure, because it was considered a sin.
“If I confess my secret, will you promise not to rebuke me?” he said.
“I think you mean to trick me.”
“Tricks are allowed,” he said. “Remember, I’m a rake.”
“Oh, do you have a book of rake tricks?”
He tapped his temple. “It’s stored in my brain box. I have a trick for every occasion.”
“Such as?”
“Luring pretty widows onto my lap.
