From The New York Times bestselling author of A Lady?s Secret, a classic Regency romance back in print and in trade for the first time.
Even if the handsome, debonair Lord Wraybourne is only marrying Jane Sandiford for her fortune?as she suspects?that does not diminish the powerful sway her betrothed seems to hold over her. The Sandiford Heiress has lived a sheltered life and is known for being stuffy, so her passionate responses to her fiancé?s attentions catch her by surprise.
As confused and mortified as she is by her own emotions, Jane is even more scandalized when the dread Whisperer, the scourge of polite Society, rasps unspeakable vileness into her ear. And she is troubled by the news that someone is assaulting young women ?of the middling class? in the streets of London. Yet she remains unaware that an adversary closer to home schemes to sabotage the relationship between Lord Wraybourne and his betrothed?
