Who is Laurence Heath?
London solicitor Laurence Heath protects the secrets of the realm’s most powerful lords and ladies. But Heath is living a life of dangerous deceit, and now the mysteries of his past are threatening to destroy the only love he’s ever known...
“No, it’s wrong. It has to be wrong,” she moaned, nearly to the edge now.
“Nothing that happens between us will ever be wrong,” he said fiercely. “Do you agree to my terms?”
She tried to wiggle closer, but he held her at bay.
“You drive an overly hard bargain, sir,” she protested.
“I make no apologies for my negotiating tactics,” he said.
“And what do I get in this deal, solicitor?”
“Unspeakable pleasure far beyond what you’ve ever imagined. Are those terms agreeable to you, or shall I leave you here to find your pleasure without me?”
When her dissolute husband dies after being shot in another woman’s bed, Catherine Corvedale, Countess of Bewleton, discovers that the family’s once formidable fortune has been utterly depleted and she stands to lose everything that matters to her, including her young son. She throws herself on the mercy of the one man who can save her--her late husband’s cousin, the Marquess of Huntley.
Not only is James Cavanaugh enormously wealthy, but he holds the liens against the Corvedale family estates. Yet, as he believes that Catherine betrayed him years ago, he will help her...but only for a price. He will cancel her debts entirely if she will spend seven days and nights with him, willingly doing as he asks of her.
No choice but to concede, Catherine agrees. For one week, he will be her master and own her, body and soul. Then her debts will be forgiven, and, James hopes, his needs for her expunged. At the end of the week, both will go their separate ways. But first they'll have to make it through seven sensuous days...
