Award-winning author Jillian Hunter both amuses and delights with another irresistible tale of scandal and seduction.
When Chloe Boscastle is caught indiscreetly kissing a man in a park, her brother Grayson-the protective patriarch of the Boscastle family-sends her off to a country manor to stay until the scandal in town subsides.
Soon after Chloe's banishment begins, she is shocked to learn that her neighbor Dominic Breckland, the devilish Viscount Stratfield, has been killed in his bed. But she is even more stunned to discover the dangerously handsome “victim” taking refuge in her lingerie closet one night. By some miracle Dominic has survived his attack-and wishes the world to believe him dead. Can the alluring Lady Chloe keep his secret? Dominic uses all his masculine charm to persuade her as they work together to unmask his enemy. Of course, being caught sheltering a seductive scoundrel could further mar Chloe's already tarnished reputation. But, really, what's a little scandal to a lady in love?
Lady Chloe Bocastle's first meeting with Dominic Breckland, Viscount Stratfield, does not occur under the most genteel of conditions; after all, what does a lady say to a man supposedly murdered three weeks ago when he appears in her bedroom very much alive, but bleeding all over her best lingerie? Fortunately, Lady Chloe, herself tainted by scandal, is capable of handling the situation, although she certainly doesn't plan on losing her heart to the rakish viscount....This work of romantic suspense, set in the Regency era, is the middle volume of the Boscastle trilogy.
