Name and title: Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton. Affiliation: London's elite Society of Decadent Dukes. Family history: Scandalous. Personality traits: Dark and brooding, with a thirst for revenge. Ideal romantic partner: A woman of means, with beauty and brains, willing to live with reckless abandon. Desire: Clara Cheswick, gorgeous daughter of his family's sworn enemy.
FAINT OF HEART NEED NOT APPLY
Clara may be the woman Adam wants, but there's one problem: she's far more interested in publishing her women's journal than getting marriedespecially to a man said to be dead-set on vengeance. Though, with her nose for a story, Clara wonders if his desire for justice is sincerealong with his incredibly unnerving intention to be her husband. If her weak-kneed response to his kiss is any indication, falling for Adam clearly comes with a cost. But who knew courting danger could be such exhilarating fun?
