He must be wealthy, well-born and want her more than he wants any other woman.
Those are the conditions that must be met by the man Cassandra Belmont chooses for her lover.
Marriage is out of the question for the scandalous widow who must now barter her beauty in order to survive.
With seduction in mind, she sets her sights on Stephen Huxtable, the irresistibly attractive Earl of Merton and London's most eligible bachelor.

There is only one caveat: this relationship must be on his terms.
But a single night of passion alters all the rules. Cassandra is now in danger of losing the one thing she vowed never to give. And Stephen, who wants Cassandra more than he has ever wanted any woman, won't rest until she has surrendered everything - not as his mistress - but as his lover and wife...

Review by wyvernfriend
I liked this historical romance. Cassandra Belmont, Lady Paget is down on her luck. Her husband died under suspicious circumstances and because he beat her, she was the prime suspect. Her step-son gave her a choice, he would let her go free or she could argue for her portion of the will and he would have her accused of murder, destitute, she fixes on her only choice, find a wealthy sponsor and support herself. Her marriage not having been happy she shies away from the thoughts of another one. However Stephen Huxtable, Earl Merton is determined that he wants more from her than just a mistress. She's determined that she should have independence...I liked it, things were fixed up quite well but it was enjoyable, light but written deftly.
