“Lady Hawksworth, your husband is not dead.” With those words, Lara’s life turned upside down. Hunter, Earl of Hawksworth, had been lost at sea. Or so she’d been told. Their unhappy marriage – with its cold caresses and passionless kisses – was over. But now a powerful, virile man stood before her, telling secrets only a husband could know, and vowing she would once again be his wife in every way. While Lara couldn’t deny that this man with the smoldering dark eyes resembled Hunter, he was attentive and loving in ways he never was before. Soon she desperately wanted to believe, with every beat of her heart, that this stranger was truly her husband. But had this rake reformed – or was Lara being seduced by a cunning stranger?

One year after Lara thought her husband was dead in a shipwreck, he returns home to her. But is he really her husband or an impostor? Although the evidence is inconclusive, this new Hunter Hawksworth is very different, and much improved, from the first. Not given to introspection, Lara is willing to put her doubts aside for this man who embodies all her dreams, and desires her with a ruthless and seductive persistence that overcomes her considerable sexual fears. Inspired by the French movie The Return of Martin Guerre and the original court case on which it's based, this late-Regency historical romance, notable for its compelling sexual tension, spare but evocative dialogue, and deftly drawn characters, asks the intriguing question "Can you ever really know the man you love?" One of the superlative romances of the season. --Ellen EdwardsFrom the Back Cover:
