Emeline's entire life is controlled by men. She's just been won in a wager by Jeffrey, the Duke of Eton, who keeps her under lock and key. And her cruel stepfather, Simon, wants nothing more than to dominate her entire future. What she wants is a man who'll set her free . . . and Rogan Mullen, heir to the dukedom, just may be the answer to her dreams...
Rogan is more than eager to have Emeline in his care, but his urge to protect her grows into a yearning to possess her--body and soul. Surrendering completely to love, they cannot foresee that something very sinister threatens to destroy them, for Simon will stop at nothing to control his stepdaughter's fate . . . and only the most fervent passion can endure against such relentless odds . . .From Booklist:
When Rogan Mullen unexpectedly becomes the heir to the Duke of Eton, he, along with his sister Kiernan, set sail from their family's home in Barbados for London. There Rogan meets his uncle Jeffrey, the current duke, and his wife, Anna, then discovers his uncle's mistress locked away in her room in the duke's town house. Rogan spends the next few nights talking with Emeline, and gradually a tentative friendship blossoms. Rogan can't understand why Emeline refuses his offer to win her freedom, but what Rogan doesn't know is that Emeline's only hope of freeing her mother depends solely on Emeline continuing to play the part of Jeffrey's mistress. Following her debut, Veiled Promises (2005), which told the story of the romance between Rogan's parents, MacNish now gives readers another delectably intense and edgy tale of passion and peril, revenge and romance.
