penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet
White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one
thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising
position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord…
taking Max’s heart with her.
Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited
from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed,
but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the
newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating
man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to
give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle
He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future.
But beneath all the loathing, simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can
ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.
