"You are reckless, proud, spoiled and everything I dislike!"
For Lord Henry Marlow, the future Earl of Barrington, life is for living before he accepts his duty. No wager is too risky or challenge too dangerous - until a racing injury forces the Barrington heir to return home and prepare for his destiny. But the one thing Henry will not do is bow to his parents' wishes and propose to his childhood friend and neighbour, beautiful Alethea Forth. And he'll not put up with her disapproving sister, Susan, either, no matter how much he enjoys their verbal sparring...
Kind-hearted, bookish Susan Forth has always thought Henry arrogant and self-centred, and has never hidden her dislike of the rogue! But this injured, vulnerable Henry reluctantly brings out her natural compassion, and a shocking desire for the man who is expected to marry her sister! A stolen kiss leads to a forbidden passion - and for the first time in her life, Susan knows what it's like to be reckless - with a man who is finally learning to care.
But when tragedy strikes, their secret love is all that holds them together - and could tear their lives apart...
