DESPERATE. DESTITUTE. DETERMINED.
In a wild last–ditch attempt to save the fortunes of her family after they've been left penniless by her father's gambling, Laura Townsend does what any young woman at the end of their rope would.
She sneaks into the home of Philip Rathbone, the moneylender intending to retrieve the business assets her father lost.
Laura had expected to find him hunched over a desk counting coins – interrupting him in the bath stark naked was not part of her plan.
After she surprises him with a pistol and a threat, Philip is intrigued enough by the tenacious woman to astound her back – with a proposition of marriage and a chance to reclaim her future. Desperate as she is though, Laura refuses to settle for anything less than true passion, the spark of which Philip may just have ignited.
“Lee takes readers on a sexy romp through London's invisible world or tradesmen and their daily struggles as Laura takes drastic measures to save her business … with traditional will–they–won't–they angst, Lee's characters finally earn their HEA.” – Anne Black, RT Book Reviews
