Lionel Morgan, Earl of Denbigh, had been betrayed at the altar by another woman and vowed that no female would ensnare him again. Then Charlotte Edgerton burst into his life.

It wasn't until he nearly lost her that he realized the truth: She'd somehow reversed their roles and become the captor of his heart.
