A hot, steamy, erotic romance.
Beautiful, aristocratic Elizabeth Beaufort, only daughter of Lord and Lady Beaufort, had a strong sense of duty. As heiress to the family estate, and to the title, she would, of course, marry a suitable young man, produce an heir (or two), and do everything a dutiful wife should do while her husband ran the estate.
The only problem was that Elizabeth had no desire to marry, no wish to become like her mother and watch her husband have a series of affairs. She had no doubt that all men were the same, no matter how loving and faithful they might appear to be at first. She would do her duty, but she would put off marriage as long as possible.
But maybe Alex was different. His family was rich and respectable, and he fell in love with Elizabeth almost from the moment he met her. Within an impossibly short time their relationship became passionately physical and with deeper emotions than Elizabeth would have believed she could possibly feel for anyone. Still, she did not trust him, or any man. Would he simply jump into bed with the first available woman the moment she was away from him for a few weeks?
