A lady in disguise
Betrayal is the one sin Daniel will not tolerate, so when sweet Madeline Wright the governess reveals herself to be Lady Madeline Deville sister of an Earl, he vows to never cross her path again. However, he soon learns what led to Maddie’s deception, and when he saves her from a knife-wielding man, Daniel realizes he can no longer deny what is in his heart. Can he keep her safe, because losing her is not something he can contemplate?
One night of forbidden temptation
Living with four protective brothers and society's restrictions had forced Maddie to sneak out of the house one night. Just one night of freedom would be enough she’d believed, and that night had given her Daniel.
When her lie was revealed as eventually they always are, he keeps her secret but she sees the anger smoldering in his eyes. When he is forced to protect her Maddie vows to make him look at her like he did that night once more, but to do that she must live long enough to ensnare his heart.
