Summary

In this sexy gay romance, a dancer decides to confront his new boss and one-time childhood nemesis, only to discover his anger has turned to desire. 
 
As the disinherited son of New York royalty, Hop Lovette is used to his father’s neglect. But he never got used to the mistreatment his suffered at the hands of his father’s employee, Rafe Marson. So when the troupe he dances with lands a contract at Rafe’s nightclub, he knows it’s only a matter of time before he will face his childhood rival once again. 
 
Rafe Marson owes Hop’s father everything, and he’s on a mission to repay his debts. Nothing will stand in his way—not even a wild, beautiful, maddening blast from his past. Not even when Hop stirs up feelings better left dormant. Not even when Hop begs to be seduced. 
 
Then opportunity knocks, and this time it’s Hop stepping up to help Rafe. But working together without being together is harder than they thought. And when everything they’ve been working toward is threatened, Rafe will need to prove that true love is one in a million.

    Demure Prunella Broughton has long felt responsible for her lovely younger sister Nanette – since their mother ran away with a lover and then, not long later, their beloved father had died. As an heiress and a debutante, Nanette is already attracting much male attention.
     
    But it’s about Pascoe Lowestoft  that Prunella is most concerned. Spoilt, dandified, vain and “far too good-looking for any young girl’s peace of mind”, this penniless fortune hunter he has declared himself in love with Nanette!
     
    To make matters worse, the new 6thEarl of Winslow arrives unexpectedly to take his place at his long-neglected Baronial Hall – a gentleman of whom Prunella deeply disapproves for his wild, raffish reputation, and the fact that he is Pascoe’s uncle.
     
    Her argument that  the love between Nanette and Pascoe must be stopped gets short shrift from the Earl. Indeed, he argues that love, such as that which led her mother to leave, cannot be denied. Prudish Prunella refuses to believe that such an unruly, uncontrollable love can exist – until the prodigal Earl’s stolen kiss changes everything forever.
