He betrayed me.
I trusted him, like a fool, and he stabbed me in the back.
He hurt me. Lied to me. And now he ruined me.
But I'm not the kind of woman who stays on the ground.
I'm back on my feet. I'm back from the dead. And I'm stronger than before.
It'll take something a lot stronger to bury a woman like me.
My father has made his decision and he won't change it.
I'm about to lose the love of my life.
How can I ever go on without him? I'll never love anyone else the way I love him.
Can this really be the end?

Why is Lady Sophia looking for a lover?Andcould she seduce the most marriageable man in London?
Lady Sophia Sydney would do anything to ensnare the unattainable Sir Ross Cannon. Her goal—to ruin his reputation and cause a scandal that would be the talk of all London. So she insinuates herself into his life by gaining his trust and living in his house.
Every morning, her lush presence tempts him beyond all reason...the way she bends over the table to serve him the meals she has prepared...the way her hands oh, so gently—yet sensuously—brush against him. Every night, she promises with her eyes—and her body— that the hours before dawn could be spent in unbridled passion instead of restless sleep—if only he'd let her share his bed.
She knows he is falling more in love with her each day. But she never counted on falling in love with him. And she never dreamed he might very respectably ask for her hand in marriage...
