Here is a short summary:
Sophie Duncan returned to London with one goal in mind ... to confront the man who carelessly broke her young sister's heart. However, she is surprised when the spectacle she creates in the confrontation does seemingly little harm to the notorious Lord John Hartley, "Hartley the Heartless", but instead brings her to the attention of many of the eligible gentlemen in London. Now all eyes are on her, including William Hartley, John's brother and heir as the Duke of Devonshire. With many men suddenly vying for her attention, Sophie must choose between them, but will she give into her surprising attraction to John Hartley or to a man she least expects? John Hartley enjoyed his position as the second in line to a dukedom. His title and wealth allowed him to pursue many of life's pleasures; however, he did not like to have his past indiscretions brought to the ton's attention by a bold young woman new to the Season. Despite her accusations, the lady, Sophie Duncan, completely captured his attention. Her beauty and actions also garnered the notice of most of the men in the ton, including that of his older brother, William. Will John decide to let go of his pride and his carefree ways in order to win Sophie's affection, and if so, will he pursue her out of his need to compete with his brother, to quench the desire that has become his obsession, or for another reason entirely?
