Description
"In an era when ladies were demure and men courtly, one priceless treasure set England ablaze and incited unimaginable scandal and passion--the Hope Diamond." Heir to an impressive title and fortune, Lord William Townshend, Earl of Harclay, is among the most disreputable rakes in England. Desperately bored by dull heiresses and tedious soirees, he seeks new excitement--with a dangerous scheme to steal the world's most legendary gemstone from its owner, Thomas Hope. To his surprise, however, it's not the robbery that sets his blood burning but the alluring lady from whom he pilfers the gem. A string of bad luck has left the fate of Lady Violet Rutledge's estate entirely in Hope's scheming hands. So when his prized jewel disappears from around her neck, she has no choice but to track down the villain responsible for the theft. Only Harclay has his sights set on taking more from her than the necklace--and she's tempted to surrender anything he desires... Now, caught in a thrilling game of secrecy and seduction, Violet must find a way to protect her fortune--and her heart--before she loses both forever...
