The lecture went on at some length, in the pithily devastating style that had made Lord Hargate one of the most feared men in Parliament. Reason told Darius the speech was an illogical diatribe. All the same, it stung, as he knew it was intended to do. However, the rational man did not let emotion rule his actions, even under extreme provocation.
Not Quite A Lady
If refusing to let his emotions rule him was Darius's great crime, so be it. He had learned long ago that logic and a cool detachment were powerful weapons.

Darius chooses the latter, making him neighbors with Lady Charlotte Hayward, a beautiful woman who's vowed never to marry, and the young pair's clumsy, comical first meeting does nothing to diminish the immediate chemistry between them. Behind her vow, though, Charlotte hides a shameful year-old secret that she's loathe to reveal—and which a marriage would surely uncover—but nonetheless finds herself falling hard for Darius.
Meanwhile, Darius is struggling to maintain his longstanding belief that there's no such thing as love.

Chase knows what her fans want—strong characters, a swift pace and plenty of heated encounters—and once again she delivers, with considerable wit.
