In this fun and passion-filled Regency, Grant Benton, future Earl of Crowle, accidentally burns down his family’s barn. His already-impoverished family must sell their land, and Grant, although despondent, accepts his bleak future. When he gets the chance to earn back his land by running a mill, Grant takes charge of the business with ruthless efficiency but keeps his identity secret. Then he meets Irene Knopp, a beautiful garment purchaser, and his long-quiet libido roars back to life. As the two begin a passionate affair, Irene offers Grant a different perspective on life, suggesting that work can be fulfilling and rewarding—a notion Grant finds difficult to accept. When they discover that Irene’s life may be in danger, Grant and Irene realize just how deep their feelings have become. Readers will savor the numerous red-hot love scenes as Grant finds his way to maturity and love. Agent: Pamela Harty, Knight Agency. (Aug.)
