Lord Dante Muir:
With a disarming wit, and dark, devilish good loioks, he was a most eligible-and determined-bachelor. But fate had wedged him between an invalid and a drunkard for brothers, and it fell to the reluctant Dante to sacrifie his rakes's existence for the futuire of their magnificent home, Cliff Walk Manor. Dante agreed to a match that would snare the generous Trowbridge dowry, but he hadn't considered the passionate young woman he would receive in the bargain....
Sarah Jane Trowbridge:
With her first tentative steps into womanhood, she was swept from under the thumb of her formidable grandmother- only to find herself wrapped hopelessly around the finger of her brooding new husband. Claiming her place as lady of Cliff Walk Manor-where shattered dreams and devious schemes held sway- and capturing the heart of a man torn between doubt and desire would be no easy tasks. Sarah and Dante would discover that flying in the face of their arranged fate would hurtle them headlong into the destiny they expected least... and yearned for most.
Lord Dante Muir was a most charming, handsome, determined bachelor, until fate stepped in and made him sacrifice himself to marry for money,in order to secure the future of his magnificent home. He had no idea that the woman that looked to be as timid as a mouse, was really a passionate woman, who would bloom with their marriage.
a wonderful book and story- great characters.
