After her groom, Edmund, runs off with her money, Lady Olivia Shea arrives in London to confront the scoundrel, only to mistake his twin brother, Samson Carlisle, Duke of Durham, for Edmund.

Samson has been wondering what his conniving brother has been up to since he fled to France. He certainly never expects to find an outraged woman storming into his life, claiming to be his wife.

Samson agrees to help Olivia reclaim her funds and reopen her perfumery, but first they must locate his missing twin in France. Olivia is not a woman who courts scandal, but to get her revenge on Edmund, she must follow Samson, a man she finds more desirable then her husband.

Ashworth delivers a fast-paced tale filled with sexual tension and adventure as Samson and Olivia pose as husband and wife to lure his brother out of hiding. They find more then they bargained for as danger stalks them every step of the way in a story you won't easily forget. Ashworth showcases her strong storytelling talents.
