Wed to help settle his gambling debt and regain his family estate, Damian, Earl of Windermere, abandons his bride, Lady Cynthia, and heads for Persia. A year later he returns, ready to claim his wife, who’s gone from country mouse to town beauty. Meanwhile, Lady Cynthia has decided scandal is the best revenge. When Damian returns, Lady Cynthia decides to make him pay for his desertion. Yet, his scheme of seduction nearly undoes her plan, as they are caught up in a mystery and in her charitable work. She just might surrender and forgive, but can she forget? (AVON, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
