SEDUCING AN ANGEL
Each and every Balogh book is a joyous gift to readers. No one is the same as any other, but like this fourth book in the Huxtable quintet, each is
uplifting, compelling and unforgettable. Her originality, powerfully emotional plots and character development make this a page-turner and will keep Balogh on your keeper shelf.
Cassandra Belmont, Lady Paget, is thrown out of her home virtually destitute upon her husband's death.
The beautiful widow attempts to seduce Stephen Huxtable, Earl of Merton, at
a London ball in hopes of his becoming her protector.
Although attracted to Cassandra, Stephen recognizes this as a desperate act. He sees her fear and distaste of
men in her every move. He takes her as his mistress but minimizes their sexual involvement and treats her as a treasured friend. Even when he falls deeply in love with her, he slowly woos her, managing to revive her desire for life and passion. Eventually she surrenders herself to Stephen's all-encompassing love.
