Jareth Northrop's reputation as a rake and seducer drove him out of London three years ago. Now that his money has run out, he is forced to call upon his older brother Justinian for aid. But Justinian is insisting Jareth receive forgiveness from a list of twelve women he's wronged in the past. Eloise Watkin gave in to a moment of passion when she was no more than a schoolgirl. Five years later that one mistake still haunts her, as she can't forget the man responsible. Through sheer determination, Eloise has managed to overcome her indiscretion and is on the verge of accepting a proposal from a very worthy suitor when her eye catches Jareth's from across the ballroom. Can he convince her to trust him, and give their love another chance? Regina Scott tells a wonderful story of love overcoming obstacles and hearts learning to trust again in UTTERLY DEVOTED (4). (Aug., 244 pp., $4.99)
