Twin brothers are interested in the same lady. She weds the heir, the Earl of Greyling. When tragedy strikes, Edward Alcott honors his dying brother's request to pretend to be Greyling until his countess delivers their child. He vows, though, to not take advantage of the situation. With three miscarriages, he, too, wants his brother's child to be born healthy. However, long tamped down desires come to life. And the countess finds herself falling more deeply in love with her husband. To complicate this romance, Edward's previous behavior to the countess convinced the ton and her husband that he could not stand her. This steamy romance is the second in the Hellions of Haversham. The secondary characters beg to have their story told.
