HE WAS A LORD SHE WOULD HATE TO LOVE . .

The Duke of Severn was a gentleman who had never known denial or defeat. His slightest wishes were others' commands, and society's most ravishing belles were his for the asking. It was unthinkable that Juliet could long resist his advances or refuse his proposal.
But when this iron-willed lord attempted to storm the defenses of this unyielding lady, the unthinkable did happen -- first to him . . . and then to her . . .
