Rachel Sommerville was soon to marry a scoundrel. Innocent and untouched, Rachel would never guess at her future husband Daniel’s past exploits. But Ronald Connor knew everything about Rachel’s betrothed. Daniel had seduced Roland’s closest friend, his sister, and spurred the events that led to her untimely demise. Roland planned to turn all of his blame and anger against Rachel and her marriage. He would turn feelings of pure hatred to acts of love, employing his every skill to charm Rachel into a sexual tool—one he could use to humiliate Daniel in his honeymoon bed. But he did not know that once this true lady began to let down her hair, Roland would be the captor of her seductive charms.
