She was a Lady...
The earth shook with a dull roar as the buffalo herd bore down upon them. Terrified, Verity raced into the arms of the buckskin-clad stranger. Suddenly, the tempestuous Lady Verity Talbot knew the thrill of recognition and flash-fire desire. Here, in the godforsaken reaches of Wyoming Territory, was the one man she had tried to escape from more than twenty years before. An intimate stranger who ignited the embers of memory, passion - and hate. Now he would help her find the son he never knew he had.
but he was no gentleman.
At last, she was his - the beguiling beauty for whom he planned sweet revenge. Miles Broderick, Viscount Linden, was a frontiersman now. Verity owed him her life, and she'd pay the ultimate price - marriage - before he would help her find her son. Finally he'd won, driving her from England, forcing her to begin again, here in the land of frontier justice, where she needed him as never before...
- Miles and Verity were introduced in The Inheritance
