Forced to live with her ene­my! Hollie Finch is hor­ri­fied when the for­bid­ding Earl of Everingham, Lord Charles Stirling, places her under house arrest in his manor. Well, he may sus­pect her of sedi­tion, but to her it’s just free­dom of the press — and she’s deter­mined to car­ry on her work right under his arro­gant nose! Yet that turns out to be unex­pect­ed­ly dif­fi­cult, with his all-too-dis­turb­ing pres­ence dis­rupt­ing her days… and mem­o­ries of his pas­sion-dark eyes trou­bling her nights.



Lord Charles Stirling mere­ly planned to keep a close eye on the love­ly rab­ble-rouser — and he’s appalled when her intox­i­cat­ing scent and lithe curves make him burn to have her in his bed. Even worse, her gen­er­ous heart and joy­ous laugh­ter start him think­ing about keep­ing her with him for­ev­er. But the pow­er­ful earl has a secret that could destroy him, so he dares not let Hollie into his life. Can the pride and decep­tion sep­a­rat­ing them ever be over­come… by the mir­a­cle of love?

… I couldn’t put it down… The sex­u­al ten­sion between them was so well depict­ed and when they final­ly made love, WOW! Ms. Needham writes for a mature read­er (not a teenag­er), and I thank her for that.… This is the 4th book I have read of hers and I give them all 5 stars. I love the sen­su­al­i­ty in her sto­ries. I am a col­lege grad­u­ate, career woman, and in my late fifties. You can trust me when I rec­om­mend an author. Needham is excel­lent! — By A Customer on April 19, 2002
