His nickname is Satan…. But Lord Sayden White is so much more. A charmer, a rake, and a man who refuses to follow convention.
And he bends to no woman.
Especially not a bluestocking who looks over her spectacles with enough derision to shrivel his nether regions. But even he has to confess that Miss Samantha Longnook is smart as hell. And when Sam comes to him with a proposition to help him launch a new business, it’s an offer he can’t refuse. Or is it just that her grey eyes have captured a part of him he thought long dead. Because the more time he spends with her, the more he has to wonder if her free spirit might just suit him perfectly.
This wild lord is just a means to an end…
Samantha has never been interested in convention. Nor does she wish to be subject to a man’s rule. Which is why she’s decided to use her brains to make her own way in the world. She’s done some research as she knows she can help Lord Sayden White develop a coal mine and make enough money to make certain their both successful for the rest of their lives. Never mind that the man sizzles with the sort of masculine mystery she’s spent her life ignoring. This is her chance at a bright and independent future.
But as danger and attraction build, Samantha begins to wonder if independence is actually the prize she’s after.
