DescriptionBeauty and the Baron
Handsome rake turned scarred recluse, Lord Lucius Daventry returns from battle intent on forgetting the past. Yet, once home, Lucius is presented with one final mission: marry Angela Lacewood and grant his ailing grandfather's dying wish. Or at least pretend.
But the young beauty he remembers is now an exquisite woman. A woman strong enough to breech the walls he hides behind and steal his heart...
Lord Auberon Westborne has always loved Sylvie Somerville. But the disparity in their age and experience led him to keep his feelings to himself. So for years, he's waited, has been biding his time until the lady was mature enough to be his bride.
Will the masked ball held in honour of his cousin's engagement be the romantic opportunity West has been waiting for - or has he already lost Sylvie's heart to another?
