At No. 6, Viscount Rockingham humors his sister by taking on an extra housemaid. One he does not need. But no sooner does said woman stand before him when he rejoices at sight of the lovely creature who once made all his days sweet.
But she's frightened, shaken, recalling once before when another man destroyed another whom she loved.
So she'll take safety in Charlie's house. But even as Jess warns herself not to take comfort in his arms, she's never found another who rivals his charm. Charlie has always been far above her touch, even though when they were young and promised each other undying devotion, class differences did not matter.
For Charlie, the intervening years have shown him that she's the only one who can sweeten his dreadfully bland days. As he works to protect her from a clever stalker, he vows that this time he'll ignore any rule, break any barrier...or kill any man who'd hurt her and deprive them of the happiness they both so richly deserve.
But will he succeed?
And can he ignore the dictates of the ton to marry the famous cook?
Or will she leave him for personal success...and let him live alone in want of her love?
