Duke of... Trilogy #2 (Same series: Duke of Sin, Duke of Scandal, The Duke's Indiscretion )
He stands apart from other men -- a tall, dark breathtaking figure of seductive masculinity. With a smile, he can topple the defenses of even the most proper maiden. And with a single whisper, she will be his.
A wife in name only, Lady Ollivia Shea has returned to London in a rage, determined to confront her new husband, who vanished months ago with her inheritance on their wedding night. Yet this hauntingly familiar man who stands before her--- this face and form she adores--- is not her deceiving Edmund but the blackguard's twin brother, Samson Carlisle, Duke of Durham. Samson knows of his sibling's penchant for perfidy and he graciously offers to help the exquisite Olivia locate the missing rogue and recover her stolen fortune.
But Olivia fears that accompanying this mysterious, dangerous, eminently desirable man would be courting the most devastating sort of scandal--- especially since it is now Samson's arms she aches to feel surrounding her, and his kiss she longs to taste...
