After a lengthy journey, Seraphina Treadwell appears at the doorstep of Carden Reeves with his three young nieces in tow determined to ensure their uncle will properly care for her charges. However, judging by the man's rakish smile and dancing eyes--now alight with the fire of a new conquest--that day seems far off indeed.
A make who can make love and walk away with equal amounts of passion, Carden plays the seduction game to win. But beneath a rogue's clothing beats the heart of a man who has never been truly and properly seduced by a woman, let alone a woman who lives by her own rules and who could make him believe in love. Until now...
While pride will not allow Seraphina to surrender to a man who has never wanted anything beyond a single night, her heart will not be denied the sweet promise of love...

Author Notes

Leslie Lafoy grew up loving to read and living to write. (This was a significant factor in her becoming the unofficial poster child of over-education. In the Liberal Arts no less.) After teaching high school history for many years, she focused her creative energies on her life-long dream of writing full time. When not made completely oblivious to reality by her current work in progress, she dabbles in every handicraft known to womankind and, twice a week and every other weekend, dons her cape to be Hockey Team Mom.

Booklist Review

In the rough town of Belize City, Seraphina is barely surviving while taking care of three orphan children. Her treacherous husband and the children's parents disappeared, leaving Seraphina destitute, but salvation arrives in the form of a letter and two hundred-pound notes from the children's Uncle Carden in London. She and the children arrive on Carden's doorstep, and he reluctantly takes them in. Carden is a notorious rake and womanizer, so the news that his brother is probably dead, making him the earl, puts a serious crimp on his lifestyle, not to mention the three children and their very desirable guardian. Seraphina wants nothing to do with men after her disastrous marriage, but something about Carden stirs her desire. Meanwhile, she is surprised to learn that the botanical work she and her father did in Belize is so admired in Victorian England their book has become a bestseller. As Seraphina and Carden attempt to seduce each other, LaFoy's remarkable characters utterly seduce the reader. --Patty Engelmann Copyright 2003 Booklist
