Lord Randolph Gresham has a promising career in the Church, and has come to London for the season to find a wife. But a feisty and dangerously attractive young woman who insists she’d never marry a clergyman keeps distracting him. This shouldn’t be a problem—they’ll just avoid each other. Then they’re forced to sing together, and the duet is a deeply sensual experience, unprecedented in either of their lives.
Verity Sinclair, daughter of the Dean of Chester Cathedral, hasn’t changed her mind about the future. But Randolph proves hard to resist, and when they finally give in to their passion, there’s only one option left: marriage.
