In this “vibrant, sensitive, and unusual” Regency romance, a woman must tame a beast of a man while he seeks to bring out her most primitive desires (Romantic Times).
When prim English governess Chelsea Wickersham agrees to tutor the long-lost heir of the mysterious Cane estate, she expects to find a young boy eager to learn. But she is shocked to discover that her new pupil is not a boy—in fact, he barely seems to be a man. Wild and uncivilized, Sullivan Cane was only recently found on a remote island and brought back to take his rightful place within the family.
But Cane is no simple beast. After years of self-exile away from his scheming relations, he was forced to return to his family estate in Scotland. Now, he continues to play the role of wild man to outwit his backstabbing brethren. Even as he grows exhausted of his brutish pretense, he takes pleasure in watching the walls of Chelsea’s façade crumble. But while passion grows between teacher and student, a sinister enemy lurks in their midst, threating their love and their lives . . .
This alluring novel of deception and desire will “make you laugh, cry and leave you sleepless while you try to read just one more page” (Affaire de Coeur).
