Spirited, beautiful Jocelyn Egmontfelt little better than a slave when she learned that her brother had sold her in marriage to the aging depraved Sir Rolf Caradoc. Loathsome and more than twice her age, Sir Rolf was the only person who could save the Egmonts from total financial disaster.
Left no choice but to obey her brother, Jocelyn went through with the wedding. But before the marriage could be consumed, she fled her bridal chamber and brought about a chase that injured Sir Rolf, confining him to bed.
A short reprieve from her fate was all Jocelyn could hope for--until Edward. Edward was handsome, gentle, everything that Sir Rolf wasn't. And suddenly Jocelyn new she was falling in love, hopelessly in love, with a man she could never have...her husband's own brother.
