In the deliciously erotic daydreams she wove for a lark, Elizabeth Manson Burke she'd her inhibitions and let dream lovers fulfill her deepest desires. In her real, everyday life, though, she hadn't been thoroughly, recklessly kissed since her husband had died. Selling silk lingerie and seductive perfumes in her Fantasy boutique and raising two small children kept her occupied... now if only she could quiet her insatiable yen to be swept up by savage passion in the powerful arms of a rogue! But when she was stranded on a tree branch after saving a frightened kitten, an unexpected knight arrived to rescue the damsel in distress, and Elizabeth felt giddy pleasure when Thad Randolph carried her to safety. She tried to convince herself -- and him -- that friendship was all she wanted, but Thad had a few unrequited needs of his own -- and he wasn't as safe as he appeared. Tempted beyond reason, dare one smitten hero fulfill his lady's secret dreams and capture her soul?
