The wallflower turns wild…
Lady Violet Everstone is quiet, obedient, and not the type of woman Tristan Buchanan usually pursues. If she wasn’t so shy, she might find the courage to grant the viscount a smile. If she were brave, she would try mending his broken heart. She’s loved him since childhood, but wallflowers like herself are rarely noticed. Rather than risk certain heartache, she must abandon the foolish dream of becoming his wife.
Tristan, Viscount Longleigh, never expected his sister’s dearest friend to drop into his lap like a wayward kitten. While he’s never noticed Violet before, he certainly cannot ignore her now. Provoking this lush redhead until the hidden fires in her eyes roar to untamed life quickly becomes his greatest desire. Although she’s promised to another man, Tristan vows to show Violet she can claim her own destiny.
And that kiss they share?
It tempts fate and leaves Tristan with a decision to make.
Will he remain the carefree bachelor while his wild Violet is crushed by responsibility and duty?
Or become her knight in shining armor and sacrifice his heart for love?
