The child is his : Jack, or rather, Lord John Redgrave knows it the instant he glimpses the blue-eyed girl who was abandoned on the steps of his gentleman's club. Her mother came to his room one dark night more than three years ago and spurned his proposal the very next day.
But when Jack visits Amaryllis Clarke to demand an explanation, he receives the shock of his life. For it wasn't proud, worldly Amaryllis with whom he spent that soul-stirring night. It was her infatuated younger sister, Laurel.
Laurel was only seventeen when she gave her innocence to Jack and paid a steep price. She might be overjoyed about her reunion with little Melody, but Laurel won't surrender to her desires again.
Jack, meanwhile, has no wish to give up the daughter he never knew he had. Nor will he part with the sensual woman who makes him feel alive with longing. He intends to use any means possible to convince Laurel to stay.
After all, all's fair in matters of seduction especially to a scoundrel in love...
