A Misbegotten Match by Rita Boucher
Sebastian Armitage is personally acquainted with the damage caused by secrets and lies. Wanting nothing to do with the pain of his past, the rakehell had broken all ties with England. But when his elderly godmother falls ill, her companion, Amanda Westford, summons him home. Sebastian soon discovers that the prunes and prisms widow that he expected is not only young and beautiful, but clearly harboring some secrets of her own. Is it his godmother’s fortune that is allowing Mrs. Westford to live far beyond her means?
Amanda had vowed that she would never again accept desire without love. Although Sebastian’s infamous reputation had earned her scorn, it is impossible to despise this charming, handsome man who personifies temptation on two feet. Amanda knows that only a fool would be seduced by the promise of passion with the man known as the Demon Rum. Why then is she longing to play the fool?
