The Mocking Marquis...
Miss Elizabeth Rossiter was finished with love forever – after a disastrous episode that had left her with a broken heart and a reputation that would be ruined should her scandalous secret be revealed. She had sought safety by fleeing her proper station in society to take a position as a companion to the daughter of a wealthy family far from London, where Elizabeth’s beauty and wit had once so brightly shone.
But now her hope of a safe haven was shattered. To her horror, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again appeared in this rural retreat.
Robert Denning, the handsome, faithless Marquis of Hetherington, had made a mockery of her dreams before – and now was working his old magic and mischief in her life once more...
