(From the author):
Born the third son of an English Duke, Kellson Berkley yearns for the one thing his money canít buy: individual acceptance. But with a scandalous past and a father whoís impossible to please, "Kells" vows to keep his mind on business, and stay away from love. That is, until he returns from abroad to be blindsided by the American beauty his flat mate has moved into the house. Drawn instantly to her intelligence and wit, it doesnít take Kells long to understand why the womanizing Bryant has coerced her into an engagement, or for him to realize heíd risk everything to make her his own.
With values as deep as her Southern heritage, itís difficult for Cydney Nash to accept a proposal from a virtual stranger. Nevertheless, when the opportunity arises to apprentice with one of Londonís most prestigious architectural agencies, she chases her dream and moves into her "fiancťís" flat, despite her reservations or the disproval of her protective father.
Determined to stand on her own, Cydney's first sign of trouble comes when itís Bryantís friend, Kells, who stirs her heart and distracts her from her true agenda of becoming an architect. Through their instantaneous friendship grows a passion too deep for either to ignore, and the consequences of fate will leave them struggling to free themselves from a web of greed and deceit that they will be lucky to escape from alive.
