Orphaned by a tragic accident, sixteen-year-old Amalie Courtland set sail from America for a new life in England with her godmother. What she didn't expect to find was Lady Winford's handsome rogue of a grandson, Robert Holt Braxton, Earl of Deverell. Immediately smitten by Holt's careless good looks and smoldering blue eyes, Amalie's na#65533;ve young heart fell in love. Little did she know Holt was trying to resist his own temptation -- by having his grandmother take Amalie away. Years later, Holt is shocked by the change in the one-provincial Amalie. The tawny-skinned enchantress with raven hair and lustrous green eyes has become a cool, composed beauty. Soon Amalie is lost in the arms of this experienced rake as they succumb to the tempestuous passion of their hearts and bodies. Then, when Holt learns of her brother's plot to destroy his business holdings, he suspects Amalie has betrayed him and he vows revenge. But not even he can deny the all-consuming storm of desire that threatens to drown them both...

This book gives women a bad name... I didn't like how the male main character treated the female main character throughout the book. He treats her like she is a piece of trash and not a human being. Overall I found this book horrible... I am usually really good about finishing a book even if I didn't like it... except for this one... I only made it to Chapter 21 and finally couldn't take it anymore. I don't recommend this book to anyone. ( )
