The first novel in USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans’s sexy new Disgraced Lords series

A pair of damaged souls; a passionate affair

Desperate to escape her abusive past, Sarah Cooper disguises herself as a governess in the employ of Christian Trent, Earl of Markham - the man who, long ago, she fantasized about marrying. Despite the battle scars that mar his face, Sarah finds being near Christian rekindles her infatuation.

A governess, however, has no business in the arms of an earl, and as she accompanies Christian on his voyage home, Sarah must resist her intense desires - or risk revealing her dangerous secrets...


This tale is poignant, heartwarming and readers may be reaching for the Kleenex once or twice before the breathtaking ending
