ValentineBook - 1995
A quirk of fate has made Sylvester Gilbraith the heir of his sworn enemy, the earl of Stoneridge. But there's a catch: to claim his inheritance, he has to marry one of the earl's four granddaughters. The magnetically hansome nobleman has no choice but to comply with the terms of the will, yet when he descends on Stoneridge Manor prepared to charm his way into a fortune, he finds that the lady who intrigues him most has not intention of becoming his bride. Maddeningly beautiful and utterly imposible, Theodora Belmont refuses to admit to the chemistry between them, even when she's passionately locked in his embrace. But soon the day will come when the raven-haired vixen will give anything to Sylvester's bride--and risk everything to defend his honor...and his life.
