Destined to go blind, a rake sets his sights on the toast of society, lighting a fire of passion that scorches the night, in this captivating novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans. Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon, has one goal: to see every exquisite thing he can before he goes blind. His greatest joy, watching a woman shuddering in the throes of passion, will be gone. But before the darkness descends, he is determined to seduce a magnificent widow, Lady Penelope Fisherton. Unfortunately, his rakish reputation has preceded him; Lady Penelope spurns his advances. Being a man who relishes a challenge, however, her reluctance adds only luster to his desire for the last beautiful sight he'll ever see. Considered the belle of London society, Lady Penelope was married to a scoundrel who cared for no one but himself. Now that she's free, she wants nothing to do with love, passion, or desire-emotions that abandoned her with a cruel husband. So why does her body react when Stephen smiles? As much as she'd like to avoid the rogue, her brother-in-law wants her fortune, and he'll kill to get it. Stephen is willing to help, but he'll take only one thing in return: Her. In his bed.
