One reckless man . . . One passionate woman.

Enter the world of Mary Balogh the glittering ballrooms and vast country estates of Regency-era England, where romance, with all its mystery, magic, and surprises, comes vibrantly alive.
It was a perfect morning in May . . .
Neville Wyatt, Earl of Kilbourne, awaited his bride at the altar when a ragged beggar woman raced down the aisle instead. The cream of the "ton" saw him stare, shocked, then declare that "this" was his "wife " One night of passion was all he remembered as he beheld Lily, the woman he'd wed, loved, and lost on the battlefield in Portugal. Now he said he'd honor his commitment to her regardless of the gulf that lay between them.
Then Lily spoke her mind . . .
She said she wanted only to start a new life wanted only a husband who truly loved her. She had to leave him to learn how to meet his world on her terms. So Lily agreed to earn her keep as his aunt's companion and study the genteel arts. Soon she was the toast of the "ton, " every inch a countess fit for the earl, who vowed to prove to his remarkable wife that what he felt for her was far more than desire, that what he wanted from her was much more than . . . One Night for Love.
