Description
A new enchanting historical romance from a superb storyteller ("Booklist") and "New York Times" bestselling author featuring a handsome, brooding Earl who finds himself drawn to his prim and proper housekeeper.""
Hell hath no fury like a bridegroom scorned in this scintillating romantic adventure from "New York Times "and "USA Today "bestselling author TERESA MEDEIROS
Maximillian Burke prides himself on being the man every mother wants her daughter to marry, but after his scoundrel brother steals his bride, Max decides there's more satisfaction in being a rogue than a gentleman. He flees London for lonely Cadgwyck Manor, and though the tumbledown estate comes complete with a ghost, it's Max's no-nonsense housekeeper who haunts his dreams.
Prim and proper Anne Spencer could do without a new master, especially one as gorgeous and temperamental as the Earl of Dravenwood. Even as she schemes to be rid of him, she is irresistibly drawn into his muscular embrace. But when Max vows to solve the mystery of the White Lady of Cadgwyck, he risks both their hearts and tempts them to surrender to a pleasure as delicious as it is dangerous.

"The Temptation of Your Touch captivates with intriguing escapades and charming characters...Ms. Medeiros always perfectly balances her emotional romances with unexpected hilarity and affecting heartaches.

-Romance Junkies Reviews


“A pair of deeply wounded protagonists who must learn to forgive themselves, a charming group of secondary characters, and a complex, well-crafted plot result in a tale that is beautifully linked to the author’s The Pleasure of Your Kiss. With deliciously Gothic touches, this novel is another winner for the talented Medeiros.”
