The Rules of Being a Proper Lady1) Never take steps greater than six inches apart.2) Never look boldly at a gentleman.3) And never, ever, kiss a man who is not your fiance.
But beautiful, bold Viola Carlyle doesn't care about the rules. And she desperately wants to kiss the notoriously tempting Captain Jin Seton, the man who brought her kicking and fighting back to English society. Kidnapped as a child, now she longs to return to that life of freedom where she was able to live--and love--as she wished.
Having hunted Viola for two years, Jin Seton has finally found his good luck--for, by finding Viola, his oldest, deepest debt will at last be paid. And although he has vowed not to let her win his heart, this very improper lady might finally be the one who tames him.
