The Taste of Innocence
Copyright 2007 (ISBN 978-0-06-08486-0)
Charles has vowed to not let love cloud his thinking. With matchmakers nipping at his heels, he decides it's time to court his childhood friend Sarah as his ideal countess. But Sarah wants more than a marriage of convenience; she wants passion. She agrees to give Charles two weeks to convince her to marry him -- weeks in which they spend nights learning about the depths of passion.
As Sarah tries to persuade Charles that he really loves her, a ruthless (and anonymous) land speculator attempts to steal Sarah's property, imperiling an orphanage she's the patroness of. The scheme drives the couple apart and together again as the plot moves quickly to an exciting conclusion. Other Cynsters appear and disappear (most notably Devil) as Charles and Sarah solve the mystery and find love.
