Lady Mary has been waiting years for this opportunity. Now that her sister has thrown off her spinster ways and become betrothed, it's finally Mary's chance for true love. She knows exactly who she wants -- and it's not someone as wild, unmanageable, and sinfully seductive as Ryder Cavanaugh. Ryder Cavanaugh, Marquess of Raventhorne, had never met a woman who wouldn't happily fall at his feet -- or into his bed ...until Lady Mary Cynster. But Ryder has made some decisions about his life and he'll only succeed at being the man he wants to be with Mary by his side. And convincing her of that fact is just the kind of challenge he thrills at.
