The Taste of Innocence : Charles Morwellan, Earl of Meredith, knows he must marry, and so he offers for his neighbor, Lady Sarah Conningham. She's intelligent, beautiful, and knows the value of his offer. What he doesn't anticipate is her demand for love. Charles only has two weeks to win Sarah's hand. Each night sensual embraces turn to searing kisses and each day he maintains an aloof distance, as if the near-sinful sweetness of their nights exists only in a dream. Sarah battles to prove that true love is a force that can't be contained, but it's only when she's engulfed in a web of danger that Charles discovers how much he's willing to surrender to protect . . . the taste of innocence.
