When Will Pieter Surrender?
Pieter has wanted Tessa from the first moment he saw her when she'd been a sweet seventeen-year-old, not yet out in Society. And now that she was to begin her second year as the most sought-after young woman of the ton, he still refuses to believe she is ready for marriage.
Does Tessa Have The Patience To Wait?
Tessa believed that no matter how long she waited Pieter would always see her as the young untried girl she was at that first dinner party and would never accept that she was ready to begin a family and be his wife in every way.
Perhaps it will take a threat by her sister Juliana’s former nemesis, Gabrielle Tyson. Lady Tyson would love to see the whole Hastings family brought to ruin and especially, Tessa’s guardian, Marquess Huntleigh, one of the celebrated Brothers. She wanted them all to pay for the humiliation she suffered because of his rejection of her. She knows just the man to do it; a man who has had a grudge against the Hastings family for years. Will he be allowed to bring his depraved appetites to bear in the ruination of this young girl?
