The three year old girl sitting on the steps of Brown's Club for Distinguished Gentlemen in London insists that one of its members is her father. Aidan de Quincy feels obligated to help the wee thing, even though she certainly isn't his - or is she? To find answers, Aidan must first track down the lovely widow he swore to forget when their passionate affair came to a painful end. It doesn't help that Madeleine Chandler is as sensual and enticing as ever...For three years, Madeleine has dreamed of seeing Aidan on her doorstep. The secret that once forced her to leave him now compels her to pretend that this sweet child is hers - a lie Aidan will surely never forgive. Yet the contended days and exquisite nights that follow are worth the heartbreak she knows must come. The truth will out - an when it does, there will be the devil to pay.
