The Brethren Guardians
But Adrian, Lord Sussex, is not the man the London ton has come to admire. His prim façade is only a means to conceal the ruinous secret that would shatter any chance of winning Lucy's affections, and when he finally reveals his sensual nature she responds in kind. Yet there is someone else who knows the truth, someone who would use it to destroy Adrian's happiness. Passion has a price, Lucy soon learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.
