Easy Prey . . .
To save the family manor, Viscount Leighton Somerset was forced to snare a wealthy wife and the lovely Melissa Hampton was his target. Her coolness toward fortune hunters had earned her the title "Lady Disdain," but Leighton wasted no time in warming the girl up to the idea of wedlock.
Though hard experience had trained Melissa to evade charmers like Leighton, the clever man had soon maneuvered her straight into matrimony. Accepting her fate, Melissa was now tempted to relax the careful guard around her heart. But someone was still stalking her – in deadly earnest – and it appeared to be her husband.
