The shocking and too intimate actions of the most dangerous, handsome smuggler of them all, Lord Jack Holberton, might save them even if it will ruin Francesca for ever.

Holberton, the youngest son of the Duke of Devonshire, is society’s bad boy and a rake through and through. Drink, gambling and women, and now it seems that he’s masquerading as a smuggler just to relieve the boredom.

But what happens between him and Miss Linden aboard the smuggler’s vessel that night so close to Christmas is far from anything that Jack has ever known.

Will the rake keep his Twelfth Night promise and return to claim Francesca as his own?
