In every life there is a turning point.
A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one's life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London's most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.
After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca's surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer — the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.
But that was then … Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

    This was a really insightful read into the causes of malaria in the Victorian era and the effects of malaria.

    Michael‟s chin came to rest on her head. “I didn‟t mean that you didn‟t need to say it,” he murmured, “just that you didn‟t have to repeat it.”

    She laughed at that, even as the tears kept flowing, and both of their bodies shook.

    “You have to say it,” he said. “If you feel it, then you have to say it. I‟m a greedy bastard, and I want it all.”

    She looked up at him, her eyes bright. “I love you.”

    Michael touched her cheek. “I have no idea what I did to deserve you,” he said.

    “You didn‟t have to do anything,” she whispered. “You just had to be.” She reached up and touched his cheek, the gesture a perfect mirror of his own. “It just took me a while to realize it, that‟s all.”

    Abruptly, he removed his boot from Sir Geoffrey‟s chest and hauled the quivering man to his feet. Grabbing him by his lapels, he pinned him against the tree and then jerked his own body forward until the two men were nearly nose to nose.

    “Doesn‟t feel so good to be trapped, does it?” Michael taunted.

    Sir Geoffrey said nothing, just stared at him in terror.

    “Do you have something to say to the lady?”

    Sir Geoffrey shook his head frantically.

    Michael slammed his head back against the tree. “Think harder!” he growled.

    “I‟m sorry!” Sir Geoffrey squeaked.

    Rather like a girl, Francesca thought dispassionately. She‟d known he wouldn‟t make a good husband, but that clinched it.

    But Michael was not through with him. “If you ever step within ten yards of Lady Kilmartin again, I will personally disembowel you.”

    Even Francesca flinched.

    “Am I understood?” Michael ground out.

    Another squeak, and this time Sir Geoffrey sounded like he might cry.

    “Get out of here,” Michael grunted, shoving the terrified man away. “And while you‟re at it, endeavor to leave town for a month or so.”

    Sir Geoffrey looked at him in shock.

    Michael stood still, dangerously so, and then shrugged one insolent shoulder. “You won‟t be missed,” he said softly.

    Francesca realized she was holding her breath. He was terrifying, but he was also magnificent, and it shook her to her very core to realize that she‟d never seen him thus.

    Never dreamed he could be like this.
