The Fickle Winds of Passion

From the moment she saw him, Natalina Kingsbury knew that Lord Winsthrup Woodsmanor was the only man she could ever love. And he swore his love was true – but on their wedding night declared he had wed only to produce an heir. Crushed, Natalina began a torrid affair with Everett Stevedore, Lord Woodsmanor’s rugged stableboy.

Their passion was a burning fire – until Everett’s eyes fell on the creamy bosom of Vivienne DuSolais, Natalina’s tutor. Their romance was wild like a tempest, and would have blown fiercely forever, had Vivienne not taken a shine to Everett’s young brother Raph, the alpine adventurer.

Together they traveled passionately – until Raph discovered Natalina in Minsk. Heartbroken, Vivienne lost herself in the arms of Natalina’s manly twin brother, Nathan, while Raph and Natalina’s eternal love was shattered when Raph revealed he was only using her to get to Lord Woodsmanor-

Who was shagging the horse.
