Devil’s Cub (Alastair – Audley #2) by Georgette Heyer
Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal is well known for his recklessness, being a seducer, and possessed by a murderous temper than anyone else, BUT, he is a handsome and wealthy heir to a Dukedom and he is looked as a good prospect.
Vidal currently has his eyes on Sophia Challoner, who is stupid, but a lovely young lady and her greedy mother is 100% positive towards Vidal’s proposal. There they left for France, where Vidal left Sophia stranded in a foreign country. It is only the man who took her there to rescue her, but we don’t know whether she still holds a place in her heart for that man once he shows up again.
