This was actually the first book and the one that I should have been reading before His Wicked Seduction. So this is how it went down in the beginning. You meet Emily Parr who is desperate to find a husband on her own so that she can get away from her uncle and the person her uncle has a debt to, Blankenship. While riding, she ends up getting kidnapped by the League of Rogues and one of them has a pretty solid reason for doing this. When Emily comes to she finds herself in a home that is not her own and realizes that she is not going anywhere. That doesn't stop her from realizing how hard this man can be and also how soft. What I loved about Godric is that he was very blunt at the same time respectful. Don't get it twisted he does want her but he's respectful enough to not let it go too far. Being held in that house does not help Emily, it actually ruins her because of the Leagues reputation.
Emily eventually ends up meeting all the Rogues and starts to have turmoil in her mind about how she is going to get out of this situation at the same time she is slightly comfortable around them. Godric is having a hard time trying to seduce her, but he finds himself wanting as something more than mistress.
