The Viscount Claims His Bride For years Valerian Inglemoore, Viscount St. Just, lived a double life as a secret agent on the war-torn Continent. Returning home, he knows exactly what he wants: to claim Philippa Stratten, the woman he gave up, as his bride. But Philippa is not the naive debutante he left behind...The Earl's Forbidden Ward Peyton Ramsden, Earl of Dursley, has no time for girls, especially those who are suddenly given over to his care! Miss Tessa Branscombe, in particular, is trouble. The innocent debutante tempts this very proper earl to misbehave-and forbidden fruit always tastes that much sweeter!
