Simon Cynster had a life most would be envied of - wealth, social status, looks, he had almost everything one would wish for in life.
Except that it was almost everything. What or rather, who was missing in his otherwise perfect life was a wife and to have a blissfully happy marriage experienced by all Cynsters. To avoid the ambituous mamas with their unmarried daughters, Simon began his search discreetly and ended up with the lady he had never thought was possible - Portia Ashford, the raven-haired girl he had known for years. The same girl who had always shown liitle interest in marriage.
A passionate kiss shared between them changed their long-standing friendship. Even more shocking, a murder was committed and Portia seemed likely to be the next victim. Simon had to protect her, he could never allow himself to lose his only perfect lover.
