It seemed so simple. Roland Connor intended wreck revenge on the woman his enemy holds dearest. Daniel had debauched his sister, leading her to her grave. His plan is perfect. He'd seduce the innocent woman destined to be Daniel's wife. He'd teach her harlot tricks, and maybe late one night, when she lies in her husband's arms, rather than calling out her husband's name, she'll call out Roland's name instead. He didn't know she'd teach him to love.
