But once her secrets meet his, society might consider their lives to be ruined beyond repair…while Jeffrey might just see it as a new beginning.
Lady Phoebe Fairchild is well aware that the ton would be appalled to learn of a young lady of quality involved in a trade. Therefore, she resorts to selling her beautiful handmade gowns under a fictitious name: Madame Dupree. So when circumstances force her to visit the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield, to design ball gowns for his sisters, she assumes Madame's identity. Phoebe's discomfort in her new position as hired help is nothing compared to her visceral attraction to the viscount himself. Heathenishly handsome and shamelessly seductive, Will invites her to be his mistress -- and Phoebe is shockingly tempted to accept. But as their desire for each other grows and the risk of exposure becomes even greater, Phoebe is in dire danger of losing her reputation, her livelihood -- and her chance of becoming the bride of the man whose passion has claimed her forever.

People are currently paying much attention to the ability of present and future human populations to influence Earth's climate through the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide. According to some, such a self-induced change in our physical environment qualifies humans for the distinction of a "superspecies" that has passed a threshold of biological evolution. Some 2 to 3 billion years ago, another organism changed the environment in a very pronounced way: a primitive unicellular organism called cyanobacteria (blue- green algae). These cyanobacteria "discovered" a new energy source that enabled them to develop a photosynthetic apparatus that assimilates carbon dioxide through conversion of solar energy to chemical energy. In the process, a "useless" waste product, oxygen, began to accumulate and gradually changed the composition of the atmosphere. As a result, new, more complex oxygen-consuming forms of life evolved, eventually leading to humans. The algae that started it all, while still flourishing, then became the first link in a very elaborate food chain.
