They had a deal…
From the moment she met the devil-may-care Duke of Margrave, Edie knew he could change her life. And when he agreed to her outrageous proposal of a marriage of convenience, she was transformed from ruined American heiress to English duchess. Five years later, she’s delighted with their arrangement, especially since her husband is living on another continent.
But deals are made to be broken…
By marrying an heiress, Stuart was able to pay his family’s enormous debts, and Edie’s terms that he leave England forever seemed a small price to pay. But when a brush with death impels him home, he decides it’s time for a real marriage with his luscious American bride, and he proposes a bold new bargain: ten days to win her willing kiss. But is ten days enough to win her heart?
The image of her moonlit face, as luminous and smooth
as alabaster, flashed across his mind, as vivid now as it had been that fateful
night at Hanford House—so vivid, in fact, that despite his many efforts over
the years not to think of her, he’d failed more often than he’d succeeded. It
had been her image that invaded his dreams during his delirium-filled fever,
not the dangerous events that had nearly killed him. Even now, he could hear
her voice clearly, so resolute and uncompromising. That you never, ever
come back. Well, as he’d told her then, never was a long time.
Circumstances changed, and plans went awry. His certainly had. He turned on the
carriage seat, grimacing as he shifted his weight onto one hip and stretched
out his leg. The sea voyage from Mombasa to Constantinople hadn’t been too bad,
even without Jones. He felt another grimace of pain that had nothing to do with
his leg, and he put his valet out of his mind. Jones was gone, and there was
nothing he could do about that. He focused on the pain in his leg instead. That
was easier to bear. On the ship, he’d been able to move about freely, but
trains and carriages were a different matter. The muscles of his thigh had
knotted up before he’d even reached Rome, and by now they were so constricted
that he felt his right leg must surely be at least an inch shorter than his
A duke who needs to be tamed…a lady who refuses to be rescued.
Adam Chamberlin was the third son of a duke, known for gambling binges and drunken nights. No one expected anything of him …until tragedy strikes. Now Adam is the new Duke of Rothford, determined to right the wrongs he’s done. Except a secret in his past means helping the one woman who doesn’t want his help at all…
It’s not every day that a duke introduces himself to a woman sitting by herself in Hyde Park. Faith Cooper is even more surprised when Adam offers her a position as a lady’s companion to his elderly aunt. Faith refuses to be beholden to a man again-certainly not this man, who both infuriates and attracts her. But with the simmering passion between them, will Faith surrender to forbidden desire?
