Description

Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he's infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea's mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?

As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn't expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?

Praise for Grace Burrowes: "Burrowes has a knack for giving fresh twists to genre tropes and developing them in unexpected and delightful directions [with] consistently excellent writing, deep and layered stories, and intelligent and compassionate characters." -Publishers Weekly "Warmth, sensuality, and humor infuse Burrowes' writing." -Booklist "Burrowes continues to captivate and enchant!" -Fresh Fiction

display_description "Between his high-handedness, her pride, and both of their bruised and tender hearts, what else could possibly go wrong? Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, proposes to prim Lady Thea Collins because he's loath to waste time on courtship nonsense and Lady Thea should make a biddable duchess. Noah prides himself on his practicality, so he's dismayed when his engagement to Lady Thea embroils him in nothing but trouble. Is he courting a duchess of convenience or a ducal disaster? Lady Thea has fallen on hard times, and accepts His Grace's proposal because he shows every indication of being a distant and manageable husband. When the duke intrudes into every aspect of Thea's life, and adds humor, tenderness, and passionate kisses to their bargain, Thea must take His Grace firmly in hand"--Page [4] of cover.
