What he needs is someone to help him practice socializing with the ton. Someone who isn’t frightened away by his scars . . .Margery Kitteridge is still mourning the loss of her husband. So when she receives a blackmail letter accusing him of desertion, she’s desperate to protect his reputation. The answer to her troubles appears in the form of a damaged, reclusive—and much-too-desirable—duke in need of a wife.

But working so closely together awakens passions they never imagined possible, and reveals secrets that might tear them apart.
