Leaving her job at a safari park, Crissie Williams leaves her car in a safe area, and comes face-to-face with a lion. So not the way she expected to die. Until her savior arrives in the form of another English lion, this one a jaw-droppingly sexy man.
Alastair Burton has a highly successful construction business, but he's also Lord Winsley, heir to the Marquis of Farleigh.
After his father's heart attack, he wants him to retire, but the stubborn old man won't do it until Alastair has provided him with an heir. After seeing the disaster of his parents' marriage Alastair has vowed never to let love into his life. He needs somebody who won't expect more than he's prepared to give.
When he rescues a waitress from the jaws of a lion, he sees a woman that fills his criteria, but the gorgeous Crissie proves more than he can handle. She wants the one thing he won't give her—love.
Escaping from a traumatic past, Crissie wants no more drama in her life. If she agrees to Alastair's cold-blooded proposal, she can buy homes for her disabled mother and their friends, instead of seeing them rehomed in soulless flats. One problem—she's falling in love with the gorgeous aristocrat who sees everything in black and white. Crissie, an artist to the tips of her toes, prefers color.
When he discovers the scandal staining her past, Alastair realizes that she is far from a convenient bride, but by then it's too late.
He already loves her.
