Is the Marquess of Worthington doomed like his ancestors? The notorious rogue doesn't believe in that old legend. But he trusts his instincts, and they're telling him the squire's daughter he once befriended is in danger.
Clare Cummings believed in curses, fairy tale castles, and happy endings—until Worthington broke her heart. But if he's determined to rescue her from a bad betrothal, she might rescue him right back.
Can she save him from the history that haunts him, or will the curse destroy them both?
