Samuel Weinwright, Duke of Ellinston was known for his handsome looks. He enjoyed being a confirmed bachelor. There was nothing he needed or wanted. He had it all. His life was perfect.
That is, until, the Duke of Sheridan, Royce Ramsey, asked him be one of three protectors for a set of triplets whose father had been murdered. Not only would he have to protect the chit from some murdering knave, but he would also have to endure his marriage-minded grandmother as well.
Cordelia Sedway had just lost her father and now she was being separated from her two sisters. She understands it was for their protection, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it. But nothing in her nineteen years could have prepared her for the handsome rake who would be her protector. Her first sight of the Duke of Ellinston nearly had her crumbling to the ground. She never knew one man could possess so much sensual masculinity.
Samuel had agreed to be a protector for some chit, not to the gorgeous creature who arrived at his home. For the love of England! He was a bachelor, a rake, a womanizer. . .not some bloody saint. One thing he didn’t need was to have this innocent, beautiful woman beneath his roof. Part of him wanted to send her back to Sheridan. . .the other part wanted to capture the little pirate.
