The Earldom of Rothgard has a long and storied history of strength, wealth, and integrity. But the death of the current matriarch hits everyone hard – most especially the Earl – and he tumbles into a mourning so intense his life becomes lost in a shroud of grief. His eldest daughter, Lady Isobel, steps up to lead the family while her brother attends university and her younger sisters continue to experience a childhood of some normalcy.
Finding weaknesses in all Lady Isobel establishes to protect her family, an enemy seizes an opportunity to launch financial and personal attacks. When treading water in the mess only yields an overwhelming sense of imminent drowning, she is forced to seek aid—the fate of her family depends upon it.
Help arrives in the form of a confident, handsome gentleman seemingly suited more for the ballroom than the battlefield. The Duke of Conall, the 'Wulf of the North,' is an enigma in bespoke boots and tailored jackets. Yet behind the facade of cultivated ennui and charm beats the heart of a warrior—one who quickly recognizes the enemy tormenting the Rothgard family.
The Duke comes prepared to fight...but did he also come prepared for love?
