It was love at first sight.
It was disaster in the end.
Lady Selena Gorm still remembers the day she met the Duke of Astlen…
It was the day he ripped her heart from her chest and broke it into a million pieces.
She's been in hiding from him for years…
But… when her family was in trouble, she knew she needed to return to London.
Only to find out all the trouble was created to get her back to London.
And the person behind the ruse was the one who'd ruined her life.
The Duke of Astlen.
Marley Bing never meant to hurt Selena.
He'd been young and foolish then, but now the duke knows exactly what he wants.
And … it's Selena.
He has carried her in his heart for years.
And now that she's returned, he'll use every talent he has to convince her to give him a second chance.
But secrets rest between them, and time has brought it's own complications.
This time around, can love take root and thrive?
Or will it die forever?
