To avoid spending her future living off the kindness of relatives, spinster Miss Eleanor Lockhart must secure a position as a paid companion. Ruined after succumbing to a scoundrel’s excessive charm nearly a decade ago, she’s lucky to obtain employment and committed to behaving with the utmost propriety. She definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of a man capable of utterly destroying what little remains of her reputation...
Titus St. John, Duke of Kendal, is known as the Forbidden Duke, a mysterious, intimidating figure who enters Society just once each year at his stepmother’s ball. A decade ago, he was a devil-may-care rake until his idle roguery brought about the ruin of Eleanor Lockhart—and his resulting self-imposed isolation. Now she’s back, and she needs his help. But by “saving” her, he may just ruin her life all over again.
Atonement for the past
After his encouragement of a friend lead to the downfall of a lady, Titus changed his rakish lifestyle and became reclusive. However his stepmother’s new companion draws him like a moth to a flame. Will he be singed when Nora finds out the truth about the past? Enjoyable though I’m not sure that Nora would have risked her reputation for a second time, hence the loss of a star.
A wonderful story well written with the right romantic ending to continue with an other story thank you very much 🌸❤️🌺
