Can her gentle tenacity unlock a duke’s heart?
Lady Tricia Riley is the sweet daughter of a duke until her family's ailments force her to breech societies’ dictates and go where no lady should...the docklands. When a tall, strong, and handsome stranger helps to keep her safe, she agrees to keep their meeting secret. She’s has no interest in marrying a tall and darkly handsome stranger. Actually, she has no intention of marrying at all. Instead, she plans to dedicate herself to charitable pursuits.
Ryker Pembroke, Duke of Landon, will marry eventually, as duty requires him to do. But it is a fate he regards with a certain amount of dread. That is, until an auburn-haired minx bursts into his life. Her warmth, charm, and giving nature draw him to her, even as he attempts to maintain a safe distance. She is entirely wrong for him with her impulsive nature, and blatant disregard for her own safety makes her a terrible choice for a wife...doesn’t it?
