Justin Trevelyan, the new Duke of Marlow, has everything a woman could want. Yet match-making mamas hide their daughters whenever he steps into a ballroom. They call him Devil Trevelyan—an arrogant beast of a man, a notorious libertine who has raised debauchery to an art form. No one sees the ugly scars hidden beneath his handsome face and reckless spirit.
Isabel Darracott is determined to convince her negligent guardian to provide for her two younger sisters. Instead of the middle-aged gentleman she expected to find in London, she tangles with a half-clad barbarian intent on ravishing her. When she realizes the horrible truth, she insists Justin appoint an appropriate guardian.
Astonished by his estranged father’s will, Justin abhors the idea of guardianship to this impertinent spinster and her two sisters. Yet, Isabel has tossed the gauntlet. She challenges him, defies him, captivates him with her gentle beauty and strong spirit. As they untangle an ancient mystery and investigate the murders of her father and brother, Justin realizes he must prove his honor to earn a chance for this angel to redeem his soul.
