Devlin Markham, the notorious “Devil Duke” of Huntington, needs a woman. And not just any woman. If he can’t woo one of the most eccentric bluestockings of the Ton within the month, he can kiss his hard-earned fortune goodbye. But he’s always thought love a wasted emotion and marriage an inconvenience at best. And oddly enough, Lady Sophie Wolcott seems unmoved by his charm...
When Sophie learns her beloved orphanage is in imminent danger, she will do anything to save it. Even marry a ruthless rake who takes what he wants in business and pleasure. A man who’s everything she’s always feared most—but whom she reluctantly begins yearning for.
Then Sophie becomes the target of a killer lurking from the dark shadows of Devlin’s past. And they find not only their lives in jeopardy but their very hearts.

A worthy read
What a wonderful, twisting and entertaining read! Wasn’t sure about buying it bc if some of the reviews, but this book was so worth it. What an author. The banter between the H and h, the one liners, the supporting characters-it all came together wonderfully. I enjoyed the mystery, the romance, the suspense and the hilarious banter. Can’t wait to read more by this author. Give her a chance.
