When the Duke of Hartshorne returns to London after his father’s death, he barely hopes to find his heart’s desire still waits for him. She’s not, and the favor she asks of him will take every ounce of his honor to take on.
Lady Marjorie Gideon gave up hope of Hart’s return, and is now engaged to another man, the Earl of Quorndon. Quorndon fails to show up for their wedding, however. Rather than relief, Marjorie feels it’s her duty to discover what happened to the earl who has vanished completely, and to marry him as she promised. Can she battle her attraction to Hart long enough to learn if her fate with Quorndon is sealed?
