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.

It was a struggle to finish this book. The story is tedious and the two main characters lack chemistry and personality.
The Forbidden Duke
In the early 1800s someone in the ton is always creating drama. This is the best “happily ever after” a ruined girl could hope for.
Enter Nora who must find a place to live as her father is now broke and must go some where he rather did not have to go. Nora decides to find a job as a companion and luck has it that she will get a second chance at love, romance and marriage. Lady Satterfield chooses her as her companion but later decides to help her have another chance at happiness. Her stepson, Titus is going to help but not for the reason to help because he wants to help right a wrong done to Nora years ago. As the story begins! An excellent book which I throughly enjoyed!
