What are the odds these surly Scottish ex-comrades-in-arms have all unexpectedly inherited dukedoms? Perhaps they should form a club. Get ready for more laugh-out-loud ridiculousness, and plenty of heat, in this new HIstRomCom series!
The Duke's Deceitful Governess
Love is a luxury he can’t afford…
For years, he was known only as Blackrose’s Blade, an elite assassin in the employ of the Crown. But after a mission which cost him the use of his leg, Rourke Lindsay has unexpectedly inherited a dukedom…and along with it, the headache of a pair of hellion twins. His niece and nephew have been kicked out of every school he’s sent them to and scared off every governess he’s hired; now he’s in dire need of a miracle.
He just didn’t expect her to be quite so tempting.
Needing a safe place to hide, Miss Sophia Cuny has forged her references and settled into the Duke of Exingham’s employ, unwilling to admit she knows next to nothing about children. (How hard can child-rearing be, after all? Perhaps there’s a book on the subject she could send off for…) She does, however, know all about the duke’s covert past, and why the cynical Scot refuses to allow himself close to a pair of rapscallion troublemakers, no matter how desperately they need his love.
And the longer she tries to avoid the new duke, the more she sees the man beneath the scars—the man who needs love as well, even if he’s unwilling to admit it. Too bad she can’t afford to allow him into her heart, even as the danger she’s been running from closes in.
Because Sophia possesses secrets about his past even Rourke doesn’t know, and revealing the truth will ruin them all.
