Are you ready for some super-steamy, laugh-out-loud fun? Desperate to save her family's business, Olivia makes a daring offer (winkwink) to the scarred and silent duke...but never expects marriage!
What is the price of her innocence?
Miss Olivia Wilson is desperate, and desperate women do daring things. No, not the time she ventured into the East End alone after dark—and had to be rescued by a tall, dark mysterious stranger—but she’s willing to do just about anything to save her family’s newspaper. When her biggest investor pulls his funding, she confronts him, willing to become his mistress if that’s what it will take. He might not speak, but she can’t deny his dark and dangerous appeal, and there would be worse hardships than becoming a fascinating duke’s plaything.
Alistair Kincaid, the Duke of Effinghell, would rather chew nails than allow Society an opportunity to mock him for his silence. Instead, he uses his days—and nights—protecting others without voices. He might need a wife, but he isn’t going find one at a ball or musicale or other bit of nonsense. Then he realizes the daring beauty currently berating him in his study is exactly what he needs; her desperation will allow him the upper hand in his bargain, and her curves make his inexperienced palms itch to stroke her.
But this marriage of convenience is about to become complicated, as Olivia’s newspaper unravels past mysteries and Alistair's ridiculous family gets involved. To save his inconvenient wife—again—he’ll have to confront his deepest fears and lure a villain into the open. Olivia’s daring might just mean disaster for them all!
Warning: Contents are HOT. If you can relate to a curvy, clumsy, well-meaning and audacious heroine, who thinks the right path is always full steam ahead, then Alistair will be your new book boyfriend… Promise!
