Description

Learning of his grandfather's death almost a year after his passing, disgraced nobleman, Robert Amberley (Rogue Robin, to his friends) returns to England after a decade of ignoble adventuring to clear his name and claim his legacy as the Duke of Lynkellyn. Although Robin inherits the title, to claim the money, Robin must marry within a year of the duke's death and produce a child from the marriage within two. Otherwise, his treacherous cousin, Giles Bridland, will inherit the fortune. It lacks but a fortnight until the first anniversary of the old duke's death and Robin has yet to find a suitable bride. When Lucia Cothcourt, a spirited governess with a dark secret past, hears rumors of the scandalous duke's arrival in the area and all the tales of his wicked past that fill the local drawing rooms, she pays little attention. His Grace, however, is not quite so indifferent. Rejected by his first choice, a young lady just out of the schoolroom, his fancy lights on the older and wiser Lucia and he offers her a marriage of convenience. When Lucia turns him down, he abducts her and forces her into marriage. But their struggles are not over. Next comes blackmail, and a murder attempt against Lucia...Forced to stand together against a snarling world, Robin and Lucia struggle to overcome their distrust of each other without surrendering to the most dangerous enemy of all: the insistent urgings of their hearts.show more
