Description

"Grace Burrowes is terrific." -Julia Quinn, NYT bestselling author of the Bridgerton series

Between his high-handedness, her pride, and both of their bruised and tender hearts, what else could possibly go wrong?

Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, proposes to prim Lady Thea Collins because he's loathe to waste time on courtship nonsense and Lady Thea should make a biddable duchess. Noah prides himself on his practicality, so he's dismayed when his engagement to Lady Thea embroils him in nothing but trouble. Is he courting a duchess of convenience or a ducal disaster?

Lady Thea has fallen on hard times, and accepts His Grace's proposal because he shows every indication of being a distant and manageable husband. When the duke intrudes into every aspect of Thea's life, and adds humor, tenderness and passionate kisses to their bargain, Thea must take His Grace firmly in hand.
