He would do anything to protect her. Even marry her… 

The son of a cold-hearted duke, Nicholas St. Mauer isn’t one to involve himself in society…or open his own heart to anyone. But driven by honor, the reclusive Earl of Somerton feels obliged to keep a watchful eye on Lady Emma Cavensham. She possesses a penchant for passions unbecoming a woman that finds Nick in constant peril of losing his well-structured solitude. She even dared kiss Nick once―an utterly unladylike, and delightful, lapse…

Emma can’t deny the appeal of the earl’s attention, and occasional affection, but she has no need for a man. There are worse fates than spinsterhood, as Emma knows too well. She still mourns the loss of her dear friend Lena, and is determined to prove Lena’s husband responsible for her death before he lures another innocent woman into a brutal marriage. But as Emma pursues her prey, a compromising moment upends all her plans. Now, with gossip swirling and her reputation in tatters, Nick may be the only man brave enough to join in Emma’s cause. . .and fight for her heart.


Nicholas St. Mauer,  the Earl of Somerton has worked very hard to make his own fortune.  The ton might look down on him for going into trade,  but it means everything to him to succeed.
Lady Emma Cavensham is desperately sad over the death of her best friend.  She blames herself for not protecting her.  She is determined never to marry and lose control over her life. 
Both our hero and heroine have very strong ideas on what they expect from themselves and their lives.  Unfortunately for our heroine women of her time don't always get a choice. 
This is quite an emotional story where you will be totally drawn in to the characters lives.  I expect there will be other stories to follow because the secondary characters we met are well worth hearing more from. 
A thoroughly entertaining read.
