Julian Selby, Duke of Enfield, comes from a long line of people who fall deeply in love. Love that can be either a blessing or a curse, depending on whether it is returned. When Julian rescues a lovely lady from a country storm, he knows at once she’s the one for him. To gain time for his courtship, he tricks her into believing he’s a simple gentleman. But when she learns the truth, she may never trust him again.
Rosalinde Hewitt, daughter of a country vicar, accepted another man’s offer of marriage to escape her quiet life. She’s crushed when her suitor doesn’t appear at their assignation—that is, until Mr. Selby sweeps her into a flirtation that opens her heart to joy and laughter. At last, she’s found a man she can trust with her heart…until she learns who he really is. Can even a meddling goddess convince her a duke may truly love a country miss?
