Three Reasons Lady Valiant Chase Should Avoid the Dashing Duke of Cartelle:
1- He's a murderer, a brute, and will challenge any man to a duel for the barest of slights- including those gentlemen who offend her.
2- He's a shameless flirt... and his kisses leave her breathless.
3- She's a widow and her first marriage was terrible.
So… instead of giving into the desires that build whenever the Duke of Cartelle is near, she runs.
But… Anthony Balfour, the Duke of Cartelle, will not allow Valiant to get away that easily.
Years ago, they struck a deal.
She'd find him a wife capable of loving the brute that he was.
Or… bed him herself.
And win or lose, he wants her.
But with danger around every corner, Valiant will have to decide the safest place for her to be. Far away from the man who's awakened a passion she never knew herself capable of?
Or in the arms of the last duke she'd ever thought to love?
