His Grace, Damian Seymour, the duke of Weston, cordially invites you to his wedding…if only he can get his chosen bride to the altar.
Miss Lucilla Teversham is a lighthearted soul with an intrepid spirit and an inherent love of books. After surviving a horrible crime, she conceals a dark secret, abandons her hobby and England in favor of life in America, and plunges headlong into the world, vowing to partake of various adventures and not just read about them. When Lucy is summoned to London to testify against the ruthless criminal who destroyed her youthful naïveté, she must also address unresolved feelings for a certain dashing Nautionnier Knight. But can her beau help her confront the demons of her past, to find happiness with him?
His Grace, Damian Seymour, is known throughout the ton as the voice of reason. In all things, he seeks order and tranquility. After he falls for his best friend’s sister-in-law, a hoydenish young woman he cannot resist, he plans his pursuit with customary care and precision. Of course, the unpredictable lady does not cooperate, so Damian must plot a new tack, with Lucy in his sights. When she divulges a shocking truth, he must abandon the logic that defines his character and embrace a new path, which just might lead to ruin.
