To this end, she enters into society, asking the right questions of the wrong parties. Damian Ward, Duke of Carisbrooke, is a bitter man, damaged by betrayal. By all accounts, he's bleak, loveless, and more than a little mad. A twist of fate finds him rescuing Grace when claustrophobia is about to overwhelm her. Coincidence continues to throw them together, and Damian finds himself reluctantly drawn to the quiet woman who is more than she seems. When the Home Secretary requests Damian's help investigating a diabolical gentlemen's club, the first damning clue leads right back to Grace. Her seeming duplicity strikes too close to home, and Damian retaliates, offering a devil's bargain. Reluctantly, she agrees to become his mistress in exchange for his assistance, her good name for her brother's life. Deeper, they sink into a maelstrom of danger, sure of nothing but their desire for one another.

Mowbray, this was just the challenge he needed. He could handle one
woman and her “unfortunate past.” Could any woman handle him? Lady Clarissa Crambray wanted a husband, but maybe not as much as her stepmother wanted one for her. Really! Doffing her spectacles might make a girl prettier, but how would she see? She'd already caused enough mayhem to earn a rather horrible nickname. Yet, as all other suitors seemed to shy away in terror, there came a man to lead her to the dance floor. A dark, handsome blur of a man. Clumsy Clarissa was about to stumble into true love.
