Summary

The Duchess of Cosway yearns for a man she has never met . . . her husband. 
Married by proxy as a child, Lady Isidore has spent years fending off lecherous men in every European court while waiting to meet her husband. She's determined to accept him, no matter how unattractive the duke turns out to be. When she finally lures Simeon Jermyn back to London, his dark handsomeness puts Isidore's worst fears to rest—until disaster strikes. 
The duke demands an annulment. 
Forsaking his adventuresome past, Simeon has returned to London ready to embrace the life of a proper duke, only to find that his supposed wife is too ravishing, too headstrong, and too sensual to be the docile duchess he has in mind. But Isidore will not give up her claim to the title—or him—without a fight. 
She will do whatever it takes to capture Simeon's heart, even if it means sacrificing her virtue. After all, a consummated marriage cannot be annulled. 
Yet in forcing Simeon into a delicious surrender, will Isidore risk not only her dignity—but her heart?

    Your presence is requested at romantic Twill Castle for the wedding of Miss Clio Whitmore and . . . and . . . ? 
    After eight years of waiting for Piers Brandon, the wandering Marquess of Granville, to set a wedding date, Clio Whitmore has had enough. She's inherited a castle, scraped together some pride, and made plans to break her engagement. 
    Not if Rafe Brandon can help it. A ruthless prizefighter and notorious rake, Rafe is determined that Clio will marry his brother—even if he has to plan the dratted wedding himself. 
    So how does a hardened fighter cure a reluctant bride's cold feet?   He starts with flowers. Ladies can't have too many flowers. Or harps. Or cakes.   He lets her know she'll make a beautiful, desirable bride— and tries not to picture her as his.   He doesn't kiss her.   If he kisses her, he definitely doesn't kiss her again.   When all else fails, he puts her in a stunning gown and vows not to be nearby when the gown comes off.   And no matter what—he doesn't fall in disastrous, hopeless love with the one woman he can never call his own.
