Summary

What's a duke to do, when the girl who's perfectly wrong becomes the woman he can't live without? 
Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season—or any season—but his diabolical mother abducts him to "Spinster Cove" and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl. 
Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn't dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week's employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother's "duchess training"… and fail miserably. 
But in London, Pauline isn't a miserable failure. She's a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure—a woman who ignites Griff's desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won't be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess—can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart?

    Tess Masterson awakes to find handsome Cameron Hawksmoor in her bed. She is ruined! Who will wed her now? It doesn’t matter, her father tells her, because she is already married. To Cameron. The son of a duke who was, before his death, Tess’s father’s good friend, Cameron wants to arrange for an annulment. But how is that possible when, still half-asleep himself, he just woke Tess with a kiss? This is madness, but only the beginning when they both know that the only way out is divorce, which will ruin Tess completely. As they learn more about each other, neither wants to hurt the other. Tess can see that Cameron fears his fierce temper so much that he tries to show no emotion, but that coolness is tested when a terrible accident leaves his brother’s two young illegitimate sons in their care and makes Cameron a duke. Tess and Cameron must work together and learn to trust each other as other accidents happen. It becomes clear that they are not truly accidents. Who would want to kill two little boys? Or are they the real target? Tess and Cameron must uncover the truth if they have any hopes of saving the children and their own fragile love.

And unless she chooses to risk all to be his bride, he'll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he's fought so hard to save—the passionate marriage they could have together.
