Summary

When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules… 
Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do. 
His terms are simple: 
- They will be husband and wife by night only. 
- No lights, no kissing.  
- No questions about his battle scars.  
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again. 
But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own: 
- They will have dinner together every evening.  
- With conversation. 
- And unlimited teasing. 
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…
