Alexandra Dunforth’s conniving uncle is forcing her into wedding a man she doesn’t know. Her uncle is determined. He’s threatened to sell Helmsby Abbey, the only home Alexandra has ever known, and throw the estate’s staff into the streets if he doesn’t get his way. But her uncle has the intelligence of a turnip, surely Alexandra can manage to outwit him and save all she holds dear.
After years of living in Macao, Sutton “Satan” Reynolds, the decadent, handsome Marquess of Cambourne, has finally returned to take his place in society. As beautiful as he is wealthy, the ladies of the ton are lining up to be ruined at his hands. He finds them all tedious and boring until he meets the delectable Miss Dunforth. Miss Dunforth seems immune to his charms. In fact, the tart-tongued spinster assures Sutton that she finds him arrogant. Annoying. And lacking in some way.
One wicked kiss leads to a scandalous attraction.
Determined to save her home, Alexandra has no time to flirt with scandalous rakes, especially one who sports a dragon tattoo and possesses a ridiculous nickname. Lord Cambourne is a distraction Alexandra can ill afford, even after he kisses her. Besides, she’s certain he is only toying with her for his own amusement. After all, notorious rakes don’t desire plain, bookish spinsters from Hampshire.
