David’s plan for revenge didn’t involve courtship or heartbreak.
Stubborn. Hard-headed. Single-minded. The qualities that make David Lumley a successful horse breeder are put to work befriending Lady Joanna Hurst with less than noble intentions. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of the answers he seeks.
Lady Joanna falls fast and hard for the handsome, witty and charming Mr. Lumley after her brother’s ultimatum to find a husband by the end of the Season. He is everything she imagined a husband could be, and more. Blissfully unaware of the conflict between their fathers, she believes he’ll declare his love soon. Then she overhears a conversation between Mr. Lumley and her brother, and all of Mr. Lumley’s tenacity will be needed if he’s to win back her heart.

He’s the last man she could imagine as a father, and the very last man her brother would consider letting her marry. Yet one little kiss leaves her unable to think of anything but this impetuous rakehell. Now her Season has taken a twist she never expected, and she’s forced to marry Oakhurst instead of the man she expected to propose.
Laurence hates himself for letting his jealousy overrule his common sense, but Hannah hates him even more. He can give her the family she’s dreamed of, if only she can learn to trust him.
