A woman with a shocking past…
Branded a money-hungry con artist for marrying the elderly Duke of Tremaine days before his death, Viola Cartwright has found refuge in her work at St. Agatha’s Hospital. No one must know the painful reason behind her marriage. She steers clear of attachments—until Henry Lowell, heir to the Viscount Armswell, lands on her operating table after a duel. Charming and wickedly handsome, Lowell is one of London’s most inveterate scoundrels. Yet he may not be all that he appears.
And the man who can promise a future filled with love…
Posing as an unrepentant rake has helped Lowell avoid women pursuing him only for his title. But now that duty has finally called on him to marry, he finds himself entranced by the mysterious, independent-minded Viola. Then her late husband’s son returns from overseas, contesting Viola’s inheritance. Lowell longs to help her and sets out to convince Viola that a strategic union may be the best way to save all she holds dear. But can he also persuade her to take a chance on love…?
It feels like I have been waiting for—-ev—er to get my hands on this book! And as always Sophie Jordan’s ability to create an incredible story around a strong leading lady made this book irresistible! Watching this story unfold was a pure joy and I hope you all like it as much as I did.
Viola Cartwright, Duchess of Tremaine works hard as proprietress St. Agatha’s Hospital to make sure every patient receives the quality care no matter who they are. As a widow she has devoted her life to her work and has no aspirations for love or the social life of the ton. But when a certain brother of her business partner requires her devoted medical care she may just have to change her mind.
Henry Lowell has been known as “a proper scoundrel” who is “always flirting with one woman or another.” And it is no wonder that he found himself in a hospital bed at his brother’s hospital with a bullet wound in his shoulder.It’s in that hospital bed that he meets the one woman who makes him want to change his ways. Too bad he is a Duke and he is required to marry someone with noble blood and she is merely a nurse…. Or is she?
I loved reading this book and how these characters work together to make incredible things happen. I want all of you to love it just as much as I do.
