Seeing to the safety and well-being of her brother Harry is all the incentive Rosalind Sharpe needs to assuage any guilt. The men she swindles are very wealthy, yet none have come close to the mark in her sights right now.

The endless parade of women, parties, and games are beginning to wear on the Duke of Avendale. Despite his fortune, or maybe because of it, he often finds himself lonely. Though he has no desire to fall into the pit of marriage like his peers.

Almost instantly Rose questions her decision to pursue Avendale, yet she is as drawn to him as she is to the challenge he represents. Of all the men she has conned, not one of them ever came close to her heart. Avendale is the exception, and most probably her downfall. Never has Avendale met a woman remotely like Rose, nor has he wanted one more, yet it is the love she showers on her brother and friends that thoroughly steals his heart. It kills him to realize that for all of his money and influence, nothing means more than her happiness, and not even a duke has the power to shield her from the pain ahead.

There is often a recurring theme to historical romance, and though this story does follow that same path, you are going to find so much more. Rose’s devotion for her brother Harry is unmatched, yet it is the bond Avendale forms with the young man that truly steals your heart. Harry is a beacon of light that warms everyone he touches, even the passion between Rose and Avendale pales in comparison. This is as much his story as theirs, and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to read it.
