Tortured duke Gibb Alford has vowed never to love again…until a beautiful French knife-thrower brings him to his knees.
When Gibb Alford, Duke of Menteith, saves a beautiful French knife-thrower from the unwanted attentions of a fellow aristocrat he is ill-prepared for the immediate tug of attraction to the beautiful Evangeline. Widowed, he has sworn off love forever, so he can well do without this temptation.
Evangeline certainly doesn’t want the complication of being in the sights of one smoky-eyed Scottish Duke. She’s a lady on a mission, with no time for love or dalliance.
However, fate and life have other plans and gradually Gibb and Evangeline become a couple.
As each struggles with the demons of their past, Evangeline finds life in the ton difficult. The spurned aristocrat Gibb saved her from is not prepared to give in and retire gracefully. And while Gibb fights the man, he also declares war on his emotions. When Evangeline’s past is revealed to her, everything changes. She has a decision to make. Fight for Gibb—or flee to a safe but unfulfilled future.
As for her Duke… All is fair in love and war—right?
