If I never see Kristoff Wellesley alive again, it will be too soon!
He insinuated himself into our family before anyone noticed. He aided my brother, Whitcomb, to enter the British Navy. Then he charmed my mama and my sisters with his noble manners and dubious aplomb.
But I know the truth. He is charlatan and a lying, scheming rake! He thinks he has pulled the wool over my eyes. Yet I am the sheep bearing a gift. Now that he is a Duke, he believes he is untouchable. But I have discovered he used my family to gain title and advantage, destroying my mother's happiness and preventing my brother from returning home.
I won't let him get away with it. I will repay him the pain and suffering he caused me and my family - but not before I grant him the greatest pleasure he has ever known. We are married, and I have waited an eternity for tonight.
I have heard revenge is a dish best served cold. And I plan to give the Duke his recompense that will chill even the darkest corners of Newgate. I will not rest until I destroy the Duke, and I have saved his best surprise for last!
