No one said he had to be nice to the woman who had singlehandedly destroyed his hopes of ever securing the dukedom from his much older and far too boring cousin, John Pettygrove, Duke of Snowley. But Barrington Chapple, Marquess of Ryde, has never accepted defeat, whether it is on the battlefield, at the card table, or in the bedroom. Will he find a way to win the prize he seeks...and maybe the one he comes to crave?
The gods must hate her! Charlotte had never set her cap at any man, like her three younger sisters had done, and what had it gotten her? An arranged marriage to a man more than twice her age and a title she could live without. But as the oldest and still unmarried daughter of Nigel Hawthorne, she had little choice in the matter. Still, what could be worse than marrying an older man to whom one is not in the least attracted? How about falling in love with his cousin and heir?
