A Scandalous Connection
Might His Charade Unmask Her Heart?
"Do not come home. . .
I have a perfectly clever plan up my sleeve. . ."
Those words, penned by his sister Caroline, are precisely what prompts Demian, Duke of Darris, to ride like the devil from London back to his ancestral estate. For Caro's "plans" tend to go awry in the most creative--and unfortunate--ways. Now, with the family property in arrears, there's no telling what well-meaning mischief the minx might get up to. Demian arrives home not a moment too soon--to find his sister hosting a gaggle of well-to-do spinsters--and himself forced to pose as none other than his own butler! On the brink of engagement to a stiff-rumped society heiress, Demian can hardly afford to playact, and intends to quash Caro's harebrained scheme posthaste. That is, until he sets his eyes--and his heart--upon Miss Amy Mayhew. One glimpse of her fiery spirit and unconventional beauty is enough to make him risk both fortune and reputation. . .for a chance at her love.
