“I read it in one sitting – and now I’m going to read it again slowly and savour each vivid description and enjoy the carefully constructed tension. Leigh D’Ansey displays her mastery of words in both dialogue and pace. Not my usual genre but I truly enjoyed this romantic Regency romp.” Deryn Pittar – five star review.

Vanessa Fitzwilliam is in dire straits. Her father’s death a year before has left her with a crumbling manor house and a handful of old retainers who are relying on her for support. When the Most Noble Hugo Ashton, Duke of Northbridge sweeps into her life and proposes a marriage of convenience, Vanessa is tempted—but the Duke believes her to be something she is not!

Hardened by the ravages of war, Northbridge seeks a wife who will provide him with an heir but make no demands on his emotions. The scandalously experienced Vanessa, neither clinging nor innocent, seems the perfect choice. But Northbridge isn’t prepared for her reluctance to accept him, nor his own fierce reaction to her beauty. To fulfil his desires, he is prepared to be ruthless, but can he bend Vanessa to his will? Or has the Duke met his match?!

Kate Summers has worked hard to create the life she wants, and knows exactly the kind of man she needs: someone compliant, steady and calm. A man who won’t rock her boat. When Nathan Kincaid strides back into her life bringing nothing but bitter memories and unsettling reminders of her fractured past, Kate knows he is definitely not a contender!

Nathan Kincaid is not interested in marriage—he’s been there, done that. Carrying the burden of his brother’s death and the breakdown of his family, the last thing Nathan needs is a pocket dynamo from the past complicating his life. Finding his hot new colleague sprawled half-naked across his desk on a hot summer’s night when all he craves is peace and solitude is not something he bargained for.

But Nathan and Kate are irresistibly drawn to each other. Can they mend old wounds? Can they overcome the barriers that keep them apart, learn to trust each other, and forge a whole new relationship?
