It seems insane. Perhaps it is. But anything is better than being married to that man.
Lord Nash Fitzroy has looked after many a kidnapee over the past few years, but none make him want to break the cardinal rules as much as Grace. Her determined spirit, quick wit, and, let’s be honest, her pretty looks have him struggling to remember his role in this.
Protector, defender, and occasional shoulder to cry on.

After years of dreaming of her debut, Lilith finally entered into Society. However, Society was not ready for Lady Lilith. After stepping on too many toes, spilling wine on too many bosoms, and insulting everyone who was anyone, Lilith is ready to retire from Society altogether.
Her sister-in-law Catherine has other ideas. With a grand ball coming up, Catherine and her once-famed bluestocking sisters intend to ensure Lilith has another chance to find that elusive handsome gentleman who will sweep her off her feet.

Lilith is beginning to wonder if she does not want a simpler life—one away from Society and all its judgement. Unfortunately, a relationship between a stable-hand and a lady could never be that simple…could it?
