An Irish rogue and an English heiress should have nothing in common. But two years after the disastrous fire that brought Lady Blanche Perceval into Michael O’Toole’s life, he is saddled with another orphan in need of a woman’s understanding.
Except the once generous Lady Blanche now despises Michael for keeping his distance when she needed him the most.
Following the fire, Blanche inherited the wealth of a dukedom, but her cousin holds the power. Forced to rely on her men of business, she is at constant odds with the new duke, who insists upon marriage for sake of the estate.
When the irresistible and unreliable Michael O’Toole re-materializes in her life to enlist her care for another orphan he’s rescued-as he once did for her-Blanche doesn’t know whether to kill him or kiss him. But when her carriage is attacked, running off with a rogue seems the wisest choice of all.
“Michael and his delicious duke’s granddaughter demonstrate why bad boys are best!”
