Francine Larrabee is headed to a presentation that she’s sure will change her life when she’s in a car accident. When she awakens she’s a woman with no name and no home in Northern England, near the Scottish border, the year of Our Lord… 1880.
Catapulted into a world that threatens her life, she’s controlled by a man who may destroy her heart. Isolated without so much as a glimmer of the world she’s familiar with she must survive amidst the sudden danger, violence, and passion.
Francine learns her only chance of safety lies in Gideon Trumbull, a lionhearted—but evasive—duke. What begins as a compulsion to learn anything about him becomes an urgent need to know everything about him, and Francine finds herself in an inescapable new reality, a world in which she doesn’t belong but feel more like home than anything ever has.
Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident, finding a runaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London. His brother will kill him if something happens to one of his staff—the something being the rakish brother Perry, of course.
But his stowaway, Lilly, has another idea. She plans on seducing this rake who refuses to touch her. It seems like just the right challenge to sooth her damaged soul.
Two complete love stories in one beautiful book.

It's not love.
It's a marriage of Kink-venience.
Grayson Danforth, Duke of Warrick, was banished from England by his father when his propensity for pain was discovered. The only reason he returned was because his father and two older brothers were killed, requiring him to take up the title. His honor has him bound to the contracts meant for his brother—including a marriage—but first he has to meet his bride.
Lulu—a professional dominatrix—was in a scene with a client when she tripped and fell, waking up in a strange house in a strange world with no idea what to think. She’s either part of an elaborate scene for another client or it’s all just a dream. But the man she woke up to…he makes her want to live in the dream forever. When she's given the choice to run and hide or complete the contract for marriage to Warrick, she chooses the latter. She can’t help the way she’s drawn to this beautiful, powerful, man and the secrets she can see he's hiding beneath his cross façade.
Warrick knows Lulu’s secret—even if she doesn’t believe it—and he knows that marrying her will be the best way to keep her safe. But Lulu stirs something deep inside that he’s worked for years to hide. When Lulu realizes his masochistic tendencies it's up to her to force him to let down his domineering guard and submit. He needs to learn that what he wants, what he yearns for is not only beautiful but something she can give him but getting him to submit is a task that won't come easily to either of them.
As they begin their dance of husband and wife can two people who’ve never known trust or love learn to submit to each other?
