Once he had an estate of his own, a family and a title, but all that was taken from him. He certainly has nothing to offer any woman let alone one as lovely and innocent as Miss Rachel Banford, resulting in him deciding to keep his distance from her whenever possible.
But Grayson cannot continue to maintain that distance when Rachel becomes the target of a vindictive woman’s vengeance.
