To the Marquess of Bromton, honor is everything. So when he discovers he’s a bastard, he attempts to manipulate a high-stakes card game to bestow his estate upon the rightful heir. But the winner demands more than Bromton bargained for—a marriage...to his scandal-ridden sister. Lady Katherine may be the least marriageable lady in all of England, but a child of their union would be a true heir. Only his wife-to-be is not at all like he expects...and she has no interest in marrying him.
Scandal has hardened Lady Katherine and narrowed her world to duty and family. There’s nothing to be trusted in the Society she left behind, especially not the imperious marquess with his single-minded pursuit. Or his knee-weakening kisses. Except, the more their connection deepens, the more Bromton surprises Katherine. But the truth about their courtship could destroy everything.
