Description
Fans of Bridgerton will adore this charming second-chance Regency Romance that includes:
  • An anxiety-ridden duke who must marry
  • An untouchable countess determined never to love again
  • A bargain that leaves them both in danger of losing their hearts
  • With a painful history between them Michael, the Duke of Wyverne, has no idea why Caroline, Countess of Stratton, would agree to help him find a bride. As the most sought-after woman in London society, Caroline has motivations of her own.

    Brilliant but rumored mad, Michael Layward, the impoverished Duke of Wyverne, has no success courting heiresses until widowed Lady Stratton takes up his cause—after first refusing his suit.

    Caroline Graves, the popular Countess of Statton, sits alone at the pinnacle of London society and has vowed never to remarry. When Michael—her counterpart in an old scandal—returns to town after a long absence, she finds herself as enthralled with him as ever.

    As she guides the anxiety-ridden duke through the trials of London society, Caroline realizes that she's lost her heart. But if she gives herself to the only man she's ever loved, she'll lose the hard won independence she prizes above all.
