Description

A New York Times and USA Today bestseller from Grace Burrowes's lush Regency series, featuring the beloved Windham family and a duke obsessed with getting his sons married...

A weary soldier home from war
A beautiful neighbor who could be his salvation

Even in the quiet countryside, Devlin St. Just, the oldest but illegitimate son of the Duke of Moreland, can find no peace. His idyllic estate is falling down from neglect and nightmares of war give him no rest. Then Devlin meets his new neighbor...

With her confident manner, the lovely Emmaline Farnum commands all of Devlin's attention, even when he realizes the previous owner's five-year-old daughter has become a nearly feral fixture on his property. Calling on Emmaline to become the girl's governess, he soon learns that she can nurture him too, in ways no other woman ever has before...
