A USA Today Bestseller
Baldwin Undercross, Duke of Sheffield, has a secret he’s keeping from almost everyone he knows and loves. He is destitute, thanks to gambling by his late father that was multiplied by his own bad decisions. There is only one option now: marry for money and do it soon. An opportunity presents itself when a rich American woman arrives in Society hunting for a title in trade for a huge dowry.
After a scandal destroyed her life back home, Helena Monroe is the companion to her spoiled, entitled cousin. She has trailed after her to England and she is miserable. But once she encounters Baldwin on a terrace, her time in London starts to look up. She and the duke share a flirtatious moment that gives her the first bright spot in her life for years. However, she quickly realizes he believes she is her cousin and everything starts to fall apart.
Baldwin is now torn between a future that will save his family legacy and one with a woman he is growing increasingly attached to. Will he choose safety or passion, obligation or love?
