Although Celeste Montgomery was forced into a marriage practically at gunpoint a year ago, her husband is more often gone than home and that is just fine with her. She is living a quiet life of her own choosing until investigator Owen Gregory shows up at her home to tell her some outrageous news: her husband has been murdered…and he was also a bigamist, making her the third of three wives.
Owen Gregory was hired to investigate the truth about Celeste’s husband and got caught up in the subsequent murder. He never thought it would lead him here, to this beautiful woman whose life he just shattered with a few words. Once he determines she couldn’t be the murderer, he asks her to join him in London, in the hopes she can help him solve the crime.
Now they must navigate two other wives, a broken-hearted and utterly ruined brother and a duke who keeps poking his nose in where it doesn’t belong as they work together to determine who killed Erasmus Montgomery. All the while they must contend with the intense feelings and explosive desires growing between them.
But will secrets long held endanger them in ways they never imagined? And will they find a way to save each other before it’s too late?
