The controlling old duke’s last wishes.
The mysterious new duke’s first demands.
And I'm the headstrong new duchess who’s caught between them.
From an American billionaire’s daughter, to almost a duchess, to actually a duchess…it’s been a strange 24 hours.
Our plan was simple, if not scandalous. Me, the 29-year-old daughter of an American billionaire, marrying him, the ancient Duke of Manly on his hundredth birthday. But then, neither of us has ever been conventional. We were each going to get something we desperately desired out of the marriage. For me, it wasn't money. And it certainly wasn't sex. The plan was working so well. Until Manly dies at the altar before saying "I do." With his dying breath, Manly maneuvers me into a marriage of convenience with his hot, mysterious heir, Ren Sattler, the new duke. Suddenly I'm drawn into the mysteries surrounding the castle and Ren—mysteries that threaten my hopes of saving the estate and my marriage…not to mention my heart.
