Major, Lord Ralph Duval, is recuperating from a saber wound that almost killed him. When her carriage breaks an axle in the snow she is obliged to take refuge at the house she believes is called Devil’s Gate.
Will Ralph be able to keep her safe or is he the biggest danger to her?
Their wedding was the event of the season… A shy wallflower, Caroline hasn’t the faintest idea why the Duke of Readington chose her to be his bride. She could ask, but that would mean speaking to him…and truth be told she’d rather have a conversation with the devil. Her new husband may be one of the most powerful men in all of England – not to mention the handsomest – but he’s also cruel, callous, and has a heart colder than ice.
But it was never meant to be a love match… Eric married Caroline for one simple reason: he wasn’t in love with her. Having seen firsthand how love can bring a man to his knees, he’s determined not to make the same mistakes his father did. Which is why he’s going to spend just enough time with his new bride to assure himself of an heir before he leaves her and returns to London. At least that was the plan until a winter storm leaves them stranded. Now every time Eric turns around he finds himself stumbling over the wife he never wanted…but is slowly beginning to desire.
….or was it? As cold winds howl outside the manor, inside of it a duke’s heart is finally starting to melt as he finds himself falling for the one woman he was never supposed to love…but can she love him in return?
