Can a widow learn to trust a duke who let her think he was a smuggler?
Phoebe, Countess of Borwick, loses her family in a carriage accident and retreats to Cornwall, where she finds a smuggler who’s washed ashore, blood leaking from a bullet wound.
Andrew, Duke of Windham, was shot by his greedy half-brother, and soon falls in love with the widow who nurses him back to health. Before he can ask for her hand, she disappears—and he has no way to find her—until he spies her in a London ballroom months later.
What will Phoebe do when she learns that her Mr. Andrew is none other than the famous Duke of Renown?
