In Lauren Smith’s latest novel, a devilish duke gets more than he bargained for when he kidnaps intelligent, free-spirited Emily Parr.
For too long Miss Emily
Parr has been subject to the whims of her indebted uncle and the lecherous
advances of his repulsive business partner. Her plan to be done with dominating
men forever is simple: find herself a kind husband who will leave her to her
It seems an easy enough
plan, until she is unexpectedly abducted by an incorrigible duke who hides a
wounded spirit behind flashing green eyes.
Godric St. Laurent, Duke
of Essex, spends countless nights at the club with his four best friends and
relishes the rakish reputation society has branded him with. He has no plans to
marry anytime soon—if ever. But when he kidnaps an embezzler’s niece, the
difficult debutante’s blend of sweetness and sharp tongue makes him desperate
for the one thing he swears he never wanted: love.
Yet as they surrender to
passion, danger lurks in Godric’s shadowed past, waiting for him to drop his
guard—and to rob him of the woman he can’t live without. Download and start listening now!
