The Devil Duke
Devlin Markham, the notorious Duke of Huntington, needs a woman. And not just any woman. He needs one of the most eccentric bluestockings of the Ton, Lady Sophie Wolcott, to marry him within the month, or he can kiss his hard-earned fortune goodbye. Placing financial success above all else (love after all is a wasted emotion), he determines to have her agreement, despite the inconvenient fact she considers him a reprehensible rake, is infatuated with another man and she is quite determined never to marry.
When Sophie learns her beloved charity is in imminent danger of demolishment with its orphans thrown out onto streets, she will do anything to save them. Even if it means making a deal to marry the Devil Duke; a man who ruthlessly takes what he wants in business and pleasure. A man she should fear, but whom she reluctantly begins yearning for. Investigating the disappearance of a former orphan, Sophie becomes the target of a killer lurking from the dark shadows of Devlin’s past. A man hell-bent on revenge and destroying all the Duke dares to possess. A man intent on silencing Sophie at all costs. As murder and betrayal turn Sophie and Devlin’s engagement into a deadly game, they find themselves caught up in a torrid brew of temptation and treachery, with not only their lives in jeopardy but their very hearts.
