Lady Dorcas Dersingham is developing the rare and lovely yellow rose. Grant, the Duke of Blackridge, develops coal mines. Beauty meets Beast.

Oblivious to the beauty of nature, Grant is the last person Dorcas should care for. He’s a giant of a man and speaks his mind with blunt force. But she can’t stop wanting him. When Grant damages her precious yellow rose, she spurns his courtship.
Once he sees the spitfire lurking behind her shy exterior, Grant wants Dorcas more than ever. But somebody doesn’t want them together. Somebody wants them dead.

Grant follows Dorcas to the country and watches over her from a distance, disguised as the manager of his new coal mine. But Dorcas soon unearths his secret. Once she reveals the passionate woman she really is, he wants her more than ever.
Dorcas can no longer deny that she loves her Beast. But as they are coming to a new understanding, a disaster forces her to take life-changing decisions.

If they don’t trap the person trying to kill them, they won’t get their happy ever after.

About the Author
Lynne Connolly

I write stories, and I always have. And I love a happy ending, especially a well-deserved one.

I’m an award-winning, best-selling author of historical romance. I fell in love with the eighteenth century when I was nine years old, and it’s my dream job to write about the people who lived and loved back then.

I used to work in marketing, and I have more letters after my name than in it, but I don’t use them much anymore.

I live in the UK with my family, including my muse, Frankie the Nonsense, a ragdoll with no decorum. I love traveling, and I get over to the States at least once a year.
