Rowan Scott, the Laird of Garrison wasn’t in the market for a wife, but when he received a summons from the widow of a man he’d long admired, he wasn’t about to deny her. If nothing else, he owed it to the colonel’s memory. However, when he made the journey from Scotland to London, he hadn’t been prepared for the gaming hell owner and matchmaker to approach him with a proposition. He considered leaving right then, but he wondered if it was time to put the ghosts of his past to rest and listen to what she had to say.
Miss Beatrice Bookbinder was a woman long past the blush of youth. She had devoted her life to taking care of her ailing father while dealing with a stepfamily who cared nothing for her. On the heels of a devastating loss, Beatrice is sent to a private asylum by her stepbrother who is determined to get rid of her. She feels as though her fate is sealed, until Mrs. Dove-Lyon offers her a choice—continue the path that has been set before her or embark on a marriage to a complete stranger.
She chooses the latter, not knowing that it might just be the best thing that has ever happened to her.
