New York Times bestselling author Mary Jo Putney
continues her stunning Lost Lords series with this
stirring, sensual story of a rebellious nobleman drawn to a lovely
widow with a shocking past.
As the sole remaining heir to the Earl of Daventry, Alexander
Randall knows his duty: find a wife and sire a son of his own. The
perfect bride for a man in his position would be a biddable young
girl of good breeding. But the woman who haunts his imagination is
Julia Bancroft --- a village midwife with a dark secret that
thrusts her into Randall’s protection.
Within the space of a day, Julia has been abducted by her first
husband’s cronies, rescued, and proposed to by a man she
scarcely knows. Stranger still is her urge to say yes. A union with
Alexander Randall could benefit them both, but Julia doubts she can
ever trust her heart again, or the fervent desire Randall ignites.
Yet perhaps only a Lost Lord can show a woman like Julia everything
a true marriage can be…
