Honoring a vow made on the battlefield, Darby Travers, Viscount Nailbourne, takes in his new ward, his late comrade’s young daughter, and the girl’s aunt, Sadie Grace Boxer, a lovely woman who is guarding a dangerous secret, in a book that also includes a bonus story, “Winter’s Camp,” by Jodi Thomas.
London’s Little Season has never been so scandalous
It’s the kind of offhand vow often made on the battlefield. Darby Travers, Viscount Nailbourne, never imagines he’ll have to honour it. Yet here she is on his doorstep–his late comrade’s young daughter, and Darby’s new ward. Worse, she comes with the most overprotective, mistrustful, bothersome chaperone–the child’s aunt, Sadie Grace Boxer. Darby is quite sure that behind her lovely facade, the woman is guarding a secret.
Sadie Grace faced all manner of trials working alongside her brother in his surgery, but none prepared her for the unfamiliar world she’s thrust into with his passing. Navigating the ton, with its endless ball gowns and parade of parties, is difficult enough, but hiding the truth about her niece while the handsome and sophisticated Viscount watches her every move proves nearly impossible–particularly when his searing gaze and daring touch tempt her to bare all. But when her family’s past catches up with her, she’ll have no choice but to trust in Darby–no matter the cost to her heart.
Includes a bonus story: “Winter’s Camp” by Jodi Thomas.
