The best laid plans…
The unexpected homecoming of Lord Zeke Thurgood, grandson and heir
to the Earl of Claybourne, casts Lady Kitty Hasting’s brilliant plan to hide as the earl’s boy servant into utter chaos.
Magnificent, maddening Zeke.
Kitty’s best efforts to act the model servant can’t stop the man’s faultfinding.
Zeke can’t put his finger on what about the lad irks him—until his grousing leads her nemesis-guardian straight to their door, and he witnesses Kitty’s unveiling. Then the earl announces Zeke and Kitty’s fake engagement, and his shock is complete.
Faking an engagement is a slippery slope…
Emphasis on fake. Zeke’s plans don’t include staying in England, much less marriage, and Kitty’s dead-set against marrying a man who does not like her, much less love her.
When a new and unforeseen danger threatens to take Kitty from him forever, however, Zeke can no longer deny the truth: Kitty’s irresistible mix of courage, determination, and charm make her his perfect match.
With the clock ticking, he’ll convince her he’s the only man for her, or lose the best thing that ever happened to him.
