After a whirlwind courtship and elopement, Lady Alexandra Marshall watched helplessly as her husband was shipped off by her irate father. An annulment followed, and though Alexandra waited with packed bags, Christopher never returned for her. She has tried desperately to forget the only love she's ever known and now devotes herself to the British Museum...until she discovers that someone has pilfered a fortune in jewels.
His scandalous marriage to Alex had hardened Sir Christopher Donally against the aristocracy that labeled a man's worth by the titles he carried rather than by his deeds. Now with a new bride in his future and a sister who is about to enter Society, Christopher is determined to put the past behind him. But when Alex asks for his help in finding a thief, he agrees, in exchange for her support in launching his sister. Though running into Alex was not planned, nor his emotional reaction welcomed, he can't help but be undone by one single, soul-stirring kiss.
In this brilliant follow-up to her Avon debut, Melody Thomas captivates us again with a rich and emotionally satisfying "marriage of convenience" story that will delight fans of Judith McNaught.
Michael Fallon is the third son of a Duke, and when the love of his life was betrothed to his older brother, Michael left England to serve in the military. Now he's a captain stationed in Cairo, and he inadvertently rescues Brianna Donally from the deserts.
Michael is the most exciting man Brea has ever known, and the attraction between them is undeniable. A "modern" woman, she sees nothing wrong in initiating an affair, but when Michael unexpectedly inherits the family dukedom, the marriage of convenience Michael proposes is anything but, and Brianna suddenly finds herself falling in love with a man she vowed never to trust with her heart.
