Miss Margaret MacGregor has a secret.
To protect her family, she has done the darkest of deeds, and now she is determined to find the protection of a good marriage. A marriage that will let her pursue her dreams. A powerful friend has arranged for her to marry the Earl of Derby. But when she arrives, the earl does nothing as expected. He demands a trial. Drawn to the Earl, who seems to carry a shadow in his heart, she agrees. Margaret cannot deny her desire for him, but if he learns the truth, will he cast her out? When her heart begins to long for him, she is determined to keep him… and her secrets.
The Earl of Derby needs a governess, not a wife. Except no governess has been able to manage his spirited sons! When Margaret arrives on his doorstep, eyes flashing and a wild plan in hand, he cannot resist her. To his amazement, her remarkable ways beguile him and his small sons in a way he never thought possible. But there is a wall around his heart that almost matches his highland lass’. Will she ever trust him enough to tell him why she has terrifying nightmares? Or will they both keep to the fortresses of their hearts… alone without love in a marriage of convenience?
From USA Today bestselling author Eva Devon, writing as Máire Claremont, comes a brand-new series that will sweep you away to the drama and angst of Regency England. Glittering ballrooms, wild moors, and brooding lords await…
