|General Note:||Includes an excerpt from: Tremaine's true love (pages -439).|
|Summary, etc.:||"Between his high-handedness, her pride, and both of their bruised and tender hearts, what else could possibly go wrong? Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, proposes to prim Lady Thea Collins because he's loath to waste time on courtship nonsense and Lady Thea should make a biddable duchess. Noah prides himself on his practicality, so he's dismayed when his engagement to Lady Thea embroils him in nothing but trouble. Is he courting a duchess of convenience or a ducal disaster? Lady Thea has fallen on hard times, and accepts His Grace's proposal because he shows every indication of being a distant and manageable husband. When the duke intrudes into every aspect of Thea's life, and adds humor, tenderness, and passionate kisses to their bargain, Thea must take His Grace firmly in hand"--Page  of cover.|

Ever-popular and versatile Burrowes alternates between contemporary (Kiss Me Hello, 2015) and historical (The Laird, 2014) romances. In her latest love story, set in the past, Noah, Duke of Anselm, loses his bid to marry a wealthy heiress, so he approaches her companion, Lady Araminthea, called Thea, and proposes. They marry and he then learns that Thea had a difficult past. In fact, she still has nightmares about the time her domestic employment left her defenseless. Noah can't get past his hurt over her lack of trust in him until he begins to admire her intelligence and kindness. He is used to taking care of others and enjoys the novelty of someone who looks after him. When family and friends begin to hear rumors about her past, and her reputation, the couple work together to defend their union. Burrowes' experience as a family attorney makes her depiction of a rape victim and a no-doubt common crime against vulnerable domestic workers utterly believable, while the gradually growing closeness between Thea and Noah is a delightful courtship to experience.
