"Ambitious, sly, and lethally intelligent, Gideon Hawthorne has spent his life clawing his way up from the gutter. For the last ten years, he's acted as the Duke of Windemere's fixer, performing the duke's dirty work without question. Now Gideon's ready to quit the duke's service and work solely for himself. But Windermere tempts Gideon with an irresistible offer: one last task for Messalina Greycourt's hand in marriage. Witty, vivacious Messalina Greycourt has her pick of suitors, so when her uncle demands Messalina marry Mr. Hawthorne, she is appalled. But Gideon offers her a devil's bargain of his own: protection and freedom in exchange for a true marriage. Messalina feigns agreement and plots to escape their deal. Only the more time she spends with Gideon, the more her fierce, loyal husband arouses her affections. But will Gideon's final deed for Windemere destroy the love growing between them?"-- Publisher's description.

*Starred Review* After more than a decade spent working for the duke of Windemere, Gideon Hawthorne had every intention of leaving the duke's employ when the viperous and vindictive nobleman makes Gideon an offer he can't refuse. In exchange for successfully completing one final task, the duke will arrange for Gideon to marry his niece, Messalina Greycourt. While he would welcome her considerable dowry, the real reason gutter-born Gideon wants to wed Messalina is that she can provide him with the entrée to upper society Gideon needs for his business concerns to flourish. By accepting the duke's offer, Gideon knows that he is making a deal with the devil. What is even more troubling is that if Messalina ever finds out exactly what he has promised to do, Gideon is certain there will be hell to pay. No one captures moments of heartbreak and hope in a relationship as exquisitely as Hoyt does, and the latest danger-infused, wryly witty addition to her exemplary Georgian-set Greycourt series, following Not the Duke's Darling (2018), offers another master class in forward sensuality and fierce romanticism.
