The Ministry of Marriage

Christina Brooke

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Lady Cecily Westruther is nothing if not practical. By agreeing to marry an older duke who already has an heir and a mistress, she can assume a wifely role—without the wifely duties.

But Rand holds a secret more shocking and destructive than that letter could ever be…
