Her Scandalous Marriage

Leslie Lafoy

St. Martin's Paperbacks

The illegitimate daughter of a decadent Lord, the lovely Caroline Dutton has worked hard to become a successful London dressmaker and is content to answer to no man. That is until a devastatingly handsome Duke walks into her shop with the most outrageous demand.
The new Duke of Ryland cursed his fate and his philandering great uncle. To collect his inheritance, he must turn the old Duke’s three by-blow offspring into proper ladies and marry them off. Two are mere children, but Caroline Dutton is all woman—a headstrong beauty he can’t help wanting to seduce.

Now ensconced in Ryland’s country estate, Caroline is being called a Lady and readied for the marriage mart during the next London season. Her dowry is large, her past overlooked, and her prospects bright... except she is breathlessly, madly drawn to the one man who is sweeping her toward scandal—and the sweet satisfaction her heart demands.

God only knew why the man climbing out of it was studying her sign, but his pinched nose and curled upper lip clearly indicated his disdain. Proving, Caroline decided, that some days were doomed from the moment you opened your eyes in the morning.
