Lady Fiona Turnbridge is a fair, green-eyed beauty with a soft spot for injured animals—which is how she arrived on the doorstep of the tall, dark, and handsome Lord Ian Cabott, Duke of Dunsford, at midnight with an injured cat in one hand…and a pistol in her other. 
Ian, a former military surgeon with a cool demeanor yet uncommon good sense, is willing to help a damsel in distress—no matter how unladylike her behavior. Still, he has needs, too…and, in exchange for his efforts, he could use Fiona’s assistance with the young ward in his care.

About the Author

Leslie LaFoy

LESLIE LaFOY grew up loving to read and living to write. (This was a significant factor in her becoming the unofficial poster child of over-education. In the Liberal Arts no less.) After teaching high school history for many years, she focused her creative energies on her life-long dream of writing full time. When not made completely oblivious to reality by her current work in progress, she dabbles in every handicraft known to womankind and, twice a week and ever other weekend, dons her cape to be Hockey Team Mom.
