Tristan Townsend has come home to London to assume his duties as the Marquis of Lockwood after all the men in his family have died. Desperate to rid himself of the “Lockwood curse” and restore his family’s honor, marriage is the furthest thing from Tristan’s mind…until he lays eyes on an enchanting stranger and vows to make her his…

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 and Lacrosse Mom.
