“Smart and witty . . . the perfect historical read.” —Julia Quinn, #1 New York Times bestselling author

It’s challenging for a widow, especially one who’s fallen from grace, to find true love again—or perhaps for the very first time. 

When headstrong West Indian heiress Patience Jordan questioned her English husband's mysterious suicide, she lost everything—most devastatingly, her newborn son, Lionel. Falsely persecuted, she risks her life to be near him, disguising herself in order to be hired as her own son’s nanny. But working for his unsuspecting new guardian, Busick Strathmore, Duke of Repington, has perils of its own. Especially when Patience discovers his strictness belies an ex-rake of unswerving honor—and unexpected passion . . .
A wounded military hero, Repington is determined to resolve his dead cousin’s dangerous financial dealings for Lionel’s sake. But that’s a minor skirmish compared to dealing with the forthright, courageous, and alluring Patience. Somehow, she's breaking his rules, and sweeping past his defenses. Soon, between enemies and obstacles, they form a fragile trust—but will it be enough to save the future they long to dare together?
