Lucinda Brant's sweeping family sagas are a perfect reminder of why I fell in love with historical romance — Cheryl Bolen, NY Times bestselling author
Two noble teenagers are married against their will.
Drugged, Deb has no recollection of events.
Disgraced, Julian is banished to the Continent.
Years later, Deb falls in love with a wounded duelist,
only to discover it is her husband returned incognito!
Can Deb forgive his calculated deception?
Will their marriage survive beyond seduction?
Set in the opulent world of the aristocracy and inspired by real events, Lucinda Brant delivers another lavish 18th century experience in her trademark style — heart-wrenching drama with a happily ever after.
