He is cold, pained and cruel…
As the second Duke, Neville Bennet has only time for duty and command. After losing his wife twenty years ago, images of her torment his mind, leaving him a former shell of himself. But now, he cares about one thing and one thing only: his daughter and her future. Until a woman—no, an enchantress, steals his heart…
She is kind, understanding and hurt…
Julia Smith, an older but still just as beautiful woman, does everything in her power to protect her son from the world’s cruelties. Focused on giving him the childhood she never had—hers was ridden with abuse, after all—her days are spent spoiling him beyond belief. Until the day, a mysterious man shakes her world and awakens the passion she wants—no, needs, to keep hidden.
Only together can they heal…
Julia and Neville make an unlikely agreement: they will connect their Houses by wedding their children.
Until the unforeseen happens: they unexpectedly and shamelessly fall in love with each other.
So why, oh why, are they so keen on denying it, despite their secret meetings? And how, oh how, will Julia manage to break Neville’s stone walls?
