“Exquisitely crafted, intensely memorable romance.”—Library Journal, STARRED Review
Between his high-handedness and her pride, what could possibly go wrong?
Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, proposes to prim Lady Thea Collins because he refuses to waste time on courtship nonsense and Lady Thea should make a good, obedient duchess. Noah prides himself on his practicality, so he’s dismayed when his engagement to Lady Thea embroils him in nothing but trouble. Is he courting a duchess of convenience or a ducal disaster?
Lady Thea has fallen on hard times, and accepts His Grace’s proposal because he shows every indication of being a distant and manageable husband. When the duke intrudes into every aspect of Thea’s life, and adds humor, tenderness and passionate kisses to their bargain, Thea must take His Grace firmly in hand.

About the Author
Grace Burrowes, I started writing as an antidote to empty nest and soon found it an antidote to life in general. I am the sixth out of seven children, and was raised in the rural surrounds of central Pennsylvania. Early in life I spent a lot of time reading romance novels and practicing the piano. My first career was as a technical writer and editor in the Washington, DC, area, a busy profession that nonetheless left enough time to read a lot of romance novels.
It also left enough time to grab a law degree through an evening program, produce Beloved Offspring (only one, but she is a lion), and eventually move to the lovely Maryland countryside.
While reading yet still more romance novels (there is a trend here) I opened a law practice, acquired a master’s degree in Conflict Transformation (I had a teenage daughter by then) and started thinking about writing…. romance novels. This aim was realized when Beloved Offspring struck out into the Big World. (“Mom, why doesn’t anybody tell you being a grown-up is hard?”)
I eventually got up the courage to start pitching manuscripts to agents and editors. The query letter that resulted in “the call” started out: “I am the buffoon in the bar at the writer’s retreat who could not keep her heroines straight, could not look you in the eye, and could not stop blushing–and if that doesn’t narrow down the possibilities, your job is even harder than I thought.” (The dear lady bought the book anyway.)
