The Duke's DisasterBook - 2015
Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he's infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea's mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?
As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn't expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?

“Your husband --" He had to start again, because something had caught in his throat. "Your husband thinks you were brave beyond telling to suffer this assault without doing violence to those who deserved your wrath. He thinks you might have lost your reason, were you a weaker person, and gone into a protracted decline. He holds your resilience, your wits, and your fortitude in highest esteem, Araminthea, and he vows to never allow another to harm you thus. Never.” (p. 374)
“What troubles your sleep? Before you prevaricate, recall that I am your husband, to whom you must transfer title to all your woes and worries." / More and more, Noah’s orders sounded like endearments. (p. 306)
