A Duke by DefaulteBook - 2009
Marc Rothwell's cousin should have been the next Duke of Broadstairs but died before he could assume the title. With the utmost reluctance, Marc takes his place and sets about finding a suitable wife in order to produce an heir. Caught in a compromising position with Miss Harriet Aston, Marc proposes to possibly the only woman in England with no interest in becoming a duchess. Marc soon discovers that Harriet will be anything other than a biddable wife. She appears determined to make him fall in love with her, even though he makes it perfectly clear that theirs will be a marriage of convenience. In spite of his efforts to keep her safe, Harriet is brutally attacked. Before he can unearth the identities of those seeking to undermine his position, Marc is horrified when Harriet recklessly throws herself in the path of danger for a second time in an effort to protect him. Can Marc ensure the safety of his willfully disobedient wife before his enemies strike again...
