Miss Eliza Sheringham grew up thumbing her nose at polite English society. So when the dashing Captain Lord Marcus Wharton set his rakish sights on her, Eliza thought nothing of rejecting his advances. Then a stolen kiss changed everything. Suddenly called to battle, Marcus had to leave behind the woman who had captured his heart - and the scandal ignited by their kiss. And when he came home, he discovered that his brother's disappearance had made him Duke of Blackthorne, guardian of twin nieces. Badly scarred in the war, he was destined to spend his life hiding in Blackthorne Abbey - until Eliza Sheringham showed up on his doorstep proposing herself as governess for the twins. Marcus demanded marriage as the price of the job. He knew she could never love him. Surely his looks would drive her away - now that he hungered for her more than life itself....
