“Putney’s endearing characters and warm-hearted stories never fail to inspire and delight.” —Sabrina Jeffries

Some Bargains Are Made to Be Broken…

Forced to wed to keep her inheritance, independent Lady Jocelyn Kendal finds an outrageous solution: she proposes marriage to Major David Lancaster, an officer dying from his Waterloo wounds. In return for making her his wife, she will provide for his governess sister. But after the bargain is struck and the marriage is made, the major makes a shocking, miraculous recovery. Though they agree to an annulment, such matters take time…time enough for David to realize he is irrevocably in love with his wife.

Haunted by her past, Jocelyn refuses to trust the desire David ignites in her. She never counted on a real husband, least of all one who would entice her to be a real wife.…

Includes a brand new epilogue!

“Delightful…a perfect escape.” —Baton Rouge Morning Advocate
