Emmanuelle de Maupassant writes an amazing story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This in no way affects my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily


Love is the one thing she can’t fake.

Disowned by her oil tycoon father, debutante Rosamund Burnell is in a fix.
With limited funds, and a long way from Texas, the answer seems obvious.
Pretend she’s still a wealthy catch, to ensnare an eligible English bachelor.

Meeting the Duke of Studborne, it seems her prayers have been answered.
The silver fox is in need of an heir, and soon seems besotted.

The only spanner in the works?
Her growing attraction to the duke’s very proper, very honourable and very penniless nephew, Benedict.

Rosamund tells herself she needs to think with her head, not her heart!
But the Duke’s motives for courting her are not what they seem, and Rosamund is caught in a trap.

Are the mysterious disappearances at Studborne Abbey mere coincidence?
Or does something wicked lurk within the ancient monastic walls?
Rosamund must uncover the truth, and only one person in the abbey can help her.
The annoyingly principled Benedict!Heat level : passionate
