When his past comes back to haunt him, it will take all his powers of persuasion to convince Thea he is worthy of her love.
The duke has a secret – one that Thea thinks she could never forgive and sends her racing for home. To find redemption and win her back, Christian must realize mistakes can’t be ignored forever.
The secrets you keep can change your life forever.

Unfortunately, mail is slow during a war. She thought he knew everything. He had never suspected.
Thomas has always wanted to be a part of the Belling’s family but he was too foolish to grab the chance when she threw herself at him before. Instead, he ran off to war. Emboldened by his new-found appreciation for a grown-up Francesca, he finds that dream is within his reach.
If she thinks he’s running away this time, she has no idea what she’s in for.
