At nineteen Mary Jocelyn Garnett was hardly desperate for a husband. However, to save her life, Jocelyn did what she must. She married Reynolds Blackburn - without his knowledge- knowing that the deal would be short-lived. And all went well, until the Duke of Wilcott returned to find he was no longer the king of bachelors.
As long as the marriage was never consummated, Jocelyn knew, it could be annulled - just as soon as she avenged her family and reacquired her birthright. Unfortunately, her blasted husband appeared to be attracted to her! Worse, Reyn was handsome and clever, and she feared her husband might assume that she was one of many women who were simply after his title. After one breathless kiss, however, Jocelyn swore that she would not be duchess for a day, but Reyn's for a lifetime.
