He Came to Confront a Scoundrel Instead . . .
. . . He Found the Woman of His Dreams!
Journeying to the hamlet of Uckfield, Richard, Earl of Linton, was fully prepared to deliver a lashing to the audacious fortune hunters who had laid claim to the family coat of arms. But he was speechless when he discovered the interlopers were a lovely country miss and her ten-year-old brother.
Selina assumed he was there to buy some cherry trees. But her contrary heart believed she saw something more in his warm, thoughtful gaze. For Richard to reveal his real identity and purpose would surely anger a woman he seemed destined to love. And though secrets and deception lay between them, resisting this heavenly creature was a temptation no mortal man could endure.
