A marriage of convenience

is the only way to save her family…

Widow Sophia Seymour never planned to marry again—let alone become a duchess. But with her father missing and her family impoverished, an old betrothal contract promising her hand to a notorious duke is her only hope. And Edmund DeVane intends to honor the agreement—in name only. After all, Edmund needs a wife with an impeccable reputation to protect his debuting niece. But as their arrangement starts to feel much more real, can their budding love survive Edmund’s deepest secret?

“You have one minute to tell me why you’re here without an invitation.” He glowered, which was effective on most people who annoyed him.

He was beginning to rethink his decision to hire Mrs. Seymour as Hannah’s chaperone now that she’d presumptuously barged into his home, mother in tow. What manners would she teach his niece? The headache raged on, and he felt his scowl deepening.

“Ah yes. Certain documents have come to our attention.” Mrs. Seymour’s voice was entirely too positive. She lilted her consonants as though singing. “It seems that – ”

“Thirty seconds.”

She paused. And then said, “Very well, since you insist on brevity.”

“Ten seconds.”

Nonplussed, she smoothed an invisible wrinkle in her dress. And then she met his look with a perplexing, almost sympathetic, smile.

“In short, Your Grace, we are betrothed.”

Jessica Nelson believes romance happens every day, and thinks the greatest, most intense romance comes from a God who woos people to himself with passionate tenderness. When Jessica is not chasing her three beautiful, wild little boys around the living room, she can be found staring into space as she plots her next story. Or she might be daydreaming about a raspberry mocha from Starbucks. Or thinking about what kind of chocolate she should have for dinner that night. She could be thinking of any number of things, really. One thing is for certain, she is blessed with a wonderful family and a lovely life.
