Devoted to the Duke — The St. Clairs Book 1

After return­ing to Lon­don from his Grand Tour, seri­ous-mind­ed Jere­my St. Clair, the Mar­quess of Sather, attends a ball and meets a lumi­nes­cent beau­ty who draws him out of his shell. They share a sear­ing kiss—her first—and though he nev­er planned to wed, Jere­my desires to make this young woman his. His life takes an unex­pect­ed turn when he leaves her that night. With his father’s death, Jere­my becomes the new Duke of Ever­ton, and learns the for­mer duke has left the St. Clair fam­i­ly almost pen­ni­less. Jere­my spends five years restor­ing the fam­i­ly for­tunes, yearn­ing for the auburn-haired beau­ty who under­stood him like no oth­er before.

When she meets Lord Sather, she believes they are meant to be togeth­er. Yet her world col­laps­es that night in a hor­rif­ic car­riage acci­dent, killing her moth­er and seri­ous­ly injur­ing both Cather­ine and her father. She retreats to their coun­try estate and once healed, cares her father and moth­ers her younger sis­ter, Leah.

When Jere­my and Cather­ine meet years lat­er, the sparks are still present—though Cather­ine has recent­ly learned a dark secret about her past, mak­ing it impos­si­ble to wed Jere­my with­out ruin­ing his rep­u­ta­tion. Through a mis­un­der­stand­ing, the ton believes them to be engaged and she goes along with the engage­ment, hop­ing to find a way to break it.
