A tradesman’s daughter battles with an impoverished aristocrat.
A kiss never forgotten . . .
Known for his roguish behavior, Grayson Brentford, the Marquess of Harberton, overhears a young woman being cruelly jilted at a ball, so he gives her a kiss to boost her moral. But it’s a kiss that haunts him, ruining all his romantic trysts ever since. Now seven years later, Gray’s inherited a near-bankrupt title, and only marriage to an extremely wealthy heiress can save the estate. He’s willing to bite the bullet, and fortunately, an heiress whose fortune is large enough is in Town. Then he realizes the cotton mill owner, Miss Sophia Wyndham, is the mysterious young woman of years back whose kiss has rocked his world.
As the sole operator of her family’s cotton mill, Miss Sophia Wyndham has learned her lesson well—never trust a nobleman. She refuses to have anything to do with the Marquess of Harberton, who has admitted he must marry for money. He insists they are a perfect match, reminding her of a kiss she’s never forgotten. Despite her adamant refusal of his suit, his honest persistence touches a cord, and her heart softens toward him.
Amid the backdrop of rioting Luddites and attempts to kidnap her, Sophia finds herself relying on the comfort and support of Gray’s broad shoulders. Yet, despite her growing attraction for him, she cannot dismiss the fact that the beau monde will never accept a savvy business woman, no matter who the impoverished the aristocrat is.
Can he convince her otherwise?
