In a time of arranged marriages when women have few options, Isobel fell in love. Will the sins from the Duke’s past rise up and ruin their happiness?
The Duke of Toomscomb was in a carriage accident and his body is broken as well as his soul. He shouldn’t have been racing but he gave in to a moment of weakness. Not only is he badly injured but his fiancée died in the accident. The guilt is more than he can bear. No one is willing to care for him because his demands are great and his complaints are greater. He’s a heartless cad with a vile temper, and everyone finds him terrifying.
Isobel is the only one who can help, yet she has her own troubles. She and her siblings have fallen on hard times. Their parents are on an overseas voyage with no contact in months. There is only one person who can prevent their starvation. After seeking the Lord’s direction, Isobel goes to the Duke of Toomscomb to beg for food. She gets much more than she expected.
As his new nurse, Isobel finds herself drawn to the hurting man, and the Duke responds to no one but her. He becomes dependent on her, yet he’s demanding and harsh. Through her gentleness, she reaches past the gruff exterior to his inner man. She risks both her heart and her reputation to touch his life. She knows he may discard her once he’s well. Will he turn to the Lord before he breaks her heart?
