Lady Natalie Spencer has created a scandal among the ton by ending her engagement to the Duke of Cortland. However right the match might have been, she found she could not marry a man in love with another. Now she is sent to the country with strict rules on how to behave with the hope of recovering her reputation. However, Natalie now is more determined to find true love, and when her brother’s friend, Garrett Castleton, Earl of Hawthorne decides to stay with the family for a time, Natalie finds herself instantly drawn to the man. But his reputation is not above reproach and his late father’s even less so, and Natalie’s not sure if she should do as she is told or pursue her connection with Garrett and once again risk her reputation this time perhaps beyond repair.
It’s not fair. Titled rakes can practically get away with murder, but one tiny little misstep and a debutante is sent away to the country. Which is where Lady Natalie Spencer is stuck after jilting her betrothed. Frustrated with her banishment, she’s finished being a good girl and ready to be a little naughty. Luckily she has brothers, one of whom has brought home his delightfully gorgeous friend.
After recently inheriting an earldom, Garrett Castleton is determined to turn over a new leaf and shed the roguish lifestyle he adopted years ago. His friend’s sister, no matter how enticing, is out-of-bounds. He has a run-down estate to manage and tenants to save from destitution.
Can love find a compromise between the two, or will their stubbornness get them into even more trouble?
