What kind of a marriage was this? Lady Chislaine de Launay resented having so few options in choosing a husband. She would rather join a convent than marry an arrogant and stuffy duke. Much to her shock, Guy de Courcy was anything but stuffy. In fact, he took her breath away, and Ghislaine was finding him impossible to resist. But resist him she must, for he stood accused of murder. Yet their mutual attraction was undeniable, and she found that despite the evidence mounting against him, she was beginning to believe that Guy de Courcy was an innocent man.
