In this second prequel novella to the bestselling series,
New York Times bestselling author Grace Burrowes
continues the story of the Duke and Duchess of Moreland
through the tumultuous and bittersweet first years of
marriage and parenthood.
Percival Windham is a
second son and cavalry officer when he weds the beautiful
Esther Himmelfarb, who bears her beloved husband four sons
in little over five years of marriage. She's exhausted and
emotional when suddenly his older brother dies, and Percy
becomes, reluctantly, the Duke of Moreland. It's a role that
doesn't fit him well at all. Esther and the children join
him when he's called to London, where she finds her husband
is at Court much of the time, the children hate being cooped
up in the townhouse, and her health is not improving.
On top of all that, Esther is accosted by one of
Percival's former mistresses. The woman is desperate, and
towing around a little boy whom Esther recognizes as
Percival's son. While riding in the park, Percival is
accosted by another former amour who claims to be raising
Percival's daughter. Now that he's a Duke, the women want
Percival's innocent illegitimate
children and their respective mothers' demands will test the
mettle of the Duke and Duchess, and they must grow into the
level of nobility they've been resisting and stand together,
or face the threat of becoming estranged and destroying
their young family and the beautiful love that started out
with such promise...
