★He needs a strong wife as a pawn to flush out a killer★
Ruby de Burgh acts more like the son her father always wanted, rather than a lady. She is not pleased to discover that her father offered Lord Sheffield – The Lord of Death – his choice of any of his daughters. What’s even more upsetting is that Lord Sheffield has chosen her!
Lord Nyle Dacre of Sheffield needs a wife so he can carry out his secret mission. After losing three wives in a matter of months, it is obvious their deaths were no accidents. He is sure they were all murdered. To catch the murderer, this time he chooses a wife as bait who he knows can wield a sword and hold her own against any attacker. Lady Ruby is just the girl he’s been looking for. But when danger stalks her, he realizes that all he wants to do is protect her.
Will murder and mayhem place a wedge between an unconventional bride and the Lord of Death? Or will emotions rising to the surface bring them closer together?
