Vivian will become his duchess and he will do everything in his and the agency's power to protect her.
Can a marriage of convenience turn into the love of a lifetime?
I loved this story and can't wait for the rest of the series! Monroe is masterful at weaving in a convincing mystery within the love story.
I just love when you have some straight-laced or never-do-good lord that ends up being a spy and is just hiding his true personality! It is rarer to have the spy be the heroine of the story, but I think the other stories in this series will have a few and I can't wait!
