A fake engagement and plenty of charm keep the pages turning in this delightful Regency romance . . .
´Grace Burrowes is terrific!´ Julia Quinn, Sunday Times bestselling author of the Bridgerton series
´I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord.´
Miss Abigail Abbott desperately needs to disappear - permanently - and the only person she trusts to help her do that is Lord Stephen Wentworth, heir to the Duke of Walden. Stephen is brilliant, charming, and - when he needs to be - absolutely ruthless. So ruthless that he proposes marriage instead of ´murder´ to keep Abigail safe.
Stephen was smitten the instant his sister introduced him to Abigail, a woman with the dignity and determination of a duchess and the courage of a lioness. When she accepts his courtship of convenience, he also discovers she kisses like a wish come true. For Abigail, their arrangement is a sham to escape her dangerous enemies. For Stephen, it´s his one chance to share a lifetime with the lady of his dreams - if only he can convince her his love is real.
