The Lady's Devil
Book 2: The Lady Bachelorettes
Unlike her stepmother, Lady Dharma Dexter totally believes in love. She knows all Lord Byron’s poems by heart and is waiting for the day when the man of her dreams woos her with sonnets. At her stepmother’s bachelorette house party she meets the obnoxious yet stunningly handsome Warwick Sneddon, the Marquis of Devlin, a man who is there because he needs a large dowry. For some reason, he ignores her stepmother and sets his sights on her. Dharma has a very large dowry but she is not giving it to any man until he wins her heart. She is not marrying for duty, or for a title. She wants love and she’s sure Devil as he is known, does not have a heart.
Lord Devlin’s father left the family estates in ruins, and when Devil, as he is known to his friends, came into his title six months ago, his mother begged him to marry quickly, and marry well. His family’s lineage is second to none. They can trace their peerage back to King Henry the VIII, their estates are vast and with money he could turn the family fortunes around. He’s not bad in the looks department, and plenty of rich debutantes are throwing themselves at his feet. Yet, he cannot bring himself to wed any of them—until he meets the very spoilt Lady Dharma. She’s beautiful beyond words, clever, self-assured, and would make him a fine Countess—except she demands the one thing he refuses to give—his heart.
