Can a gentle hand tame the savage beast? After a fateful meeting in Hyde Park, Violet fears she’s lost her heart to a man rumored to have disappeared. But now that he’s returned, whispers amongst Society hint that he’s grossly disfigured and fit for Bedlam. The papers have dubbed Weirick Andrews the Undesirable Duke, but Violet refuses to forget him until she sees for herself the man he’s become. As destiny would have it, she is one of the few debutantes invited to Selbourne Castle to be considered for the role of Lady Andrews, the future Duchess of Selbourne. A scarred traveling prizefighter, Weirick, the new Duke of Selbourne, intends to leave England, and all the clinging baggage it represents, behind by staging his own death.

 But before he can, Weirick must see his brother married and settled. And not just any bride will do. Only a few are invited to Selbourne Castle for his brother to choose from, wallflowers all…except one. She’s haunted his dreams for five years, but Weirick never thought he’d set eyes on Violet Everly again. He will not see her wed to his brother…but keeping her for himself would mean embracing a destiny he’s run from all his life.


My Thoughts
Lady Violet Everly has never forgotten the one fateful meeting between herself and Lord Weirick Andrews, Marquis of Denton.  After having involuntarily accosted with her errant kite.  And she can't seem to shake the feeling that he is the one for her.
Even after the passing of four seasons, his leaving the continent for parts unknown, and the threat of staunch unwillingness to marry dooming her to the "shelf" for good.

Time is known to be a healer of all wounds.  At least for some. But in the case of Weirick, now the Duke of Selbounre.  Time and a case of "fighting dirty", has served to create far more wounds than it seems can ever be mended.

Enter fate...

And the house party that brings Violet and Weirick face to face with the past they shared, and the future that they might.
If Weirick can bring himself to believe that he is more than his title and his tragedy.

This book is one for the ladies.  Meaning that it is the her in hero that gets to do all the saving.
Violet has an honesty, and "ride or die" true love for her leading man, that not even his mother can deny.
It is so much fun seeing her dismantle Weirick's defenses brick by brick.  With the help of his family, no less.
If like Foreigner you really "wanna know what love is"?  Look no further than this book.

  Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties.

 After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance.

Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content. For more information about Dayna, please visit her website, “like” Dayna on Facebook and follow her on Twitter or Instagram. Sign up for Dayna’s newsletter to be notified about upcoming releases.
