Chloe de Montesse dreamed about returning home to a peaceful life. But now she has an inconvenient marriage no one wants to let her end, a
diplomatic scandal to navigate, and old troubles swirling around her. As well as trying to determine who might want her dead. And that’s just the
beginning. Lucien de Roche has avoided marriage for years because his heart belonged to a woman he could never have. Now he has her, but he knows
he’ll have to let her go again because their marriage is a sham. So he still can’t tell her the truth. But he will do everything in his power to keep her safe.
