Grayson Maxwell never expected to be a duke. He’s happy as a second son to manage his father’s estates and wed Miss Henriette Blakely, a feisty tradesman’s daughter with a talent for designing gowns. But when the worst happens, and Grayson the spare becomes the heir to the Duke of Devonmere, new and powerful obligations shatter his plans. After all… Dukes don’t marry dressmakers. Henrietta Blakely has quite forgotten the floppy haired former love of her life. She never even thinks about Grayson Maxwell. She certainly never dreams of his touch or the way he used to look at her like she was the only woman in the world. She’s much too busy wooing the wealthiest clientele of the haute ton to her London dress shop. When she arrives at a country house party to court the fashionably-gowned guests, she runs into her past instead, and his shoulders are wider than ever, his eyes just as devouring. And he’s asking for a second chance… But dressmakers don’t flirt with future dukes. One glimpse of Henrietta and Grayson knows what he always has—he wants her back. Can he convince her to give in to her secret desires and take a second chance at love?
Jude Collymore wasn’t a player. He played drums, but he never played games—especially with women. Which is why the broody rock star made it clear he had no interest in long-term commitments. It wasn’t his fault he had women falling all over him despite that. It was a consequence of both the rock star lifestyle and the fact he knew exactly what he was doing in the bedroom. As far as Jude was concerned, with his band and a steady stream of admirers, he had it made. But that soon changed when bandmate and best friend, Levi, received some life-changing information that could disrupt the band’s current tour. Offering his support immediately, Jude very quickly found himself tested with a connection he found impossible to ignore. Esther Milligan should never have been on his radar, and although he fought their attraction the pull toward her was strong. Add to that a stupid challenge that became a bizarre, forbidden relationship and suddenly his single, carefree status was under question and the consequences were career ending. Now, Jude has to decide where his loyalties lie and where his heart belongs…
