I don’t know if there will be more than three books in this series, so I add more to the list in the future. I don’t have the names for the characters yet. I’ll update the descriptions in the future.
Mr. Charles Duff was there when his friend, the Duke of Jowett, married Miss Eris Tumilson. He was also there a couple of days later when his friend was buried.
The newly widowed Duchess of Jowett has been found innocent of any crime, but Charles is convinced she poisoned his friend on her wedding night. The constable, however, doesn’t believe him.
It’s up to Charles to prove Eris did it, but there’s only one way he’s going to get close enough to her to find out the truth.
He’ll need to convince her that he’s fallen in love with her. It’s a dangerous gamble. He’ll need to keep his wits about him at all times. He can’t afford to trust her. Because if he does anything as foolish as fall for her charms, he might very well be the next one to be buried.
The hero believes he’s under a family curse and that he’ll die on his 25th birthday. With the clock ticking against him, he must marry so he can have an heir before that fateful day arrives.
The heroine seems to have a series of unfortunate accidents following her no matter where she goes. Her father believes someone is trying to kill her, so he hires the hero to watch over her.
