​Lord Trey Worthington isn’t about to give his heart to a woman. He does not want a marriage like his parents. But when his mother brings in a childhood acquaintance into the home to sponsor into society, Trey has to get Miss Faraday trained properly. The more he gets to know Judith, the more he yearns for something he doesn’t dare reach for. Judith is after a faithful husband—something Trey has been convinced most of his life he’ll never become.

Judith Faraday is only after one thing—to marry her Naval Officer and enjoy a life full of love. She’s doubtful her dream will ever come true while living as the ward to the dowager duchess. However, the longer Judith is with the dowager’s son, Trey, an attraction blossoms. Judith now wonders if God has different plans for her life, because Trey doesn’t believe in the sanctity of marriage . . . the very thing Judith cannot do without.


Melinda Stewart was far from being a debutante, but she must disguise what she really did during the day to keep food on the table. When a wealthy businessman enters her life and wants to buy her land, she’s torn between giving up her deceased father’s dream—and wanting to give her heart to this stranger.

Wealthy businessman, Morgan Drake, has never lost a deal, and he’s not going to let a slip of a woman ruin one of the best deal’s he’s ever made. Surprised that the young woman was running the blacksmith’s shop, he wouldn’t let that deter his plans of taking over her land. The shop was losing money, and Morgan needed to somehow convince her to sell to him. However, he enjoyed seeing her every day and he especially looked forward to their verbal swordplay. Morgan knew she had a head for business…and a mouth for kissing. He’d definitely not give up until he reached his goal.
