The Earl’s Debt (The Worthy Peers #1) by Constance Remillard – Free eBooks Download
Betrayed by those he loved, the Earl of Sedrich is resigned to his fate until a guileless young woman awakens his long-dormant heart. Problem is, she’s a penniless ward, and he’s no longer rich enough not to care. With the earldom in debt, Sedrich will do what he must to preserve his family name and the lives of those who depend on it. He thinks he’s found a wife, and a way out of his troubles, when an old foe reappears to shatter his hopes.
Not for the first time.
For three years Anne Merritt has avoided matrimony only to find herself betrothed to a man she’s never met: an aging widower her guardian claims is willing to cover her substantial debt. Anne doesn’t want some distasteful old lord for a husband; she wants the mysterious German-speaking Herr who captivated her imagination the moment he gave her a gift no gentleman would dare offer a lady.
One she’s kept secret ever since.
Filled with heartbreak and heroism, this steamy romance is rife with family entanglements and characters willing to break the rules of Victorian England. Readers will wonder just how much damage one dying aunt and one dastardly widower can possibly do to an upstanding earl and a debt-ridden girl. Hint: a terrific amount.
