She saved his life, but can she save him from himself?
Hunter, Marquess of Aaron, has the town fooled. Outwardly he’s a gentleman of position, with good contacts, wealth, and charm. Inwardly, he’s a mess. His vice – drinking himself into a stupor most days – almost kills him when he steps in front of a hackney cab. His saviour, a most unlikely person, is an angel to gaze at, but with a tongue sharper than his sword cane.

So, on a day when she was late for an important meeting at one of her many charities, she was not impressed by having to step in and save a foxed gentleman rogue from being run over.
When their social spheres collide, Hunter is both surprised and awed by the capable, beautiful Miss Smith.
