Jack Seaborne, Duke of Dettingham, needs a duchess, but falling in love is definitely not on the agenda. The logical thing would be to throw open the doors of his ducal country seat, host a house party for this season's most beautiful debutantes...and pick one of them.
But then Miss Jessica Pendle arrives--his aunt's plain-speaking goddaughter--and she's the one who stands out from the crowd. But Jessica is looking for love--the one emotion Jack resists. Although he can't deny there's something about Jessica that's very persuasive...!
