Nothing shocks Captain Andrew St. James more than learning that he now stands as heir presumptive to his distant cousin the Duke of Carlyle. When Ilsa Ramsay discovers the handsome soldier who sweeps her off her feet for a rollicking dance is her friend's brother, soon to be an English duke, she tells herself he's not for her, no matter how tempting he is. But one impulsive kiss says otherwise. When Ilsa gets caught in a dangerous scandal, Drew leaps to her aid without hesitation. And neither family duty nor future obligation can make them ignore what's in both their hearts.
