The third book in A Gentleman's Daughter trilogy. Jack Brightwell is home. For years, he’s distanced himself from his only love, and sought justice for his murdered shipmates. Now he must take his place as heir to his family’s estate, a position he did not think to find himself in. And his mama, the only family he has left, urges him to marry. When he comes across Emily Latimer crying over her cousin’s plan to marry her off to a half-wit, Jack sees a solution for them both, even though it risks his heart, and the love he’s kept secret. Emily Latimer agrees to marry Jack, to save herself, and her cousin Susan, from being forced to marry. Jack had been Emily’s childhood hero, and tormentor. She believes she can protect her heart—and Susan—from the machinations of men. But marrying Jack forces her to confront her past, her lies, and her true feelings. While they work to save her cousins, Emily and Jack begin to hope their love can redeem them, and create a new beginning for all they hold dear.
