A long-lost son.
An elderly Duke.

Thomas Copper is a man struggling to survive. When he hears about an elderly Duke looking for his long-lost son, he decides to throw caution to the wind and try to wheedle his way into the Duke’s graces.
When things go better than expected, Thomas is quite content to continue with his new life as the heir to the Dukedom. He is easily able to ignore the stab of guilt whenever the Duke looks at him with fondness in his eyes, telling himself that it’s a good outcome for them both.
But then a stranger appears at the house. One neither the Duke or Thomas were expecting.
â?¨Lady Mina Fullworth doesn’t want to be here. She doesn’t want to do what her father has demanded but she has very little choice. The last thing she expects is to fall in love with the new heir to the Dukedom.

Will Thomas fall for Lady Mina? Will he be able to keep his secrets to himself or will the guilt he feels force him to tell her the truth? And what will happen if he does?
