A former soldier, a spy, and a spinster…three people, three lovers.
For spinster Lelia August, first came the small fortune then came the hoard of unscrupulous characters wanting a piece of it—or more specifically, a piece of her. She decides to find a suitable man to marry, someone who won’t want her to submit to the marriage bed. She settles on ex-soldier Phineas Moore, who has a reputation as a lover of men.
Phineas is intrigued by Lelia’s offer and thinks a marriage of convenience might just work for them. But when someone tries to kill his future wife, Phineas vows to protect her and find who’s responsible. He hires the irresistible spy Rafe Gaudi to investigate, and soon realizes he’s outsmarted himself. Can Rafe and Phineas figure out who’s plotting against the woman they’ve come to love, and can they even hope to dream of a future where the three can become one?
