All Olivia Holladay wants is the chance to make a home for herself. When she realizes that the infamous Duke of Marwick might hold the key to her freedom, she boldly disguises herself as the newest and bravest in a long line of the temperamental duke’s housekeepers. Little does she know that the wickedly handsome Alastair de Grey has very different plans for her . . .
Alastair de Grey has suffered a betrayal so deep that he will use whatever means necessary to destroy his enemies — even his brazen and beautiful housekeeper. But his vengeful plan fails to account for his single weakness: an irresistible and growing passion for the enigmatic Olivia...
Olivia Johnson, parlor maid. Olivia Holladay, former secretary. Olivia Mather, blackmailer. While Olivia may be prone to identity crisis, she is sure of one thing—that she would get her revenge against the man whom played a role in her attempted murder seven years ago. That man is her father, Lord Bertram who abandoned her and her mother to start a new family.Olivia has set an elaborate plan in motion to bring down Baron Bertram. She stole letters from her former employer, Lady Elizabeth Chudderley, with which she plans to blackmail Bertram. Her next target is Elizabeth’s brother-in-law, Alastair de Grey, fifth Duke of Marwick, who has also been wronged by Bertram. As it turns out, the late duchess was unfaithful and conspired with Bertram, and Olivia has the letters to prove it. But she needs more information to blackmail him. And, if she’s lucky, an ally. Why wouldn’t Marwick want to destroy the man who had slept with his wife and plotted against him?
