Drake's Damsels ~ The Return of Drake's Rakes #4
January 1, 1970
Three Times a Lady
A sensible woman would know when to give up…
But Pip Knight has loved Viscount Drummond since she was a very little girl. And just because he doesn’t believe he can love her doesn’t mean she shouldn’t watch over him. Pip knows Beau’s secret, that he works with a clandestine group of gentlemen called Drake’s Rakes to help protect England. She also knows he is in danger and would do anything to protect him. Unhappily for them both, that means a forced marriage. The question is now whether to fight for a marriage with a man who has long since buried his heart and blames her for it.
A sensible man would know when to give up…
But Beau Drummond has a score to settle. Not just with the group of traitors who are trying to overthrow the crown. But with the people who helped his beloved brother Theo to run off to war, where he died, leaving Beau guilt-stricken and grieving. And one of those people is Pip Knight. It doesn’t help that Pip is unforgettable in every way, infecting a man’s dreams and trying to seduce him back to life. It doesn’t matter that she is his wife. Pip was supposed to be Theo’s wife, and Beau cannot forgive himself for taking Theo’s place. Everything changes when he and Pip find themselves in a deadly fight that could destroy both their country and themselves.
