Miss Alexandra Farris lost her heart to her older brother’s friend, Lord Maxon Collins, long, long ago. Despite her girlhood attempts to win him, he never noticed her. Now that her first season is underway, she understands why. He prefers willowy blondes, not curvaceous maidens with darker coloring like herself. Rather than wallow in self-pity, she forgets love and focuses on something more attainable—an advantageous match.
Lord Collins is plagued by an uncomfortable feeling whenever he goes near Miss Farris. One of annoyance. And yet, he can’t seem to stop thinking of her, touching her, kissing her…He must act in her brother’s stead, which means he has to approve her suitor and ensure her safety. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to find a worthy gentleman.
Wedding her off should be a simple task, but not if he can’t let her go.




“Then why did you kiss me?” She looked away from him in an attempt to hide her emotions. No
matter his answer, she doubted her wounds would disappear. Not after he had admitted he did
not want her. And why should he? It wasn’t as if Alexa could ever compare to her.

He scowled and turned his attention to the pond. “Your hair seemed to come alive in the
firelight, and I could not help but touch it.”

She waited for him to continue, but when he did not, she bristled. “First, you blame spirits, and
then, you blame my hair. Why do you not take accountability for your actions?” The sun’s rays
beat down without mercy. She shivered, despite the warmth of the day.

At her words, his gaze went to hers. He eyed her and took a predatory step toward her. She
sensed she had pushed him too far as his voice dropped to a deep, scratchy whisper. “You wish
to know why I kissed you? How about because I wanted to?”

Everything fell away, lost to the brute force of his energy. This response was most unexpected.

“There is no other reason than my desire for you.” His eyes clouded, and she shivered again. He
turned his head from her and said, “I am supposed to be the consummate gentleman, yet I could
not resist the one I swore to watch over and protect.”

She parted her lips, and his eyes went to them. His normally light-hearted mien held a harsh note,
a devilishly uncaring one that made Alexa shudder in anticipation. “I have a great many duties,
you know. You are not the only person to rely on me, yet you are the only one I failed.” He
cursed and took one more step to her, coming nearly toe to toe with her. “It is shameful, but
dammit, I want to do it again.”

Naomi Boom is an author who never expected to love writing. Her inspiration struck on a search for the perfect historical romance novel to read. Nothing sounded appealing, so she decided to write her own. That one novel has morphed into a series, and hopefully many, many more.
She resides in her home state of South Dakota with her husband and toddler. Her dream is to someday find an acreage where she can raise chickens and continue her writing.
