Ribbons and Roses

Despite the loss of her family's fortune, Arabella Williams has endeavored to maintain the appearance of respectability. When a family's debt is called in and they cannot afford to pay, Arabella decides to risk the last thing she truly possesses: her reputation.

Cyrus Dryden is suspicious of everyone and he has the scars to remind him of why. After years of distancing himself from polite society and embarking on voyages to far off places, he has embraced his gruff exterior and has no intention of behaving the gentleman for anyone, including the innocently seductive Miss Williams.

Can Arabella tame the boorish manners of this arrogant duke or has she truly placed her reputation into the hands of a beast?

A closed door Regency Romance.
