Billionaire Riggins Feldhem, Co-founder of Flashionista, is in for the shock of his life. On top of being the 2nd hottest bachelor, he has just inherited the title of Duke, and with it comes obligations and responsibilities he neither wants, nor needs. To his dismay, he must marry and produce an heir before time runs out, or suffer the loss of his business. Is there a way out, or is he doomed to this thorn in his side?
Haley Hamilton has admired him from afar, but why would he ever spare her a second glance? With much weight on her shoulders she goes on, trying to get by while supporting her ill adopted sister, Sid, who suffers from a rare disease of which only the marrow from a relative can save her. It comes as a surprise that – according to the issuant lawyer of the late Duke’s will – due to her lineage, she’s the only suitable woman to marry the now ‘his Grace’, Mr. Feldhem. To decline would deprive Sid of the chance to live a full and normal life. Can she marry and produce an heir with a man who doesn’t love her, or will she go along with his plan, his offer and efforts to find a loophole of escape, in exchange for enough money and resources to find the relative needed for Sid’s chance at a real life?
To complicate matters, another woman has come forth stating she’s also qualified to become the Duke’s wife. Haley needs to decide quickly. Does she dare try to have it all, or will she allow her perceived better to take away her chance with the man she’s always wanted?
This contemporary Cinderella story is a cliffhanger. I enjoyed it immensely and am eager to read the rest of the series.
