Ash Turner made something of himself by way of commerce. He traveled to India, he learned business, he did what he had to do. Then he came back for his brothers.
Now there's a way for him to reclaim the dukedom that should be his and he's taking it. He's moving right in to Parford Manor along with Mark. Except the old family left a spy behind. Lady Margaret Dalrymple, who now has to report back to his brother of anything that they can use in their legal battle to retain the dukedom in their family.
She never fit in her family, her family never had her back. So when Ash pays so much attention to her, and shows that he truly cares for her, it slowly disarms her and brings down her barriers.
Ash is the steady rock, the pillar of his family. That's all he knows how to be. So he wants to provide the same for Margaret, no matter what others might think.
I was a bit concerned as to how Ms. Milan would bring back the heroine from such a betrayal to our hero but it all worked out very well I think, without seeming completely out of reality.
Now I can't wait to read about the other brothers! Yummy!
"You're important. You matter."
"I am trying to have you. Not for one night, nor even two. I want you every evening. Mine outright, not a few hours stolen here or there. I want you during the day, on my arm. I want to know that when we're apart you're missing me. I want to know that when we're together, I'm the one who puts the smile on your face."
