Lady Gwendolyn Bounds survived smallpox at the age of eight to go on to do…nothing.

Outcast by society because of the scars that mark her face, Gwen has convinced herself that a future as a spinster spent aiding her mother in her doddering years will be enough even as her heart knows it is not. Somewhere there is a second chance out there.

She just never thought it would be with a sheep farmer from Yorkshire.

Haunted by the cruelty of his first wife and desperate to repair the damage she did to the title, Logan is determined to find a plain, biddable second wife who will represent the title with respect and cause him no trouble. So when he finds an earl desperate to marry off his unattractive, spinster daughter, Logan thinks he’s found the answer to all his problems.

Except his problems have only just begun when he finds himself falling in love with a wife who is anything but biddable.
