Lady Diana de Wolfe’s curiosity about kissing led to her ruin before she ever made her come-out in London. Banished from her home by a furious, disappointed father, Diana gives birth out of wedlock to twins and supports her family without help until her parents’ deaths. Her brother, the new Earl of Reston, welcomes her back into the family fold and takes Diana to London, hoping she can make a match—and demanding she keep silent about her children until she’s lands a husband.
Oliver Ward, Earl of Merrifield, raised his siblings after his father’s tragic death and his mother’s subsequent madness. With his brother at university and his sister making her come-out, Oliver is ready to find a wife and start a family of his own. His good friend, Lady Merrick, whom he almost wed, promises to help him find the right woman.
Meeting shortly before the London Season begins, Oliver is drawn to Diana’s spirit and beauty. Her attraction for him only grows when he learns about her precocious twins and he is determined to make her his.
Will the rumors regarding Diana’s past mistakes doom this couple in society’s eyes—or can love overcome gossip and save them both?
*Diana occurs after the events written about in Alexa Aston’s bestselling St. Clairs Trilogy—Devoted to the Duke, Midnight with the Marquess, and Embraced by the Earl—and is a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World.
