Jenny Barnett dreams of becoming a chef. She works in the family business her parents worked so hard to create from scratch and finds great pleasure in her simple, country life.
When meeting the very handsome but alarmingly popular among the ladies Thomas Haddington, the famous Duke of Pemberton, a whole new world full of possibilities opens up to her, and she goes through a complete makeover to win over his heart.
However, battling her feelings of love seems to be the only way in a society ruled by status and social standing…
With not only his entire dukedom’s future at stake but also his painful past forever hanging upon him like a dark cloud, Thomas soon discovers that everything in his life left worth fighting for is suddenly threatened by utter extinction.
More tragically, the enemy is no other than the only person he would put his hand in the fire to prove him innocent…the scheming Earl of Denham or, in other words, his very own uncle.
