She was in love with her best friend’s brother.
He was known as the Delicious Duke, a sexy, out-of-her-league billionaire engaged to a princess. He was off-limits until that night Imogen dared kiss him and he kissed her back. For a few hours he had been hers.
Now Julian Walkden was back. Jilted by his fiancée, he thinks Imogen would make a suitable replacement bride. He promised to give her everything as his wife, except the one thing she needed…his love.
This is a complete, standalone romance with no cliffhanger.

I bought the fish food you wanted, by the way, the brand with the omega-3s. Love you.
Julian’s mobile phone rings. He picks up.
I love you too.
Why are you still up?
I’m working on the sketches for the new book. Thomas is sleeping with Nanny Jones tonight. He can’t sleep with the lights on.
So… he’s not in the room with you?
Don’t get any ideas.
(chuckles) I’m the ideas man.
(snorts) You’re a venture capitalist. You just fund other people’s ideas.
I have a talent for spotting the good ones. Take this 15-minute break before my next meeting. Golden opportunity, darling. I’m in my office, just me and my laptop, and we’re both so ready.
Well, in that case, I’m ready.
While I’m already hard.
I’ll turn my camera on if you turn yours on.
You go first.
God, I’m hoping you’re wearing that ratty shirt, the one that’s so thin I can see your—
Fine. I’ll skip the verbal foreplay. And we’re live…
Video call shenanigans ensue.
