Two brilliant scholars engaged in a battle of wits...and seduced by the lure of passion.

Mr. James Alcott has carved out his place in the world with an esteemed position at Harrow School. But when the school changes direction, he's set adrift. He can redeem himself by founding a scholarship program if he wins the annual Duke's Trust competition for seed money. A seemingly simple task. Until a mysterious competitor enters the race.

Lady Tessa Harmsworth has fabricated the reclusive Mr. Pettibone as the champion of her women's education fund. It's the only way a woman can enter the Duke's Trust competition, let alone win it. And Tessa intends to win. Until her annoyingly clever opponent sets out to uncover her ruse.

As Tessa and James match wits, their spirited rivalry turns into a passionate affair. With the coveted prize hanging in the balance, they must choose between their lifelong dreams and their reckless hearts.

About the Author

Nancy spent her early years longing to be an English countryside vet thanks to James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small series, and an adventurist archaeologist like George Lucas's Indiana Jones character. After studying veterinary pre-med and earning an anthropology degree, she realized her true passion is story in all its forms. When Nancy's not writing, reading, or binge-watching story, she's often pursuing a physical challenge like studying Krav Maga or aspiring to achieve the perfect crow pose. She also spends her time drinking too much coffee, not enough red wine, and just the right amount of Bourbon. She lives in Maryland with her fabulous family, which includes some very spoiled rescue cats.
