Nice addition to the Girl Bachelors series. Prudence Bosworth had her entire life changed overnight. She went from a poor seamstress to an heiress. A few days later she went from a spinster to engagement to the man of her dreams.
Rhys de Winter is a Duke who is penniless and carrying a lot of emotional family baggage. He met Prudence at a ball when she was working as a seamstress repairing gowns. He was a hero to her that night and he was very attracted to her. Unfortunately he may be a rake, but he also needs a heiress so he has to leave her be.
Imagine his surprise a few days later when he spies her at the opera and instantly recognizes her as the seamstress. Imagine his surprise when he finds out she is now one of the wealthiest women in the world, thanks her recent inheritance.
