Book three of the Rogues of St. Just series
Captain Griffin Teague meets his match in the last place he ever thought to look: right next door.
Courting an irritating bluestocking began as a favor to a friend, and ended up being the mistake of his life.
With Bonaparte locked up and the war over, naval captain Griffin Teague has been at loose ends. When the local magistrate asks him to captain a ship and help put a stop to the “free trade” from France, he jumps at it. What he doesn’t expect to find is Miss Tomgallon, whose sharp tongue and sweet eyes drive him to distraction, mixed up with the smugglers.
Minerva Tomgallon came to St. Just to marry Griffin’s best friend, only to find he was in love with someone else. But now, between two unexpected new suitors and some strange goings-on at Trevenna, the haunted estate she has just inherited, she is at her wits’ end. The last person she can turn to for help is Griffin Teague, who betrayed her so callously with a courtship that was only a ruse. The worst of her troubles is that she’s still irresistibly drawn to him…
