Alec Black, the Earl of Stryden, sees the inevitable and does his damnedest to ignore it.
When another crop infestation at the family’s estate in Bedford collides with a promotion from the War Office, Alec is torn between his duty to his heritage and his duty to the crown.

But when a common footpad threatens his wife, Sarah, Alec must face what it really means to one day be a duke.
