Widowed, penniless Sabrina Whitcomb isn't looking for romance. What she needs is a husband, and she knows well enough that romance and matrimony aren't always compatible. While providing for her twins and the child she now carries is paramount, wedding a virtual stranger - even a wealthy one, like Gideon St. Goddard, Duke of Stanthorpe - is no light matter. Sabrina knows the friend who arranged the union would not promise her to a true scoundrel, but one look at her future husband convinces her that he is a shameless rogue. A shockingly handsome and desirable one, at that. Why has he agreed to marry her? When Gideon flashed that wicked, seductive smile, the reason hardly matters, but the chance that he'll steal her hear becomes all too real . . .
Sabrina groaned and accepted his supportive embrace. This new husband of hers was not the doddering old duke on canvas, but a flesh-and-blood man, young, vibrant, and alive. A rare one who stirred her senses and became awed by the movement of her unborn child.
What had she gotten herself into?
In an effort to re-create the extraordinary connection she had experienced the night before, when he touched her burgeoning belly, Sabrina stepped back, took her husband's big, capable hands, and placed them flat against her child's cocoon. "Will you, become his first pony?"
When Gideon's haughty, aristocratic features softened, so, too, did the brittle wall Sabrina kept erected around her oft-pummeled heart.
"Of course," he said with so easy a smile, Sabrina fancied they could both imagine the resultant giggles, and suddenly she dared hope that her bargain of a marriage might not be so unpleasant an arrangement after all.
