Stacy Von Haegert
Anastasia Lintel never wanted for more than a simple existence, arranging flowers in her father's shop, catering to the soft-palmed elite. However, when tragedy strikes, taking with it the only family she has ever known, Anastasia must adapt to an unexpected new life.
Decreed missive in hand, Nathaniel Fitzpatrick, Duke of Avondale, descends on Anastasia's flower shop like an invading storm, removing her from her ordinary world with little explanation and thrusting her into his extravagant life.
Anastasia quickly realizes the Duke is the least of her troubles when she meets his four scandalous brothers. Each sibling is rivaling in intensity, physical prowess, and the unrelenting quest to see her gone, but none is as dangerous as their leader, Clinton Fitzpatrick.
Anastasia's litany of questions regarding The Duke's guardianship over her will have to wait while she tries to figure out how to manage her new role and the tormenting Lords that come with it.
With their wealth, power and mystery, these Lords set a stage that is far from ordinary. Will Anastasia be able to survive them until she turns one-and-twenty, or gets married, whichever comes first? Or will she lose herself in their glittering world that is anything but what it seems...
