Beholden

by Charlotte Russell

The Earl of Lexden needs the assistance of his wife—the wife he banished to the country six years ago after he discovered what he believes was her perfidy and the bastard child she carried in her belly. Haunted by his mother’s unfaithfulness and his father’s consequent suicide, Lex regretted his marriage to Eleanor before the last vow left his lips. Now he needs her help to court a business partner and destroy an old enemy.
