It’s the happiest day of her life when he proposes. Then she finds out he lied. He’s a viscount and close friends with Baron Flaxley, a man she finds despicable. She wants to stop caring about Peter, but it’s hard to forget him when he stays, refusing to believe the truth, and making himself a target.
