The Ruby Slippers Scandal
(THE JEWELS OF LONDON, BOOK 1)
COMING DECEMBER 1, 2020
From critically acclaimed author, Alexandra Benedict, comes The Jewels of London Series, where five orphaned sisters receive a precious gemstone from their mysterious godmother—each jewel leading to scandal … and true love.
On her twenty-first birthday, Poppy Sterling receives an unexpected parcel. Inside is a pair of enchanted ruby slippers from her long-lost godmother. As Poppy searches for her mysterious relative, she falls into the arms of the infamous “Iron Duke”—a man with a cold heart and an even colder secret.
The notorious Duke of Greystone wants nothing to do with society after the death of his wife, but when an assassin’s bullet injures Poppy, he must protect the vulnerable—and very sensual—woman from harm, whisking her to his country manor.
As the couple search for the assassin’s identity, stormy winter nights bring temptation and seduction to an already dangerous liaison, for when the duke’s dark secret is revealed, Poppy might have to pay for it—with her life.
