A hidden ruby

Noah St John, the Duke of Huntly, lost his parents when he was a young boy and grew up with solicitors as guardians. When he met Rubina Leone he fell instantly in love with her.

The ship she sailed on found its way to a watery grave. After years of mourning her loss he decides to marry again. Only this time he wouldn’t engage his heart. He no longer had one.

Sample text:

“I no longer wish to live… Without my love, I have nothing.”

Rubina Leone St. John, the Duchess of Huntly meant those words. Without Noah… Her head fell forward hitting the palm of her hands. Tears streamed down her face. How could she go on without the only man she’d ever loved? If Paolo Fonte, Duca d’Sordillo, told the truth, her husband was dead.

“Don’t be dramatic, Rubina.” He held his hand over his heart. “On my honor, I will always take care of you.”
