Born a lowly gentleman farmer, Edward Sinclair is thrust into the role of the Earl of Harrington when a distant relative dies. Never trained to become the earl, there has never been a more unlikely nobleman. Edward's stark masculinity and brute strength set him apart and earn him the demeaning title of the Peasant Earl.
A spoiled heiress, Lady Bianca is known as the Ice Princess for toying with the affections of her suitors. But she has fallen for the one man her father, the Duke, won't let her marry; a rogue with no fortune to call his own. When another man, the Peasant Earl, arrives in London with an even worse reputation, Bianca is ready to exact her revenge, but will it cost her her heart?
Only Edward sees through the raven-haired beauty's silly flirtations, straight into her heart. What starts out as just a game, turns into a dangerous contest of wills, one that will require nothing less than complete surrender.
