At age eighteen, Hudson St. Clair learns he’s the Duke of Everton’s bastard. Though never clamed by his father, the new duke, Hudson’s half-brother, accepts Hudson into the family, gifting him with a university education and teaching him about the myriad of businesses controlled by the St. Clair family. His grandmother, Cor, guides Hudson in how to become a gentleman and molds his character, making him a man to be reckoned with. Upon Cor’s death, her wealth and estate will go to him—provided Hudson weds within sixty days after the reading of her will.
Lady Mia Sloane is an inventor, caring for her feeble-minded father on their crumbling country estate. Upon his death, Mia is swept away to London by her pushy but loving aunt, who tries to turn Mia into a woman she’s not. Attending society events at night, Mia spends her days working on her devices, especially the new steam engine she’s sold to Hudson St. Clair and his family.
When Mr. St. Clair proposes a marriage of convenience in order to allow Mia to continue working on her prototypes, she leaps at the offer, despite never having desired a husband or children. The only thing troubling her is her new husband tells her she’s not expected to share his bed—the very thing Mia has become most interested in doing since their experiments in kissing have awakened something within her that only Hudson St. Clair can fill.
Can two misfits rejected by society come together and grow stronger through the lasting bond of love?
Find the answer in bestselling author Alexa Aston’s final book of The St. Clairs, Suddenly a St. Clair.
