Their paths cross when Daphne's landlord dies and Tristan inherits the land on which she runs her modest flower business. Rarest Blooms secretly offers sanctuary to women who need it, no questions asked. Dukes always get what they want, and Tristan instantly wants Daphne, but she challenges him in arguments as passionate and provocative as their eventual lovemaking. The backdrop of spousal abuse and the millworkers' riots is leavened by mishap as Tristan acts on erroneous assumptions that Daphne cheerfully refrains from correcting. Fans will be delighted to learn what the previous Rarest Blooms ladies and their husbands are up to, laugh at their chatter, and cheer their unwavering friendship.
