HEIRESS GONE WILD
Dear Lady Truelove Series
BY LAURA LEE GUHRKE
Dear Lady Truelove,
My ward is driving me crazy. I have to marry her off and get her out of my life. There’s just one problem…
When Jonathan Deverill promised a dying friend he’d be guardian to the man’s daughter, he envisioned a girl in pigtails and pinafores, a child he could leave behind in some finishing school. Problem is, his ward is actually a fully-grown, defiant beauty whose longing for romance threatens to make his guardianship a living hell.
New York heiress Marjorie McGann wants a London season and a titled husband who can help her spend the Yankee millions she’s inherited, and she thinks her new British guardian is the perfect person to help her find him. But Jonathan has no intention of letting his friend’s fortune be squandered. Under his watchful, protective eye, Marjorie finds romance hard to come by . . . until one fateful night when her own guardian’s devastating kisses makes her wonder if the greatest romance of all might be right in front of her.
About the Book
Heiress Gone Wild

Dear Lady Truelove Series (All Novels Are Standalone)
September 24, 2019
Jonathan turned from the window, but instead of the pig-tailed schoolgirl he’d expected to find, he saw a woman of about twenty standing in the doorway, a woman of such remarkable beauty that he sucked in a startled breath.
“Yes,” he answered. “I am Jonathan Deverill. But I think there has been some mistake. I have come to see Miss Marjorie McGann.”
“So you did,” she agreed, laughing. “And here I am.”
On his deathbed, Billy had told Jonathan of Marjorie’s existence for the first time, begging his partner to protect and look after his little girl. But as Jonathan’s gaze left her stunning face and traveled down over the generous curves of her figure, he appreciated in chagrin that Marjorie McGann was not, in any way, shape or form, a little girl.
“Hell,” he muttered, his ladylike surroundings forgotten, his tongue lapsing into the crude language of the Western mining towns and saloons he’d left behind. “God damn and holy hell.”
