Portia:
The man started his very first conversation with me, by asking me for my hand in marriage.
That was a negative.

Forget that he’s a Republican, rude and intrusive. He is also different from any man that I have ever met.
Yet, there is a side to him that forces me to pay attention. Not the constant counting, the stupid surveys and his defense of building walls.
That is simply annoying, but…there’s something about this man.
He’s a different kind of perfect!
I’m definitely not marrying him, though.

Duncan:
The woman is beautiful, smart, and accomplished, but she will not marry me.
I had one chance with her, but due to circumstances outside of my control, she no longer will engage with me on an intimate level.
She is the only one that I can sleep through the night with…the only one that feels right for someone like me.
No one else will do.


Note: Readers should read Book 1, Trent, as those characters are heavily weaved into Duncan. Also, this book, specifically the Hero, is a bit different than a typical Xyla Turner book. It is IR, BWWM, and HEA, but Duncan is a different kind of perfect. I hope you give him a chance.

BONUS: Read the first chapter of James (Book 3)
