Love blossoms for a Lady Gardener when she robs a Duke. . . and then steals his heart.

Alexandra Grantham becomes Lady Robin Hood, stealing from the rich to provide for the local farm workers in the district. However, when her new neighbor, Mr. Robert Chanderly, unmasks her, Alexandra cannot hide her horror as he has it within his power to ruin her reputation. But, instead of blighting her social chances when they arrive in London, Robert decides to bring Alexandra into high fashion, and she effectively takes the ton by storm.  
Enemies abound in the Capital, however, causing trouble for Alexandra at every turn. So when an adversary threatens to reveal Alexandra’s dangerous secret, Robert must do everything within his power to defend the honor of the woman he loves—or lose the only lady he’s ever wished to make his wife.

The best course of action open to her now would be
to retreat in haste with dignity. She had no desire to continue arguing with
this man while standing before him in a wet gown. It placed her at too great

“Of course.” Mr. Chanderly glanced at Alexandra’s horse, tethered to a
nearby tree. “Why are you unescorted?”
“I always dispense of a groom’s services when I am out riding because I
know the countryside very well and see no need to burden myself or the

“I beg to differ. It is not at all the thing to ride unescorted. You may
encounter an unsavory character and have no protection from him.”
“Yes,” Alexandra mused. “I think I discovered that today.”
A dangerous light appeared in his green eyes. “Careful, my dear.”
Alexandra backed away from him and went to untie Starlight, her
chestnut mare.

He followed her. “Tending a vegetable patch is an unusual occupation
for a young lady. Do you often work here?”
“Not as much as I once did. This field borders our land, though, so I
occasionally check on it. It has been rather neglected of late.”
“Let me escort you home.”

Knowing from previous experience that it would be futile to argue with
him, Alexandra, with a somewhat ill grace, consented to be thrown up into
the saddle.
