The Duchess Deal : Girl Meets Duke
When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules...Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury's to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne'er-do-wells by night. Now there's a new item on the list. He needs an heir-which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar's daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she'll do. His terms are simple: - They will be husband and wife by night only. - No lights, no kissing. - No questions about his battle scars. - Last, and most importantly...Once she's pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again. But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own: - They will have dinner together every evening. - With conversation. - And unlimited teasing. - Last, and most importantly...Once she's seen the man beneath the scars, he can't stop her from falling in love...

"Dare once again works her own irresistible brand of magic by taking a cast of richly nuanced characters, a deliciously clever plot... and a generous measure of addictively tart wit, and then she spins the whole thing into pure literary gold."--Booklist (starred review)
