Description

The second book in the clever, sexy Desperately Seeking Duke series from USA Today bestselling and RITA award-winning author Caroline Linden.



An Officer and a Scotsman

Captain Andrew St. James always knew he came from a noble family, but his branch grew far from the wealth and status. Nothing shocks him more than learning that he now stands as heir presumptive to his distant cousin the Duke of Carlyle. There is much for Drew to learn and adjust to-but first he goes home to Edinburgh, to tell his mother and three sisters of their startling good fortune.

A Lady and a Temptress

Ilsa Ramsay yearns for some adventure and fun, not another husband. When she discovers the handsome soldier who sweeps her off her feet for a rollicking dance is her friend's brother, soon to be an English duke, she tells herself he's not for her, no matter how tempting he is. But one impulsive kiss, then another, and another... says otherwise.

An Irresistible Attraction

Drew means to marry a respectable, dignified Englishwoman-a very proper future duchess. The spirited Ilsa is none of that. Still, when she's caught in a dangerous scandal, he leaps to her aid without hesitation. And neither family duty nor future obligation can make them ignore what's in both their hearts.
