Desperate Duchesse #6
On Sale: July 28, 2009
Featuring: Leopold, the Duke of Villier; Eleanor; Lissette
Add to Wish List
Leopold Dautry, the notorious Duke of Villiers,
must wed quickly and nobly—and his choices, alas,
are few. The Duke of Montague’s daughter, Eleanor, is
exquisitely beautiful and fiercely intelligent. Villiers
betroths himself to her without further ado.
After all, no other woman really qualifies. Lisette,
the outspoken daughter of the Duke of Gilner, cares nothing
for clothing or decorum. She’s engaged to another man, and
doesn’t give a fig for status or title. Half the ton
believes Lisette mad—and Villiers is inclined to agree.
Torn between logic and passion, between intelligence and
the imagination, Villiers finds himself drawn to the very
edge of impropriety. But it is not until he’s in a duel to
the death, fighting for the reputation of the woman he
loves, that Villiers finally realizes that the greatest
risk may not be in the dueling field…
But in the bedroom. And the heart.

Re: A Duke of Her Own
I have eagerly followed every book in this series and am thrilled that the "villain" Villiers is finally getting his own lady and his own story! I hope this isn't he end of the series!
