A stunning debut for author Evie Dunmore and her Oxford
Rebels in which a fiercely independent vicar's daughter
takes on a powerful duke in a love story that threatens to
upend the British social order.
1879. Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute
daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place
among the first cohort of female students at the renowned
University of Oxford. In return for her scholarship, she
must support the rising women's suffrage movement. Her
charge: recruit men of influence to champion their cause.
Her target: Sebastian Devereux, the cold and calculating
Duke of Montgomery who steers Britain's politics at the
Queen's command. Her challenge: not to give in to the
powerful attraction she can't deny for the man who opposes
everything she stands for.
Sebastian is appalled to
find a suffragist squad has infiltrated his ducal home, but
the real threat is his impossible feelings for green-eyed
beauty Annabelle. He is looking for a wife of equal standing
to secure the legacy he has worked so hard to rebuild, not
an outspoken commoner who could never be his duchess. But he
wouldn't be the greatest strategist of the Kingdom if he
couldn't claim this alluring bluestocking without the
promise of a ring…or could he?
Locked in a battle
with rising passion and a will matching her own, Annabelle
will learn just what it takes to topple a duke….
