Series | Romance Historical

In a tragic twist of fate caring, innocent Lucinda Wellingham is forced to marry the most dishonorable Duke of Alderworth. Lucinda soon becomes a forgotten and lonely bride, until one day the duke decides to take his place at Alderworth, and as Lucinda's husband. Against her elder brothers' wishes Lucinda moves to the duke's estate, and wishes to learn about the man she is married to. Soon Lucinda realizes Alderworth is more than he seems, and finds herself falling in love. Will Lucinda and the duke realize their love for each other or will Lucinda stay the forgotten bride forever?

THE DISSOLUTE DUKE is tragic and sad, yet warm and joyful. This combination makes THE DISSOLUTE DUKE an intriguing adventure, and readers will be curious about the unusual characters. The Duke of Alderworth is a patient hero, who goes through more than his fair share of problems, and still he is forgiving. Lucinda is caring, but lonely, and only wants to be loved. These two characters will melt a reader's heart and they will find themselves eager for these two to have a happy ending. Sophia James has created a satisfying plot, and THE DISSOLUTE DUKE is a creative must read.

Learn more about The Dissolute Duke


With a name synonymous with sin and debauchery so shocking it is spoken of only in whispers, Taylen Ellesmere, Duke of Alderworth, is more surprised than anyone when he finds himself forced to marry! Before the ink is dry on the register, he turns his back on this sham of a marriage and leaves. Three years later, having barely survived the scandal, Lady Lucinda has placed one delicately shod foot back in the hallowed halls of the ton when her husband returns. He has an offer she can't refuse. And in exchange? Their wedding night!
