When the Duke of Danby comes to London for the Season,
anything can happen!
DISMISSING THE DUKE contains...
FLIRTING WITH SCANDAL by JERRICA KNIGHT-CATANIA
Esther Whitton has gladly spent the last few months enjoying
the quiet calmness of a Yorkshire winter, devouring books
and attempting to keep herself from falling for a man she
knows she can never have. But when her Great-uncle Danby
announces they're all going to London for the Season, she
decides it's time to step out of her comfort zone and follow
her heart before it's given away to another.
Timothy Hargood knows his place is in servitude, and
therefore pining after a woman destined to be the wife of a
peer is completely pointless. But when she makes the first
advances, how can he resist?
Star-crossed from the start, this unlikely pair must try to
find a way to be together, even if it means thwarting the
all-powerful Duke of Danby to do so.
THE HUSBAND HUNT by CLAUDIA DAIN
Miss Julia Whitton is in London to find a husband, but only
the proper sort of husband, one who has a stellar house with
the funds to see to life's luxurious essentials without
strain. She meets a moderately attractive man with a truly
superb house on her first day in London. Unfortunately for
Julia, Mr. Peter Grant must rent his house on Portman Square
to pay off his brother's gaming debts. Julia and her family
move into Peter's house and to her shock and fascination,
Julia finds little notes secreted all over the Portman
Square property. Each note reveals a bit more about Peter
and Julia, sensible in the extreme, finds herself falling in
love with Pete re the Pauper of Portman Square. Should any
London Season possibly begin on worse footing?
LOOK TO THE STARS by OLIVIA KELLY
Leonato Blakeley, heir to the earldom of Pennyworth, has no
intention of marrying any time soon. He's got against
marriage, unless the term is being paired with his name. His
great-uncle, the matchmaking Duke of Danby, has arrived in
town, and Leo needs A Plan.
American heiress Miriam Rosenbaum has crossed an ocean to
study the stars with the best scientists in the field. Well,
perhaps her mother thinks they're in London to find husbands
for the scandalous Madcap Rosenbaum sisters. But Miriam is
determined not only to visit the Royal Observatory, but
participate in their groundbreaking research.
Together, they might have a chance at accomplishing their
goals. But when the Season is over, walling away from each
other might be their greatest challenge yet.
