When a Duke Desires a Lass: A Sweet Historical Regency Romance (Seductive Scoundrels Book 15)


HISTORICAL: Emily Grenville, a young widow, has successfully seen her niece married off and now finds herself at loose ends. Tobias Forsyth, Duke of Heatherston and a Scot, is desperate for help in launching his niece on her first London Season. Enlisting the help of Emily is an answer to his prayers. It doesn't hurt, either, that he's been attracted to her since their first meeting. Emily makes it clear that she'll assist the duke, but there can be no question of anything more personal. She has no intention of remarrying, not after what her scoundrel husband did to her. But Tobias is nothing if not patient. As the two spend time together, Emily begins to wonder if in Tobias she has met a man whom she truly can trust and love with all her heart.

Emily has had to learn to be strong, but it came at a high price, and she has no desire to trust another man. The truth of her marriage is a specter that follows her and threatens any chance of happiness. Tobias with a Scots penchant for colorful language, charms from the start.
