A 2018 Daphne du Maurier finalist
First comes love, then comes marriage. Unless it's the otherway around. . .
General Mark Grimaldi has sacrificed everything for his military career, working his way through the ranks without the benefit of a nobleman's title. Now, his years of dedication are about to pay off—with an offer for a prestigious promotion to Home Secretary. There's only one condition: Mark must be married. Aside from the small matter of not actually wanting to be wed, Mark faces another troubling problem: he already has a wife.
Nicole Huntington Grimaldi has spent ten contented years in France without her husband—and without regret. When Mark asks her to return to London and play the part of his beloved wife, she sees her chance. But neither of them is prepared for news that will throw Mark's future into chaos…nor the undeniable desire they've rekindled. Maybe happily-ever-after can happen the second time around in A Duke Like No Other, the next Regency romance from Valerie Bowman.

A joy to read, well-written
This book was a joy to read. Valerie Bowman is a "head and shoulders above the rest" standout historical romance author. Her characters are well rounded, her storylines are a cut above the rest for including spies, murder and mystery in a romance setting. This makes for an enjoyable and interesting read. The pages just fly by......
