Lecia Cornwell wowed readers with her historical romance debut, Secrets of a Proper Countess, which Publishers Weekly called a "seductive read." This hugely talented author has launched an enchanting new series with How to Deceive a Duke, a captivating Regency romance featuring a lady who stands in for her runaway sister as the Duke of Temberly's bride—a deception the duke will exact a passionate price for from his new wife! Writing in the tradition of bestselling authors such as Lorraine Heath and Elizabeth Hoyt, Lecia Cornwell is sure to satisfy fans of sensual and smart historical romance.
In Cornwall's latest Regency romance (after All the Pleasures of the Season), Marguerite "Meg" Lynton immediately put herself forward when her skittish elder sister, Rose, balks at marrying Nicholas Hartley, duke of Temberlay and the so-called "wickedest rake in London." Not only is Meg intrigued by his reputation but she also knows that, following her father's death, their family badly needs the duke's money. Similarly, Nicholas doesn't care who he marries as long as his grandmother is pleased enough to save his estate from bankruptcy. He's thrown for a loop, however, by Meg's determination to get a child out of their match. As the two begin to fall in love, Nicholas uncovers dangerous secrets linking their pasts. Meg and Nicholas's chemistry will draw the reader into a fast-paced novel that travels from the English countryside and London to the battle of Waterloo.
