If you love Julia Quinn's Bridgerton, you'll fall head over heels for the family at the heart of Sabrina Jeffries' Duke Dynasty series!
'Anyone who loves romance must read Sabrina Jeffries!' Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author
From New York Times bestselling author, and Queen of the sexy Regency romance, Sabrina Jeffries comes a sparkling series about an oft-widowed mother's grown children, who blaze through society in their quest for the truth about their fathers . . . and in the process find that love just might conquer all . . . For fans of Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn and Tessa Dare.
A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher 'Grey' Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. He has little time for finding a wife, but when his mother is widowed again, fate throws the delightfully unconventional Beatrice Wolfe into his path.
Beatrice gave up on romance long ago and, at first, meeting the arrogant Duke of Greycourt does little to change her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest 'project' - schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut - and Beatrice begins to glimpse the real Grey beneath the charming veneer. But once Grey starts digging into her family's secrets, she must decide whether her loyalties lie with her family...or with the man whose lessons capture her heart.
'Bestselling Jeffries brilliantly launches her new Duke Dynasty series with another exemplary Regency-set historical brilliantly sourced from her seemingly endless authorial supply of fascinating characters and compelling storylines' Booklist
'An excellent blend of great characters and witty dialogue make this a delicious first in a new series' Bookpage STARRED REVIEW
For more dazzlingly romantic and witty historical romance, don't miss Sabrina's other gorgeous series including The Sinful Suitors, The Hellions of Halstead Hall, The School for Heiresses and The Royal Brotherhood.
Jeffries's riveting first Duke Dynasty Regency has a little bit of everything: an independent, forthright woman; a handsome duke with trust issues; and a mystery. The Honorable Beatrice Wolfe is living with her brother, Joshua, at the dower house at Armitage Hall, where Joshua is the gamekeeper, when the Duke of Armitage dies. The duke's stepson, Fletcher "Grey" Pryde, Duke of Greycourt, comes to Armitage for the funeral at the request of his mother. Sparring between Beatrice and Grey becomes foreplay, which leads to a discourse on friendship and night of passion. But Grey and his brother, Sheridan, think Joshua might have killed Armitage, and Joshua doubts that Grey is serious about his intentions to marry Beatrice. Complex, intense characters heat up the pages with scintillating love scenes amid the intrigue. Jeffries (the Sinful Suitors series) continues to impress, and romance fans will eagerly await the next book.
