Chemistry is everything...
A past kiss with Miss Olivia Norley should be barely a memory for Marlowe Drake, the Duke of Thornstock. After all, there are countless debutantes for a handsome rakehell to charm beyond a young lady whose singular passion is chemistry - of the laboratory type. But Thorn has not forgotten - or forgiven - the shocking blackmail scheme sparked by that single kiss. Now Thorn's half-brother, Grey, has hired the brilliant Miss Norley for her scientific expertise in solving a family mystery. And the once-burned Thorn, suspicious of her motives, vows to follow her every move...
For Olivia, determining whether arsenic poisoning killed Grey's father is the pioneering experiment that could make her career - and Thorn's constant presence is merely a distraction. But someone has explosive plans to derail her search. Soon the most unexpected discovery is the caring nature of the reputed scoundrel beside her - and the electricity it ignites between them...
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.
The chemistry is as intense in the bedroom as it is in the science lab in Jeffries's intoxicating third Duke Dynasty Regency romance (after The Bachelor). Nine years earlier, Marlowe "Thorn" Drake, the Duke of Thornstock, and Miss Olivia Norley were caught in a compromising position when their first meeting ended in a passionate kiss. Thorn indignantly assumed that Olivia had orchestrated the moment to trap him into marriage but when he proposed to save her reputation, she turned him down. Though they've not seen each other since, Thorn's wounded pride and sense of betrayal linger. The pair are reunited when Thorn's half-brother, Grey, engages Olivia, a brilliant chemist, to help solve the cold-case of his father's murder by testing the body for arsenic poisoning. Convinced Olivia must have ulterior motives for agreeing to the plan, Thorn inserts himself into their trip to Grey's country seat only to rediscover Olivia's charm and intelligence. Their powerful attraction to each other leads to several intense physical encounters, but trust eludes them until danger comes knocking on Olivia's lab door, and Thorn and Grey band together to protect her. Jeffries's perfect blend of romance, mystery, and suspense is sure to have series readers anxious for more.
