After the tragic death of his wife, Jasper, the 8th Duke of Bainbridge buried himself away in the dark cold walls of his home, Castle Blackwood. When he’s coaxed out of his self-imposed exile to attend the amusements of the Frost Fair, his life is irrevocably changed by his fateful meeting with Lady Katherine Adamson.
With her tight brown ringlets and silly white-ruffled gowns, Lady Katherine Adamson has found her dance card empty for two Seasons. After her father’s passing, Katherine learned the unreliability of men, and is determined to depend on no one, except herself. Until she meets Jasper…
In a desperate bid to avoid a match arranged by her family, Katherine makes the Duke of Bainbridge a shocking proposition—one that he accepts.
Only, as Katherine begins to love Jasper, she finds the arrangement agreed upon is not enough. And Jasper is left to decide if protecting his heart is more important than fighting for Katherine’s love
A wonderful read.
Not as historically accurate as some, but truly poignant story telling more than makes up for those missing details. Just a lovely book and well worth your time!

This is not a review but a message for iBook staff. This is already listed and my review is in the first listing. My other comment is that there are two books from the Scandalous Series that are missing: 1)Always Proper, Suddenly Scandalous 2) A Marquess for Christmas. Will you be able to include these as well as Caldwell's next Scandalous book coming out February 12, 2015 called once a Wallflower, at last His Love.??? You may leave me an answer at my e-mail address. Thank you!
For love a duke
