In the fourth novel of Maya Rodale’s tantalizing series, a newly minted duke spends one night with his perfect woman...but can he win her for a lifetime
When American-born James Cavendish arrives in London tomorrow, he’ll become the Duke of Durham. Some might be ecstatic at the opportunity. Not James. He’s a simple man, fond of simple pleasures. And right now, nothing could be more pleasurable than spending his last night of freedom with a beautiful stranger.
Are Far Too Good…
One wild night, Meredith Green, companion to the dowager Duchess of Durham, said yes to a man she thought she’d never see again. Suddenly, they’re living under the same roof, where Meredith is expected to teach James how to be a duke—while trying not to surrender to temptation a second time.
To Be Forgotten
For a duke and a commoner, marriage would be pure scandal. Yet nothing has ever felt as right as having Meredith in his arms…and in his bed. Soon he must choose—between a duty he never desired, and a woman he longs for, body and soul…
Rodale concludes her Keeping Up with the Cavendishes Regency series with this delightful fourth installment (after Lady Claire Is All That). James Cavendish travels from America to England after learning that he has inherited the dukedom of Durham. While staying at a tavern in Southampton, he meets the beautiful Meredith Green, and the undeniable attraction between them leads to one night of incredible passion. When James and his sisters arrive at the London home of their aunt, Dowager Duchess Josephina, James is surprised to learn that the woman he met at the tavern is a companion to the duchess. The encounters between James and Meredith at Durham House are filled with longing and regret, as she frequently reminds him of his duty as a duke to marry a woman suitable to his rank, not a mere lady's companion. The ever-present desire and romantic yearning lure the reader into James and Meredith's story, which Rodale writes with great depth of emotion. This series finale will leave readers deeply satisfied.
