From the author of the bestselling Regency romance trilogy about three brothers comes a novella about how their matchmaking mother found love.
The day was as hot as the pond was inviting. It’s not as if anyone in Little Huffington was going to happen upon a secluded vale on the Duke of Greycliffe’s lands. And Venus Collingswood didn’t want to get her shift all wet. It was the perfect setting in which to plan her lovely bookworm of a sister’s betrothal to the mysterious new duke arriving seven days hence. If only she had a suitable accomplice . . .
Andrew Valentine, Duke of Greycliffe, never thought arriving at his own household a week early would cause so much trouble. The housekeeper thinks he’s his own cousin. Actually, the chance not to be the duke for a while is a pleasant opportunity indeed. It might even help him interrogate the delectable little nymph he’s discovered swimming in his pond—if he can manage to get a word in edgewise . . .
Praise for the Duchess of Love Trilogy
“An engaging tale that balances greed, jealousy, and malice with humor and sweetness . . .. Readers will cheer.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Bedding Lord Ned
“A quick-witted, steamy romp. Add a touch of mystery and another bright tale of love and laughter is born. An engaging, and meddlesome, cast whips this lusty tale into a perfect heart-holiday treat!” —RT Book Reviews on Surprising Lord Jack
“Readers will love being treated to this lively, hilarious Regency romp in MacKenzie’s Duchess of Love series and will want all three books.” —Booklist (starred review) on Loving Lord Ash
I don't get much time to read these days, so I've been waking up early every morning in order to read The Duchess of Love. It was great fun. Loved Venus and the duke, and the secondaries were well rounded as well. Looking forward to more from Ms. Mackenzie!
This book could have been better if it was longer and the ending wasn't so abrupt. It's like something I'd submit as an essay when I had 6 hours to write it
