When handsome army officer Avery Fox unexpectedly inherits a fortune, he instantly becomes one of the season's most eligible bachelors. More accustomed to the battlefield, he has no patience with the naive debutantes who fill the ballrooms of London.
Honest and impetuous Lady Lucy Radley is a breath of fresh air, guiding him through the season and helping him to avoid any traps. So when Avery is left with little option but to marry Lucy, he can't help but feel he's been manipulated. Nor can he shake the feeling that a duke's daughter should be out of his reach.
From the wildly beautiful Scottish Highlands to the elegant soirees of Paris, Avery and Lucy go on a journey that is full of surprises for them both. But will their feelings for each other be strong enough to overcome the circumstances of their marriage and survive the ghosts of Avery's past?

Lucy and Avery
The Duke’s Daughter is another wonderful addition to the Duke of Strathmore series. Avery Fox needs to deal with his past, both his family and the war, and the fact that he is now heir to the Earl of Langham. Lucy Radley, the Duke of Strathmore’s daughter, means well when she offers to help Avery ease into society. When an unfortunate incident in the garden forces their marriage, neither is happy. Then a funny thing happens on the way to the Scottish divorce. Is it really what they want?
The road to happy ever after takes the couple from London to Scotland to Paris where Avery hopes to face and come to grips with his war experiences. Lucy hopes it will help him forgive himself and learn to love and be loved. All along the way, they have the support of the Radley and Langham families. This well-written story of forgiveness and acceptance holds your attention beginning to end. Once again, Janine Haynes does an excellent job narrating the engaging tale.
The audiobook is a gift. My review is voluntary.
I loved the beginning of the book. I understood about Avery having, no confidence . after I while , I was over it. he wasn’t a strong man.
Lady Lucy made up for it. I love reading Sasha’s books . Will continue to Will’s book. 1 more thing. Epilogues should be the characters , not character of next book. Hence 4 stars
