From USA Today bestselling author Sophie Jordan comes a scandalously sensual romance in her beloved Rogue Files series.
“Deliciously sexy!”—Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author
An urgent dilemma…
To save her impoverished family, Marian Langley will become a mistress. But she will not be just any mistress. Marian intends to become so skilled, so coveted, that she can set her own terms, retaining control over her body and her fate. Only one problem remains: finding a tutor…
A scandalous solution…
Other men deprive themselves of pleasure for propriety’s sake. Nathaniel, Duke of Warrington, would much rather be depraved. He slakes his desires with professionals who ask nothing of him but his coin. Marian’s proposal—that he train her without taking her virtue—is an intriguing diversion, until their lessons in seduction spin out of control.
And a most unlikely duchess…
When Marian is blackmailed into engagement by a man she despises, Nate impulsively steals her away. Though he never intended to take a wife, he can’t tolerate the idea of Marian forfeiting her freedom to another. But can he bear to give her what she demands—a real marriage?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Is it just us or is it getting hot in here? Sophie Jordan’s latest historical romp whisks us out of the ballroom and into the erotic world of courtesans. When Marian Langley’s father dies, leaving his family penniless, Marian turns to the oldest profession in the world to support her clan. But in order to learn how to be a courtesan, Marian needs Nathaniel, Duke of Warrington—a.k.a. “the Depraved Duke”—to tutor her. We loved Jordan’s bold departure from the staid Regency marriage-of-convenience trope. The Duke’s Stolen Bride unabashedly celebrates its heroine’s sexual agency even as she arrives at the conclusion that Warrington is the only one for her.
