Publisher Description

A new duke and a woman with a secret in her past get a second chance at love in this delightful and charming Regency romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the Windham series.

Robert Rothmere is hiding a past no duke should have endured, but he's not hiding it well enough. Sooner or later, his enemies will learn that he spent years locked away at a private asylum. To get their hands on his wealth, they'll try to send him right back to his worst nightmares. If Robert is to foil their schemes, he needs to marry a perfectly proper, blessedly boring, deadly dull duchess, immediately -- and he knows exactly which quietly delightful lady he'd love to entrust with that role.

Lady Constance Wentworth has cultivated a reputation for utter forgettability. She never speaks out of turn (in public), never has a daring thought (that she admits aloud), and never comes close to courting scandal . . . as far as anybody knows. Her path crossed Robert's years ago, though, and she's never forgotten the extraordinary lengths he traveled to keep her safe when she hadn't a friend in the world. She longs to be his demure duchess . . . but little does he know that to marry her would be utter madness.

A Wonderful Wentworth Story

Constance and Robert met and became friends when she ran away from a humiliating situation as a teen and was employed as a maid at the private asylum where Robert was being kept. Years later, after Nathaniel found Robert (he thought he had died) and brought him home, they meet again. Both Constance and Robert had harsh cruel fathers. Robert’s had him committed due to his epilepsy (falling sickness). Constance’s drunken father was physically and emotional abusive. The effects of this cruelty has stayed with them, but it has not defeated them. It has made them strong and determined to fight together for the future they wish to have. There are some serious hurdles for both. Robert, now the Duke of Rothaven, must survive a competency hearing brought about by a greedy solicitor, and Constance has to trust Robert with her greatest secret and regret. This is another wonderful story about the Wentworth family. As always there is drama, danger, secrets, tricks, and betrayals. There is also understanding, respect, determined support, and love. I enjoyed this story, and I love this series. I highly recommend both.
