The Dastardly Duke

The Dastardly Duke

Book 2 ~ Love in Disguise

“One of the most memorable rakes Regency fans will ever encounter. Yummy, yummy, yummy.”

— Romantic Times

Tormented by a dark secret, Julian LeFevre, Duke of Claridge, is a notorious and dissolute rake. His half-hearted attempt to reform his character has left him bored to death. To relieve the tedium, he wagers a friend that he can mold any pretty trollop from the London streets into a lady who’ll pass muster with society’s elite.

But Hannah Gregory is no biddable lump of clay. She has solemn gray eyes, a rebellious streak—and is deaf from a long-ago accident. And although she conceals her real past, she can’t conceal her attraction to the scoundrel who offers her a small fortune that could pay for a new medical treatment.

The charade might heal her, but it also might break her heart—if she forgets that this dark and dangerous duke is well past the point of redemption.
