If I Were a Duke (Duke's Club #9)
by Eva Devon
Lady Eleanor Paisley always does the right thing. After all, her work with the tenants on her guardian’s land is the only thing that has made her lonely, orphaned life bearable. So, when she’s informed she’d been matched with the new Duke of Ayr, a dissolute but oh so charming rake, she knows she can’t say no, but she doesn’t approve of her intended. Not at all. Yet, when she meets the recently elevated Anthony Burke, she discovers that while he might be a man of sin, his heart is kinder than any she’s ever met. But will a lifetime of loss prevent her from taking a chance at love with her handsome, seductive husband or will she give in to temptation?
A Charming Rake:
Anthony Burke hasn’t always led a charmed life. Once, he lived in poverty and knew the violence this world has to offer. But now, ascending to the title of duke, he’s as charming as they come, for he’s never let the dark side of life get him down. So, when he is informed he’s too marry the terribly proper Lady Eleanor, he’s not thrilled, but being a man of optimism, he knows exactly what he must do. Seduce his own wife. When he discovers that behind her prim, distant facade is a woman suffering from too much loss, he vows to show her happiness and to teach her that love always triumphs in the end. But even Anthony’s optimism might not win the day if Eleanor will not let him shine love into her life.
