Lords and Ladies in Love #3
Callie Hutton
Releasing July 10, 2017
Entangled Scandalous

Four years ago, Alex, a second son, had planned a life together with Lady Patience. However, when Patience was betrothed to his brother, the heir, Alex left his family’s estate and joined the military.

Alex returns to assume the title Duke of Bedford when his brother unexpectedly dies. He is unprepared for both his new responsibilities and the reunion with Patience. The horrors of war are a heavy burden, and when he learns that Patience never married his brother, he is stunned.

Patience withstood the bullying of her fiancé and her father for four long years. She refuses to marry Alex just because he’s the duke, especially if he no longer loves her. How would that be better than what she has already endured? Promises made in their youth are not enough to overcome the changes life has wrought for them but love can grow and transform, if only Patience could believe that.


Lord Alexander Pemberton is the second son,  the spare, to the Duke of Bedford.  He has always been pushed aside by the Duke and bullied by his older brother.  
Lady Patience Browning is just sixteen when her family pays a visit to the Duke if Bedford's estate.  She immediately makes friends with the younger son,  not realizing her fathers plans.  
When the betrothal announcement is made Alexander's life will change forever.
The men of that time had a terrible habit of treating their women like brainless twits. It can cost them more than they could ever imagine.  
A lovely romance with a good dose of intrigue and characters who have a lot of growing to do.  
This is the first in a new series and I can't wait to read the rest.
