Add To

Take an arranged marriage, add a damaged duke who doesn’t wish to marry, and an independent lady intent on her own pursuits. Stir in an explosive, passionate attraction. Sparks fly!

Welcome to book one in this exciting new series by Maggi Andersen! Read for Free in Kindle Unlimited!

Lady Nellie Dountry, and Charles, His Grace, Duke of Shewsbury have had their hearts broken in the past. Neither is prepared to chance love again. When they are compelled to marry because of an agreement made long ago by their fathers, they are both determined to resist falling in love. Convinced that it’s mere desire which draws them together, both are surprised by their jealousy.

Nellie finds Charles irresistibly attractive, but other women do too. They circle like sharks. Aware that Charles’s former fiancée, who had broken his heart some years ago, is now a widow and on the hunt for a lover, Nellie struggles to trust him while she fears she is falling in love with him.

Charles was more than pleased with his choice of bride, but he wishes she wasn’t so difficult to understand. One minute she’s hot for him, the next as remote from him as a chalet in the Alps. Why he wants to get close surprises him; he planned for his marriage to be little more than one of polite indifference. But Nellie is so dashed beguiling!


Lady Nellie Dountry is not happy about the arranged marriage she is facing,  especially when she hears to rumors about her intended groom.  
Charles Glazebrook,  Duke of Shewsbury is prepared to honour the arrangement that his father made,  so long as the woman in question agrees.  He will not risk his heart again so if he can get along with Lady Nellie it's fine. 
When two people enter an arranged marriage there are no guarantees.  They don't know each other well enough to trust.  Good intentions and family support can help make it work.  
An entertaining historical romance.

Her novels are still adventure stories, but also seductive romances. Georgette Heyer and Victoria Holt among others, inspired her Regencies and she also writes contemporary romantic suspense, darker, Victorian mysteries and young adult novels.
