THE ACCIDENTAL DUCHESS
Genre: Historical Romance, England, Georgian Period
Hunter’s consistent ability to create stories with excellent plots and captivating characters comes to the fore once again in this fourth installment of the Fairbourne Quartet. Rife with strong emotions and a wonderful building of sexual tension, this is a romance to truly enjoy. Hunter’s fans are sure to delight in this charmer even when the pacing slows.
When Lady Lydia Alfreton is blackmailed over an old manuscript she penned, she believes the only way to prevent a scandal is to get the money for the blackmailer through gambling. When she’s unable to win enough, Lydia approaches Clayton Galbraith, the Duke of Penthurst, about a wager he suggested: her innocence against 10,000 pounds. When Lydia loses, it changes their lives. But Penthurst enjoys her company, intelligence, curiosity and adventurous spirit. Lydia soon realizes how deeply she feels for him but is afraid he might turn down any overtures she makes. They both learn important life lessons — and love lessons, as well. (JOVE, Jun., 400 pp., $7.99)
