Ursula Roarke is determined to wed THE DISCARDED DUKE (4.5), aka the Duke of Ardsley. She needs his purse to pay off the debts her late husband left her with in Ireland. When she discovers Damian's interest in racehorses, she believes her trap to be neatly baited. The first glimpse of his attractive bailiff sends her plans out the window as the pair's mutual attraction is undeniable. Will Ridd is a man without a past, at least with very few memories of one. Thanks to his efforts, and unorthodox ideas, what was once a floundering community is now a thriving town. Will Lady Roarke break with convention and refuse the Duke's proposal of marriage to be with the man she loves? Nancy Butler writes a spirited and enjoyable story and is sure to keep the reader on the edge of their seat until the very last page. (Aug., 240 pp., $4.99)
