THE DUKE’S PERFECT WIFE
The unforgettable Mackenzies return as Ashley spins the fourth in the series into another mesmerizing, intensely emotional romance that steals readers’ hearts and minds. With her innovative plots and characters, Ashley pushes the boundaries of the genre and creates “keepers,” because they touch readers on many levels.
As the eldest of the Mackenzie brothers, Hart appears to have everything a man desires: a title, wealth, power and popularity — but he doesn’t have love. He can have any woman he wishes, except the one he wants. Lady Eleanor Ramsey was once Hart’s fiancée, and she’s the only person who knows the secret of how he kept his brothers safe from their ruthless father. She also knows how the loss of his wife and child hardened him. When she uncovers nude photographs of Hart, Eleanor hunts him down — not to blackmail him, but to help him find the person threatening to leak them to the scandal sheets. Hart wonders if she is truly honest or if the sensual challenge and temptation he sees in her are the means to his ruination. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Apr., 320 pp., $7.99)
