THE DUKE IN DISGUISE
Genre: Historical Romance
Penniless Meriel Shelby takes a position as a governess in the Duke of Thanet's household. Though she enjoys teaching young Stephen, her curiosity is aroused when the duke arrives and she's sure he's not the same aloof aristocrat who hired her, but a far more sensual, though no less imposing, man.
The old duke's illegitimate son, Richard O'Neill, was called in by his younger half-brother, Cecil, to protect Stephen from an unknown killer. Posing as the duke should be easy, but Richard can't deceive the inquisitive governess who arouses his interest.
As the tension builds, so does the heated desire that springs forth between Richard and Meriel -- until everything explodes in a chilling climax.
