Image of The Heart of a Duke

Tender passion, suspense and adventure propel the story along at a fine pace. Morgan’s talents lie in creating realistic characters — a feisty heroine, honorable hero and despicable villain — and then placing them into a smartly written plot. There’s a bright future ahead for this newcomer.

Lady Julia Chandler is tired of waiting for her fiancé, Edmund, Duke of Bedford, to post the banns; so she decides to find him, kiss him and wed him — too bad the man she kisses isn’t him. Lord Daniel Bryant, his identical twin, has been in America making a new life. Daniel comes home because of a cryptic note from his father’s former solicitor and to uncover who is trying to kill him. Julia’s kiss sets him on another path — winning her heart. Julia is stunned by the power of their kiss. Rekindling their friendship forces her to reevaluate her feelings for Edmund since Daniel has stolen her heart. Together they expose a dark secret, fight evil and claim their destiny.
