HOW TO LOSE A DUKE IN TEN DAYS
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
The plot may not be new, but this marriage-of-convenience love story has all the hallmarks of a delightful read: charming characters, emotional depth, sexual tension and just enough humor and pathos to satisfy everyone who loves to happily sigh in the end.
Desperate to save her reputation, American heiress Edie proposes a marriage of convenience to the Duke of Margrave. As a duchess, she is untouchable. With Edie’s money, Stuart is able to repay his family’s debts and go on safari. Everything is ideal for five years, until a mauling by a lion forces Stuart to reexamine his life. He realizes he wants a family and an heir. To salvage his marriage, Stuart makes a proposal: He has 10 days to woo a willing Edie into kissing him. Is that long enough to conquer her resolve and find love? (AVON, May, 380 pp., $7.99)
