Boyle enchants as she spins a charming, poignant love story bursting with humor, passion and just the right amount of tenderness. A master at creating the perfect atmosphere and the most engaging characters, Boyle hits her stride with the latest in the Bachelor Chronicles.

Young Felicity Langley boldly writes a proposal to the Duke of Hollindrake, but it's his grandfather who gets her missive, and he's amused. He begins a correspondence with Felicity in his grandson's name that leads to a betrothal. When Thatcher returns from war and discovers he's engaged, he rushes to break the arrangement. His threadbare clothing makes Felicity think he's applying for the job of footman in her impoverished household. Intrigued by Felicity, Thatcher decides to become her servant.

Though she longs to marry the duke, Felicity falls in love with her inappropriate footman. As his deception continues, Thatcher falls in love with his own fiancee. How they manage to uncover the truth and find their hearts' delight is what makes this a true charmer. (Avon, Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
