MAD ABOUT THE DUKE
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
The Bachelor Chronicles and Boyle’s latest series combine in a story that showcases Boyle’s delightful and fresh sense of humor and adventure, poignancy and sensuality. There’s everything a romance reader craves and the deep-sigh ending is not easily forgotten.
As one of three widowed Lady Standons, Elinor needs a husband to protect her sister from her ruthless stepfather. She enlists the aid of Mr. St. Maur, Esq., to find a duke for a husband. When James, Duke of Parkerton, sees Elinor, he is stuck mad with love and allows her to think him a solicitor. Soon he’s engaged in undukelike activities such as birthing puppies, driving a carriage himself (with disastrous results), stopping a servants’ rebellion, gambling in Seven Dials and squelching the rumors of madness. What will Elinor do when she discovers the truth? (AVON, Oct., 380 pp., $7.99)
