SAY YES TO THE DUKE
Kramer’s gift is her innate ability to tell a story with unerring honesty, deep emotion and humor. Readers will laugh, cry and deeply sigh from beginning to end of this beautifully told, enchanting love story.
Janice Sherwood’s parents pack her off to the Duke of Halsey’s country estate to visit the dowager, secretly hoping she’ll snag the duke. The trouble is that Janice has vowed to marry for love, and the duke does not interest her. She’s far more concerned about caring for the dowager, who lives a reclusive life. When she first arrives, Janice meets handsome and arrogant servant Luke Callahan. He becomes someone she can count on to help understand why the dowager is kept hidden and what mystery surrounds the family. Luke recently learned that he is the rightful heir to the dukedom, but he needs proof and Janice might be the person who can help him get it. As they work together, Luke’s respect and trust for Janice becomes desire. To Janice, Luke is much more than a stable hand; he is the protector she has dreamed of loving. But what will happen when his identity is revealed? (ST. MARTIN’S, Sep., 400 pp., $7.99)
