THE SHY DUCHESS
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
McCabe knows her time period, the mores, expectations and mindset of her characters well enough to easily convey the atmosphere of the era. Her light and sweet conventional stories have made her a fan favorite and she does not disappoint with another formula romance.
The ton may believe Lady Emily Carroll is an ice princess when in truth she is painfully shy. Her parents wish her to make the perfect match, but when it comes to talking — especially to men — she freezes, until the night she falls and is caught in Nicholas, Duke of Manning’s arms. Having recently come into the duties of his title, Nicholas has had little time to socialize, but he needs a wife and he cannot stop thinking about softly sensual Emily. Their courtship leads to marriage and happiness until a blackmailer threatens to expose Emily’s secret. (HARLEQUIN, Mar., 300 pp., $5.99)
