WHEN YOU GIVE A DUKE A DIAMOND
Galen begins a new trilogy, centering on a trio of scandalous courtesans who are diamonds of the first water and whose stories will leave readers breathless. Galen creates a lighthearted yet poignant, humorous yet touching, love story — with original characters who delight and enough sizzle to add heat to a delicious read.
Juliette was given the sobriquet “Duchess of Dalliance” by Prinny himself, but no one knows she is far more serious, intelligent and loving than her name suggests. William, the sixth Duke of Pelham, takes life too seriously. When his name is linked to Juliette’s, his life is turned upside down. She witnesses his fiancée’s murder, and William must reluctantly offer her protection as they investigate the killing. As Juliette and Will get to know one another, their desire kindles. But Juliette has secrets and, as her past collides with their hunt for diamonds, Will’s urge to protect her becomes stronger than his need for a scandal-free life. (SOURCEBOOKs, Sep., 384 pp., $7.99)
