Image of The Wicked Ways of a Duke

The Girl-Bachelors are back with a Cinderella tale to warm the heart and soul of readers. Guhrke is a master at steaming up the pages and bringing a tear to your eye with beguiling love stories you'll read time and again.

A sudden inheritance from the father she never knew takes Prudence Bosworth from lowly seamstress to wealthy heiress. There's only one problem: She must marry within the year or forfeit her fortune. Prudence has already seen the kind side of Rhys De Winter, and decides he's worthy of her love and money. What she doesn't know is that he's a cynical rogue. Prudence "caught" Rhys doing the one good deed of the year and has no idea that he must marry for money and she's his ticket out of debt.

It's the perfect match until Rhys falls in love with Prudence and she discovers his ruse. Now, he must be a real hero and win Prudence's love -- with or without a fortune. (Avon, Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
