|To Marry a Duke|
I'm delighted to tell you that my third 'duke' book is now published with KDP. The first two are still selling really well and I'm hoping To Marry a Duke will do equally well. This was published by Robert Hale as The Mesalliance in 2006.
This week there has been much reported about a lion loose in St Osyth - which just happens to be where my book is set. St Osyth's Priory is a magnificent medieval building, said to be the best in Europe. I was lucky to accompany a private conducted tour around the buildings and grounds.
There have been reports off a large panther like black cat in this neighbourhood for years. Someone suggested this wasn't a panther but the lion in disguise. Lions can be very devious.
Lady Allegra Humphrey knows her place is at the top of the aristocratic tree and she has no time for cits. If she and her twin brother, Richard, Lord Witherton, the Duke of Colchester wish to retain their position in society they will have to make compromises. Self-made millionaire Jago Tremayne now owns St Osyth’s Priory, Allegra's ancestral home, and is determined to own her as well.
Rejected by the haut ton, Jago believes he has the perfect plan to ensure both he and his daughter, Demelza, will soon be welcome in the best drawing-rooms. Marriage is the answer! However, there are people who do not wish to see the union proceed and are prepared to commit murder to stop it.
