The Match of the Century

Book 1, Marrying the Duke - Marrying the Duke

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell's glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing… until the return of a rake throws a bride's plans— and heart—into a tailspin

Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London's most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict.

Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet "family obligations," now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire.

As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty...?

From Publishers Weekly

19 October 2015 – A delicious duke prepares to marry his perfect bride, only to discover that she's in love with someone else: his brother. Maxwell (The Groom Said Yes) delivers sweetly scintillating romance spiced with a dash of mystery in the first novel of her Marrying the Duke Regency series. Elin has been groomed since birth to be the wife of Gavin, the Duke of Baynton. A youthful indiscretion with Gavin's brother, Ben, quickly ended with heartbreak. He was sent off to military service, and she devoted herself to her familial duty. When Ben comes home after eight years of no contact, arriving on the night of Elin and Gavin's betrothal ball, it's not to claim Elin's hand but to blast Gavin for ruining Ben's military career. Even though he's grown up, at heart he's still a grumpy younger brother. Lighthearted fun perfectly balances the somewhat unconventional take on the mores of the time and the enormity of a threat to Elin's life. The focus on strong characterization sets the stage for an exceptionally cozy read and heightens anticipation for the rest of the series.
