A Diamond for a Duke

Book 1, Seductive Scoundrels - A Regency Romance

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

Description

A dour duke and a wistful wallflower—an impossible match until fate intervenes.

Jules, Sixth Duke of Dandridge disdains Society and all its trappings, preferring the country’s solitude and peace. Already jaded after the woman he loved died years ago, he’s become even more so since unexpectedly inheriting a dukedom’s responsibilities and finding himself the target of every husband-hunting vixen in London.

Jemmah Dament has adored Jules from afar for years—since before her family’s financial and social reversals. She dares not dream she can win a duke’s heart any more than she hopes to escape the life of servitude imposed on her by an uncaring mother. Jemmah knows full well Jules is too far above her station now. Besides, his family has already selected his perfect duchess: a poised, polished, exquisite blueblood.

A chance encounter reunites Jules and Jemmah, resulting in a passionate interlude neither can forget. Jules realizes he wants more—much more—than Jemmah’s sweet kisses or her warming his bed. He must somehow convince her to gamble on a dour duke. But can Jemmah trust a man promised to another? One who’s sworn never to love again?

Wonderful Story

A Diamond for a Duke is the retelling of a Cinderella-like story by Charles Perrault entitled Toads and Diamonds. This is a heartwarming tale of a lonely Duke hounded by his family to marry and produce heirs. He is also being pursued by title seeking debutantes, in whom he has no interest. Jemmah is the younger daughter, neglected and treated as no more than a servant to her sister. These two have known each other since childhood, and Jemmah’s aunt is his godmother. In an attempt to escape the chase at a ball, he ends up in the library where he happens upon a sleeping Jemmah. Is it possible that these two friends could find their happily ever after with each other? Aunt Theo and Lady Lockhart, aka the fairy godmothers in this tale, think so and embark on a plan to make it happen.

A Diamond for a Duke has all the elements of a good fairy tale, a sweet damsel, a gallant rescuer, villains and fairy godmothers to thwart them. It’s easy to pick out the toads in Jemmah’s sister, Adelinda, and Lady Phryne Milbourne. I look at Jules’s family and Jemmah’s mother as bullfrogs. Then there’s Jemmah who has always loved Jules, and sparkles like a, yes a diamond. This is a happy and humorous story that will put a smile on your face.
