Duchess by Design

The Gilded Age Girls Club

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


In the first novel of Maya Rodale’s enthralling new series, an English duke vows to make an American seamstress his duchess...

In Gilded Age Manhattan, anything can happen...

Seeking a wealthy American bride who can save his family’s estate, Brandon Fiennes, the duke of Kingston, is a rogue determined to do the right thing. But his search for an heiress goes deliciously awry when an enchanting seamstress tumbles into his arms instead.

...and true love is always in fashion

Miss Adeline Black aspires to be a fashionable dressmaker—not a duchess—and not even an impossibly seductive duke will distract her. But Kingston makes an offer she can’t refuse: join him at society events to display her gowns and advise him on which heiresses are duchess material. It’s the perfect plan—as long as they resist temptation, avoid a scandal, and above all do not lose their hearts.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 03, 2018 – Rodale (It's Hard Out Here for a Duke) charms with this captivating historical, the story of an impoverished English duke who sets out to marry an American "dollar princess" and a genteel dressmaker who prizes her independence above all. The Duke of Kingston would prefer to marry for love, but he's got dowries to fund and a mother whose fashion spending rivals a small country's GDP. He hopes for both love and money when he meets Adeline Black, whom he erroneously believes to be heiress Harriet Burnett, in the lobby of New York's most fashionable hotel. Once his misapprehension is corrected, Kingston cuts a swath through Manhattan's most eligible but he can't forget Adeline. After a group of subversive suffragettes sets up Adeline with her own shop, she believes she has it all but Kingston reminds her that she doesn't have love. Sparkling characters, able plotting, and joie de vivre make the first in Rodale's Gilded Age Girls Club an utterly enjoyable standout.
