Primrose and the Dreadful Duke

A Baleful Godmother Novel

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

Description

An irrepressible duke, a bookish spinster, a devious murderer … Regency house parties have never been so hazardous!

Oliver Dasenby is the most infuriating man Primrose Garland has ever known. He may be her brother’s best friend, but he has an atrocious sense of humor. Eight years in the cavalry hasn’t taught him solemnity, nor has the unexpected inheritance of a dukedom.

But when Oliver inherited his dukedom, it appears that he also inherited a murderer.

Oliver might be dreadfully annoying, but Primrose doesn’t want him dead. She’s going to make certain he survives his inheritance—and the only way to do that is to help him catch the murderer!

Length: Full-length novel of 85,000 words
Sensuality level: A Regency romance with steamy love scenes 

"I read it in one sitting. I also rolled my eyes and laughed until I snorted in an unladylike manner."
~ Judith @ Goodreads

"A compelling read with mystery and suspicions abounding. I could not put it down. Grab a glass of whatever you prefer and sit down with this amazing story!"
~ Barbara @ Goodreads 

Q & A with the author
Q: How would you describe this series?

It's Regency England with passion, danger, adventure, humor, romance—and a dash of magic. The stories are emotional, but not sweet. There’s sex, and my heroes do swear rather badly at times!

Q: Hang on. Did you say magic?

I did. But don't worry—the books are first and foremost historical romances. Only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows.

Q: But … do magic and Regency England go together?

Definitely! Many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together.

Q: How would you describe your writing?

Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments.

Q: Who would like this series?

This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop and humor of Georgette Heyer, the sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!

Customer Reviews

An amazing read!

Emily Larkin has once again swept readers away with a beautiful cast of characters who are wonderfully constructed, an intriguing mystery (or two!), and a stunning romance that feels natural and true. If you have read any of her books you are sure to love this one. And if you are new to Emily Larkin you may have just found your new favorite author!

My favorite so far!!

Read all in this series so far and while some are short and sweet, this one was the most difficult to put down. 👍👍♥️👍👍
