The Seduction of the Duke
The Chambers Series Book 2
When William Chambers, the Duke of Bedford, inherited his title, he also inherited a crumbling-down-around-him ancestral home along with his father’s gambling debts. The only way to avoid scandal and ruin is to marry money. He heads to Newport Beach, Rhode Island, where rich Americans maintain summer cottages, to marry—sight unseen—a reclusive American heiress nicknamed Frosty Franny.
Francesca Winthrop is determined to marry for love, but her nouveau riche, social climbing mother wants a noble title in the family to advance her own standing. Everything has been arranged but the marriage contract has one small loophole: all Fran’s children are to be educated in America. To return to her beloved country, all she has to do is become pregnant by her new husband, the sooner the better. Good thing she gets a little help from a courtesan’s secret journal….
"She knows how to make the pages sizzle and play on readers’ fantasies while incorporating intrigue and a solid story into her delectable novels."
Kathe Robin, Romantic Times Bookreviews
"The sequel to THE EDUCATION OF MRS. BRIMLEY, THE SEDUCTION OF A DUKE is a wonderful Victorian romance starring two likable protagonists who fall in love while she applies the courtesan’s diary to their relationship. The story line contains droll double entendres, a staple of Donna MacMeans. With a strong support cast and plenty of wit, sub-genre readers will enjoy this intelligent amusing historical."
