The Duchess DealeBook - 2017
In desperate need of an heir, and therefore a wife, the Duke of Ashbury decides that Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress will do, but this seemingly meek girl turns the tables on him when she, after listening to the terms of their arrangement, has a few demands of her own. By a USA Today best-selling author.
When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…
Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.
His terms are simple:
- They will be husband and wife by night only.
- No lights, no kissing.
- No questions about his battle scars.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.
But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:
- They will have dinner together every evening.
- With conversation.
- And unlimited teasing.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

I loved this book! Tessa Dare's historical romances are full of strong women, engaging and thoughtful men and a ton of witty banter and humor. I can't help but laugh out loud as I read her books. I totally loved the lightness of this particular story and found all the characters to be very likeable.
