The Duke's Heart
England, 1864. Lord Felix Peergrave’s inheritance leaves him with little to celebrate. With his medical condition keeping him captive in his palatial home, what the twenty-one-year-old noble craves more than money is a bride. And while he’s smitten by a visiting beauty, he hardly notices the comely wallflower standing by her side.
Honour Seaborn is resigned to her dependency. Destitute and at the mercy of family after her soldier father’s death, she agrees to play chaperone for her pretty cousin. And though she’s captivated by the nobleman besotted with her vain relative, she knows her penniless status robs her of any place in his heart.
As Lord Felix discovers the real character of the belle and turns his attention to her demure escort, he fears being housebound would bore the well-travelled orphan. And believing she will never be a good match, Honour can’t imagine him ever reciprocating her growing feelings.
Will the courteous couple take a chance on the grandest of loves?
