“Mad about the Duke is a rollicking good romp, filled with mischief and mayhem and delicious characters.” —Sabrina Jeffries
Rita Award-winner, USA Today and New York Times bestseller Elizabeth Boyle delights once more with Mad About the Duke, the second book in her wonderfully creative, wickedly fun Widows of Standon historical romance series. It is a delectable tale of an intrepid young woman who employs an incognito duke—whom she mistakenly believes to be a common solicitor—in her quest to land a titled second husband. Featuring characters from her popular Bachelor Chronicles, Boyle proves once again to be one of todays most imaginative writers of romantic fiction. Fans of the sensual, fast-paced historical romance of Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd will, likewise, be Mad About the Duke.
madness \mad-nes\ n (14c): the quality or state of being mad:a: rage b: insanity c: extreme folly d: ecstasy, enthusiasm.
And, added in the margins of the dictionary owned by James Tremont, the 9th Duke of Parkerton, one additional definition:
e: the state of finding oneself mistaken for a solicitor by a duke-hunting beauty who needs to be enthusiastically taught the true meaning of love.
Rage, insanity, extreme folly, and ecstasy will most likely be involved.
