Publisher Comments:

“Wit, passion, and adventure, Elizabeth Boyle has it all!”
—Julia Quinn

New York Times bestselling RITA® Award winner Elizabeth Boyle is a wonder, and with Along Came a Duke—the first book in her delectable Rhymes with Love series based on well-known nursery rhymes—she proves once more that no one writes wittier, more endearing and original historical romance. Returning once more to England during the colorful Regency Era, Boyle transports readers to the small town of Kempton, where a local curse prevents the female residents from wedding—a fact that cannot deter a plucky young heiress who needs to marry to inherit her fortune, as she strikes out for London to wed a rakish and unsuspecting duke. Funny, touching, and wonderfully sensuous, Along Came a Duke is a prime example of the exceptional romantic magic that puts Elizabeth Boyle in the same master class as Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd.

Review:

"Boyle (Mad About the Duke) launches the Rhymes with Love Regency series with this delightful Cinderella story. The duke of Preston is the worst sort of rake, ruining young men with reckless wagers and seducing innocent misses during parties. Tabitha Timmons is an orphan who lives with her aunt and uncle and works her fingers to the bone as a scullery maid. A sensible girl who speaks her mind, she immediately pegs Preston as a ne'er-do-well. It takes a late-night dinner and an impromptu dancing lesson for her to sense hints of Prince Charming. Tabitha may be naive about many things, but she is resourceful and practical when it comes to saving herself from greedy relatives interested in her inheritance. Preston is amazingly obtuse about his feelings, but endearing in his efforts to make Tabitha happy. Readers will cheer them all the way to happily-ever-after. Agent: Karen Solem, Spencerhill Associates. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

“A young lady with a fortune is subject to all sorts of untoward attentions by the worst sort of vagrants.” Aunt Allegra

A lesson Tabitha Timmons, a penniless spinster, has neverneeded to heed. That is, until she is left a vast fortune payableonly upon her marriage to the very respectable Mr. Barkworth—a match that offers little chance of discovering exactlywhat her aunt means by "untoward attentions."

But the same can't be said when the Duke of Prestonhappens along Tabitha's path. He spies a rebellious streak inher that matches his own and he makes it his missionto save her from such a passionless match, interfering in herlife at every turn. All too soon, Preston—whose veryname spells ruin—has Tabitha caught betweenthe good fortune that guarantees her security,and his kiss, which promises an entirelydifferent kind of happily-ever-after.
