Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three intrepid princesses find themselves targets in a deadly plot against the crown—until their uncle devises a brilliant plan to keep them safe...

England, 1888. Quiet and scholarly Princess Emilie has always avoided adventure, until shes forced to disguise herself as a tutor in the household of the imposing Duke of Ashland, a former soldier disfigured in battle and abandoned by his wife. When chance draws her into a secret liaison with the duke, Emilie cant resist the opportunity to learn what lies behind his forbidding mask, and find out what adventure really means...

The duke never imagines that his sons tutor and his mysterious golden-haired beauty are one and the same. But when the true identity of his lover is laid bare, Ashland must face the demons in his past in order to safeguard both his lady—and his heart.

Review:

"Gray (A Duke Never Yields) opens a Regency series with a novel that crackles with chemistry and romantic tension. Seeking refuge from assassins, Princess Emilie of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof agrees to her uncle's plan to disguise her as a male tutor to Freddie, the teenage son of the Duke of Ashland. The duke may be scarred and missing a hand, but he's an enchantingly honorable, brooding figure who pays a prostitute for physical contact but not consummation, lest he betray his vows to the wife who abandoned him. When Emilie, lacking her male disguise, is mistaken for Ashland's monthly visitor, she decides to play along, and the two begin a heated affair. Ashland has no inkling of any of Emilie's identities, even as he arranges for a divorce and offers marriage to her. When Freddie uncovers his tutor's true identity, even Ashland's cold anger cannot cool the flames between him and Emilie, especially when the princess is still in danger. Emotionally electric scenes between strong characters make this one a winner. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
