Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Felicity Langley had set her sights on marrying a duke from almost the moment she perfected her curtsey at age five. She begins corresponding with Aubrey Walworth, the Marquess of Standon (the Duke of Hollindrake's heir) and by the time Felicity is ready for her Season, she is quite confident she'll be the next Duchess of Hollindrake. But unbeknownst to her, she's been corresponding with the current Duke, not his heir. So when the real heir, Captain Thatcher, returns home from the war, he finds he's not only inherited the dukedom, but also that he's nearly betrothed to some unseen (and quite possibly mad) chit.

When Felicity finds this ill-clad, unfashionable stranger at her door, she assumes Thatcher is there for the footman position. Thatcher vows to set this impossible little miss straight, but before he knows it, he finds himself falling in love with her. At first, Felicity sees her new footman as nothing but a great employee and at a bargain salary to boot. But whatever is a girl to do when all she ever wanted was to marry a duke and suddenly finds herself falling in love with the unlikely man at her side?

Review:

"'A young society dame with a flair for matchmaking does whatever it takes to ensure her eclectic family's well-being in Boyle's latest Regency romance. After four years of corresponding with her nearly betrothed, the beautiful and resourceful Miss Felicity Langley is poised finally to meet Aubrey, the newly titled duke of Hollingsworth — and gain the wealth to take care of her family's financial woes. What Felicity doesn't know is that her pen pal all along has actually been Aubrey's scheming, ruthless grandfather; the real Aubrey, meanwhile, has been serving as an army captain under the name Thatcher, having denounced his inheritance a dozen years before. Returning to Sussex, Aubrey learns of the duke's arrangement with Felicity and decides to break all ties with her. But when he meets her, as Thatcher, setting off immediate sparks, both face a secret dilemma: Aubrey torn between taking a stand and giving in to love, and Felicity between overwhelming passion and the long-distance relationship she believes will save her family. A terrific crew of supporting characters keep afloat the mistaken-identity plot, making this a full, satisfying read with emotion and laughs throughout. (Sept.)'

After all, she's been promised to the very lofty Duke of Hollindrake for the last four years. Now all she has to do is meet him. But what Felicity doesn't realize is that she hasmet her dukeand#8212;he's the altogether too handsome man who Felicity has just mistaken . . . for her new footman!

By rights, Thatcher should immediately set this presumptuous chit straight and tell her he has no intention of honoring the arranged betrothal. But he's quickly smitten by Felicity's delightful determination, her irrepressible charm . . . and her breathtaking sensuality. Yes, she'd wed him in an instant were his true identity revealedand#8212;but Thatcher's vowed to marry only for love.
