(Girl Meets Duke #1)

Release Date: August 22nd 2017
When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules… 

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:
- They will be husband and wife by night only.
- No lights, no kissing.
- No questions about his battle scars.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:
- They will have dinner together every evening.
- With conversation.
- And unlimited teasing.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

Why I'm Waiting

To say I've been on a Regency Romance binge lately is a bit of an understatement. I've always loved this genre but had gotten immersed in YA so much over the past couple of years. I am so happy that I've found my way back and I also think my taste are evolving as a reader. I may just be a romance reading addict!


  1. This cover is stunning. I have seen a lot of people excited by this one. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. *happy sigh* I actually just read this book today and I loved it. I don't know how Dare does it! I've yet to read a book by her that I didn't love. I hope you enjoy this one when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a lovely week, Miranda. =)

    1. I'm glad that you loved this one! I requested it on Edelweiss but haven't heard anything yet.

      Thanks for stopping by!
