From a bride whose scandalous secret is revealed on her wedding day by a talking mynah bird, to a duke seduced by love letters secretly written by someone else, to an ingénue and a vicar’s wife drawn unexpectedly into the whirlwind of the London season, these seven novels are set in a world of high society scheming and passions hidden behind nineteenth-century propriety.
The Dukes and Desires Series includes: The Desirable Duchess; Her Grace’s Passion; Pretty Polly; The Sins of Lady Dacey; My Dear Duchess; Lady Lucy’s Lover; and The Scandalous Marriage.
