9780062118196: How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days: An American Heiress in London

From USA Today bestselling author Laura Lee Guhrke comes the story of a bargain, a marriage of convenience . . . and the chance for love to last a lifetime

They had a deal . . .

From the moment she met the devil-may-care Duke of Margrave, Edie knew he could change her life. And when he agreed to her outrageous proposal of a marriage of convenience, she was transformed from ruined American heiress to English duchess. Five years later, she's delighted with their arrangement, especially since her husband is living on another continent.

But deals are made to be broken . . .

By marrying an heiress, Stuart was able to pay his family's enormous debts, and Edie's terms that he leave England forever seemed a small price to pay. But when a brush with death impels him home, he decides it's time for a real marriage with his luscious American bride, and he proposes a bold new bargain: ten days to win her willing kiss. But is ten days enough to win her heart?

About the Author:

Laura Lee Guhrke spent seven years in advertising, had a successful catering business, and managed a construction company before she decided writing novels was more fun. A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Laura has penned more than twenty historical romances. Her books have received many award nominations, and she is the recipient of romance fiction's highest honor: the Romance Writers of America RITA® Award. She lives in the Northwest with her husband (or, as she calls him, her very own romance hero), along with two diva cats and a Golden Retriever happy to be their slave.

Review:

“With her trademark sense of humor, lively pace and smart, sassy characters, Guhrke pens a sparkling battle of wills between a thoroughly modern miss and cantankerous writer with a dark past.” (Romantic Times)

“SHE’S NO PRINCESS is a passionate battle of wits and wills. Laura Lee Guhrke has a lively style that sizzles...a delightful read!” (Jane Feather, New York Times Bestselling Author)

“RITA Award-winning Guhrke crafts a sparkling and deliciously fun romantic battle of wits in the first in a new Victorian series, and it is an irresistible, laughter-laced treat.” (Booklist)

“Passionate and exciting, Laura Lee Guhrke is always a delight to read.” (Christina Dodd)

“Magnetic, appealing characters, delicious sexual sparring...throughly delightful.” (Library Journal)

“Laura Lee Guhrke can steam up the pages with nothing more than a kiss on the hand.” (Julia Quinn)

This dazzling and deftly written romance...will have readers torn and teary before the artful conclusion.” (Library Journal (starred review))

A spirited yet emotionally fragile heroine and a resourceful hero find love in this flawlessly written, lushly sensual tale that balances sexual abuse issues with flashes of humor and treats readers to a beautifully depicted and tender courtship...A thoroughly satisfying Victorian historical. (Library Journal (starred review))

This marriage-of-convenience love story has all the hallmarks of a delightful read! (Romantic Times BOOKclub)
