9780062240125: Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove)

What's a duke to do, when the girl who's perfectly wrong becomes the woman he can't live without?

Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season--or any season--but his diabolical mother abducts him to "Spinster Cove" and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl.

Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn't dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week's employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother's "duchess training"... and fail miserably.

But in London, Pauline isn't a miserable failure. She's a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure--a woman who ignites Griff's desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won't be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess--can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart?

About the Author:

Tessa Dare is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances. A librarian by training and a book-lover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a pair of cosmic kittens.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Most mothers don’t drug their children, but then again, Judith York, the Duchess of Halford, is not like most mothers. If the only way she can get her son Griffin to do his duty and find a wife is by slipping a little something into his fish course, so be it. The funny-tasting fish explains how his mother got him to Spindle Cove (or “Spinster Cove,” as it is more popularly known), but what to do about the ultimatum his mother delivers once they arrive? Griffin has one day and one day only to select a bride from among the population of eligible ladies, someone whom Judith will then turn into a suitable future Duchess of Halford. Determined to beat his mother at her own game, Griff selects the least likely candidate in the room, overworked and underappreciated serving girl and farmer’s daughter Pauline Simms. Dare garnered a well-deserved RITA for last year’s installment in her Regency-set Spindle Cove series, and with its fanciful, My Fair Lady-inspired plot, Any Duchess Will Do is an equally beguiling blend of sparkling wit and simmering sensuality that is guaranteed to captivate fans of clever, sexy historical romances. --John Charles
