9780446565370: How to Marry a Duke

Tristan, the Duke of Shelbourne is a man with a mission: find a wife he can tolerate as long as they both shall live. Love is not necessary--nor desired. But how to choose among a dizzying array of wealthy-yet-witless candidates? Hire London's infamously prim and proper matchmaker. Then pretend she's not the most captivating woman he's ever met...

Helping a devilish Duke create a contest to pick his perfect mate is the kind of challenge Tessa Mansfield relishes. Her methods may be scandalous, but she's determined to find the notorious bachelor more than a wife--she'll bring him true love. Yet when Tessa watches the women vie for the Duke's affections, she longs to win his heart herself. And after a stolen kiss confirms Tristan's desire, Tessa knows she has broken a matchmaker's number one rule: never fall in love with the groom.

About the Author:

Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the United Kingdom allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her Trouble.

When she's not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and, most of all, long lunches with friends. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Dreiling’s Regency romance debut is, in a word, enchanting. Tristan, duke of Shelbourne, has come to the conclusion that it’s time for him to beget an heir. Since he is a notorious rake, his access to misses suitable for marriage is limited. His friend Lord Broughton found his wife through a matchmaker, however, and Tristan decides to ask young spinster Miss Tessa Mansfield to find him the perfect match. Tessa agrees, culling the top 24 debutantes of the season for his perusal. As Tessa and Tristan meet to decide how the courtship should proceed and who should be eliminated from the pack after each gathering, they gradually fall in love. When only two candidates remain, Tessa and Tristan are caught in a tangle of their own making. How can Tristan honorably back away from his public courtship? And how can Tessa’s reputation in high society survive? Dreiling not only solves the dilemma; she also makes readers care about the delightful couple through their witty repartee and her expert storytelling. --Pat Henshaw
