Spinsters of the North
The Hidden Duchess
The Duke is an odious man.
To keep her father from hanging, Caroline must marry this repulsive man. Unless fate steps in and lends a hand, she will be miserable for the rest of her life.
Fate does step in, but only to muck up the works.
Caroline is thrust into a seedy world where she must struggle to survive.
Love is the furthest thing from her mind, as she scrubs chamber pots. But love sometimes grows in the most inhospitable environs and friendships are forged in fire and pain. Sometimes it takes a long while to get to that happily ever after, but that makes it all the sweeter.
