Dream of a Duke from Love’s Harvest: A Regency Romance Harvest Collection
The Duke of Eversley swore never to love again after the tragic death of his first wife Blanche, and he is still haunted by her memory. Still The Duke’s recent attention to The Mad Heiress, Miss Georgette Quinby, has set the Ton awhirl with gossip.
The Mad Heiress has been plagued by scandal for nearly a decade and is certainly not fit company for a duke. However, Miss Quinby’s acquaintance with The Duke is more than a simple romance. Unbeknownst the Ton, Miss Quinby has been helping Eversley to catch a spy working against their beloved England.
Eversley finds himself drawn to the passionate Miss Quinby, but it has been unfair to her lead on. The Duke has always been a devoted man. Devoted first to his late wife and then to his duty to his country. The Duke cannot possibly be courting the Mad Heiress; he has a spy to catch.
Angry and hurt by The Duke’s rejection, Georgette reflects such dismissal is perhaps an end to her involvement with the gentleman and his erstwhile spying activities. She was a fool to think he cared for her. On a visit to Vauxhall, lost in her morose musings,
Georgette suddenly finds herself in terrible danger, both from the French spy and from her own breaking heart…
She must find a way to warn The Duke…before it’s too late.
Both have sworn they will never love again…but together they will find that even the most broken of hearts can heal.
