9780061235061: Never Dare a Duke (Sons of Scandal)

An indecent proposal

Abigail Shaw is a proper young lady, hardly the sort to boldly offer a deal to London's most distinguished and perfect duke. But Abigail, desperate to save her father's newspaper business, is after a good scandal. She'd have the sensational headlines that would keep the ton talking—and the family business thriving—if only she could uncover the secrets of Christopher Cabot, the Duke of Madingley. What better way than a pretend romance? Yet, with all his seductive glances and stolen caresses, she somehow has to keep from succumbing to temptation.

Christopher finds Abigail—and her proposal—intriguing. A fake romance with the stunning commoner would allow him time to choose a suitable wife from among the would-be duchesses nipping at his heels. It seems like a perfect plan . . . as long as he can keep her from uncovering his one deep, dark secret. But as he falls for the cunning beauty, he will be tempted to reveal all—his secret, his heart, and his soul.

About the Author:

After a detour through fitness instructing and computer programming, Gayle Callen found the life she'd always dreamed of as a romance writer. This USA Today bestselling author has written more than twenty historical romances for Avon Books, and her novels have won the Holt Medallion, the Laurel Wreath Award, the Booksellers' Best Award, and been translated into eleven different languages. The mother of three grown children, an avid crafter, singer, and outdoor enthusiast, Gayle lives in Central New York with her dog, Uma, and her husband, Jim the Romance Hero. She also writes contemporary romances as Emma Cane.

From Publishers Weekly:

Only a predictable ending mars this smoky Victorian romance, a follow-up to 2008's Never Trust a Scoundrel. Outspoken, progressive Abigail Shaw has reluctantly decided that society gossip is the only thing that will bring readers back to her father's dying newspaper. A rumor from a friend mentions Christopher Cabot, the duke of Madingley, so Abigail sneaks into his sister's debut. When she finds the duke hiding from two marriage-minded ladies, Abigail brazenly offers to play the role of his lover, keeping his preying suitors at bay while learning more about his secret past. As they play their roles to perfection, their sham relationship grows into something genuine, until a malicious reporter resolves to disgrace the duke and Abby's true identity is revealed. While the story's finale is scripted and cheesy, readers will enjoy the preceding trysts, secrets and passion. (Dec.)
