9780062089069: Along Came a Duke: Rhymes With Love

“Wit, passion, and adventure, Elizabeth Boyle has it all!”
—Julia Quinn

New York Times bestselling RITA® Award winner Elizabeth Boyle is a wonder, and with Along Came a Duke—the first book in her delectable Rhymes with Love series based on well-known nursery rhymes—she proves once more that no one writes wittier, more endearing and original historical romance. Returning once more to England during the colorful Regency Era, Boyle transports readers to the small town of Kempton, where a local curse prevents the female residents from wedding—a fact that cannot deter a plucky young heiress who needs to marry to inherit her fortune, as she strikes out for London to wed a rakish and unsuspecting duke. Funny, touching, and wonderfully sensuous, Along Came a Duke is a prime example of the exceptional romantic magic that puts Elizabeth Boyle in the same master class as Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd.

A lesson Tabitha Timmons, a penniless spinster, has neverneeded to heed. That is, until she is left a vast fortune payableonly upon her marriage to the very respectable Mr. Barkworth—a match that offers little chance of discovering exactlywhat her aunt means by "untoward attentions."

But the same can't be said when the Duke of Prestonhappens along Tabitha's path. He spies a rebellious streak inher that matches his own and he makes it his missionto save her from such a passionless match, interfering in herlife at every turn. All too soon, Preston—whose veryname spells ruin—has Tabitha caught betweenthe good fortune that guarantees her security,and his kiss, which promises an entirelydifferent kind of happily-ever-after.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 173 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The young ladies from the town of Kempton never marry - not unless they want to bring down the Curse of Kempton on their poor unsuspecting husbands. But Tabitha Timmons soon learns she is to inherit a fortune - if and only if - she gets married to her deceased uncle s god-nephew. Never having given marriage an ounce of consideration, this reluctant bride (and test case) is soon off to London to meet her unknown intended. The rakish Duke of Preston has taken refuge on a stormy night in the same inn as Tabitha, and the two of them share an impetuous kiss. But when they reunite in London, he is shocked to discover that, for all her protests against marriage, this red-haired minx is engaged. She is just as furious to discover the man she thought might be a by-blow is actually a duke. But they cannot deny their attraction for each other, and it is up to Preston to convince Tabitha that he is the perfect bridegroom to end the Kempton curse. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780062089069
