9780062397720: How the Duke Was Won: The Disgraceful Dukes

The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive... but only one can become a duchess.

James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question.

Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong?

She is not like the others...

Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is:

* Be the perfect English rose [Ha!]

* Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure]

* Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try]

* Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting]

When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.

About the Author:

Lenora Bell grew up in a small Alaskan town by the ocean that still has no traffic lights or fast food. An English teacher with an MFA in Creative Writing, she travels the globe using music to bring smiles to classrooms. She currently lives in the Midwest with her carpenter husband and two naughty tiger-striped kitties. In 2014 she won the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart Award for Best Historical and her first Regency romance was published by Avon Books in 2016.

Review:

“How the Duke was Won is exciting and emotional--evocative of the best of the genre. If you’ve been looking for a bold, new voice in historical romance, the search ends here. Lenora Bell is it.” (Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author)

“Fresh, flirty, and fabulous! Lenora Bell is the new Belle of Historical Romance!” (Kerrelyn Sparks, New York Times bestselling author)

“Bell has found a new avenue to the happily-ever-after of the Regency era, and it’s one that fans will enjoy exploring. Bold and sweet as good chocolate, this debut romance will give Regency fans a new author for their must-read list.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Debut author Bell begins the Disgraceful Dukes Regency series with a winning tale in which disreputable but charming protagonists bond over a shared passion for righting social injustices....Colorful supporting characters, plentiful plot twists, and the trials of star-crossed lovers make for a sizzling and heartwarming page-turner.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“HOW THE DUKE WAS WON hooked me from page one with its humor, emotion, and captivating characters. Lenora Bell is a true delight to read.” (Lorraine Heath, USA Today bestselling author)

“HOW THE DUKE WAS WON is everything that made me first fall in love with historical romances while still being new and different. Trust me...you’ve been waiting for Lenora Bell.” (Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author)

“RWA Golden Heart winner Bell’s debut romance, the first in her Disgraceful Dukes series, is a knockout with its seductive combination of breathtakingly sexy romance, a refreshingly unconventional hero and heroine, and clever writing infused with droll wit.” (Booklist (starred review))

A debut that reads like an instant classic. Message to my readers: You’ll love Lenora Bell! (Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author)

“Bell’s talented debut is full of characters whose antics, from the clever to the ridiculous, will have readers laughing out loud. Charlene is smart and tough and easily steals the show with her gutsy nonconformity. Regency romance fans will delight in this expert start to a fun new series.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“Combine The Princess and the Pea with a dollop of Cinderella and you have Bell’s fresh, lively romance! Along with its carefully crafted plot, rapid-fire repartee, quick pace and delightful characters, this sensual tale is a delectable romance made to charm.” (RT Book Reviews)
