A duchess in time saves a noble line...

In theory, the Duke of Candover is the most eligible peer in the realm. But in truth, he has a deep aversion to the merest hint of marriage, not to mention two botched engagements which have marked his jaded soul. Now, after a debauched bachelor party that causes public outcry, the Prince Regent is demanding that it's Candover's turn to be brought to heel. And Prinny secretly believes that Isabelle Tremont, the Duchess of March, is precisely the lady up to the challenge.

Isabelle must marry, but a day of reckoning with the man she's loved for years is her greatest fear. If Candover insists she's too young and innocent for a seasoned world-weary man like him, there's no shortage of other candidates. Gentlemen of prestige and position. Gentlemen whose attentions are driving Candoverto jealous distraction. Yet one abandoned moment under the stars hints that if they can put aside pride and duty, then a love once denied might just be their destiny

Calliope let out a long-suffering sigh like a master. “Honestly, have you not ever wondered what is going on in that colossal skull of his?”

Forever. “You know, Calliope, for one who claims not to esteem the man, you can’t seem to stop talking about him. One might think you actually like him.”
“I refuse to like someone who always makes us wait forever and a day until His Highness decides he will condescend to give a person fifteen minutes of his time. And not a minute more by the by.” She smiled. “I’ve timed it.”
“I realize you’ve never been more than a dozen miles from Portsmouth, but do you think you could make more of an effort to embrace the ways of Town?”
“Does it include kowtowing?”
“Are you going to send me home if I don’t?”
“Liar,” her cousin retorted with a mischievous gleam.
Isabelle stuck out her tongue. She knew how to lance a Parthian shot with the best of them.
Calliope nearly choked with laughter.
Lord, Isabelle hadn’t stuck out her tongue since the day old Hacksaw, uh, Miss Hackett had nearly yanked it out of her mouth.
Calliope removed her spectacles and wiped her eyes with her hands before Isabelle could remind her to use her handkerchief. At least her expression had softened.
“So why must you see him by yourself?   My mother explicitly told me my main duty was that I’m never to leave you alone with any man. Mama puckered like she’d swallowed a peeled lime when I asked why.”
Isabelle smiled despite herself.
Calliope looked at her with knowing eyes. “You’re not going to set his servants to gossiping, are you? I do have a reputation to maintain.”
Sophia Nash was born in Switzerland and raised in France and the United States, but says her heart resides in Regency England. Her ancestor, an infamous French admiral who traded epic cannon fire with the British Royal Navy, is surely turning in his grave. Before pursuing her long-held dream of writing, Sophia was an award-winning television producer for a CBS affiliate, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO. She lives in the Washington, D.C., suburbs with her husband and two children. Sophia's novels have won twelve national awards, including the prestigious RITA® Award, and two spots on Booklist's "Top Ten Romances of the Year."
