The Duke’s Disaster
Noah, Earl of Anselm is the protector and head of the family. Knowing his position, and the need for a suitable bride, he has spent the season weeding out the current crop to find the perfect, young, biddable bride. There’s only one glitch. She doesn’t realy want to marry him, and accepts another man’s offer. Now, with a season wasted and him no closer to the marriage he needs so desperately, he’s in a quandary. But, his intended target did have one quality that is helpful: her friend and companion Thea.
Noah shifts his focus to courting Thea, coming on strong and not taking her reticence as a possible problem, but mere missishness. But, Thea’s desires are to protect her young sister, and she knows that as the wife of an Earl, she is one step closer to that goal. She does, however, have a secret that she needs to share with Noah, but he’s not giving her the chance.
This is a marriage of convenience to a man who claims to not be nice, but Thea sees a far different man than Noah would hope to project: honorable, loyal and protective of what is his. Of course, her secret is revealed, and it is rough going for a while there, but what Thea has come to show is her inner core of strength and determination to protect her own family, and that common element between them becomes a small bridge to their happy ending.
Development of these characters was replete with detail and emotional moments that allow readers to empathize and understand their faults, hopes and dreams, and to appreciate them even more. With wonderful interactions, determined characters, revelations, descriptions and humor, this is an historical romance to please many.

Noah Winters, Earl of Anselm, spent months sorting and courting the year's crop of debutantes in search of an ideal bride. When the sweet, biddable young thing he selected accepts another's proposal, Noah decides to court her companion instead.
Thea Collins, though, is anything but biddable. She has learned the hard way that men are not to be trusted, especially the handsome ones. When she reluctantly accepts, Noah rushes Thea to the altar before she can reveal her deepest secret. Can she finally move on from her past, or will it come back to haunt her?
