Description

Book 1 of The Duke's Sons series

From bestselling author Jane Ashford comes another brand new series of sparkling Regency Romance

Life is predictable for a Duke's first son
As eldest son of the Duke of Langford, Nathaniel Gresham sees his arranged marriage to Lady Violet Devere as just another obligation to fulfill-highly suitable, if unexciting. But as Violet sets out to transform herself from dowdy wallflower to dazzling young duchess-to-be, proper Nathaniel sets out to prove he's a match for his new bride's vivacity and daring.

Or so he once thought...
Oppressed by her family all her life, Lady Violet can't wait to enjoy the freedom of being a married woman. But then Violet learns her family's sordid secret, and she's faced with an impossible choice-does she tell Nathaniel and risk losing him, or does she hide it and live a lie?

Praise for Married to a Perfect Stranger:
"Marvelous...the perfect blend of interesting, emotionally complex, and open-hearted protagonists." -Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
"A touching, heartwarming story that] engages readers' emotions." -RT Book Reviews, 4 stars.
