In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell's glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing… until the return of a rake throws a bride's plans— and heart—into a tailspin

Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London's most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict.

Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet "family obligations," now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire.

As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty...?

“sweet scintillating romance spiced with a dash of mystery [...] Light-hearted fun perfectly balances the somewhat unconventional take on the mores of the time...” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Readers who enjoy regencies seasoned with a generous dash of mystery and danger will savor Maxwell’s latest elegantly written romance, the first in her Marrying the Duke series, since it delivers not only suspense, but also the sort of richly nuanced characters for which she is known and admired.” — Booklist
