Description

Wanted: Governess for duke’s unruly children

 

Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have terrorized half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.

 

Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke

 

Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won’t be quite so easy to control. And there’s something else she can’t seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time Edgar is near.

 

Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny

 

As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she’s the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win . . .?

Praise For What a Difference a Duke Makes: School for Dukes

“Bell (the Disgraceful Dukes series) makes this her own story, piling on plenty of witty dialogue, unconventional characters, and hints of mystery to leave readers both satisfied and eager for the next in the series.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“In the first entry in her new School for Dukes series, Bell (Blame It on the Duke, 2017, etc.) reimagines the story of Mary Poppins for the Regency era, with delightful results that go beyond the typical fairy tale [...] A supercalifragilisticexpialidocious start to a new Regency series.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Sassy dialog, breathtaking chemistry, and a healthy dollop of hilarity result in a Mary Poppins-like success that takes the classic governess tale to a new level. Great fun!”
