The Devil's Own Duke (Wallflowers vs. Rogues #2)
USA Today bestseller Lenora Bell returns to her Wallflowers vs. Rogues series with a romance between a lady and the scoundrel claiming to be next-in-line for her father’s title.
Lady Henrietta Prince is far too busy for romance. She's dedicated her life to turning her family vineyards into a profitable sparkling wine venture. But when she shares a thrilling kiss at midnight with a handsome stranger, she's captivated...until he claims to be the distant heir to her father's dukedom.
Ash Ellis is a gambler who lives life on the edge. Now he's locked his sights on a glittering prize and nothing will stand in his way.
When Henrietta is forced to marry the wicked rogue to keep her beloved vineyards, she vows that Ash will never have her trust, or her love. Even if his kisses are more intoxicating than the finest champagne.
His new bride is certainly beautiful, but biddable? Not so much. Ash will settle for nothing less than Henrietta's total surrender...but is he the one in danger of losing his heart?
Praise For The Devil's Own Duke (Wallflowers vs. Rogues #2)…
— Publishers Weekly
“Bell is skilled at crafting a warm world, populated with inviting characters. The dialogue is sparkling, lilting across the page... Love Is a Rogue is a love letter to bookish girls, a reminder that our greatest power often lies within ourselves—if we’ll only have the courage to unleash it.”
— Entertainment Weekly
"The second book in Bell’s Wallflowers vs. Rogues series is a charming enemies-to-lovers tale... With lots of winemaking detail and good attention to the obliviousness of the ton, it’s a historical romance with great depth. A sweet slow burn of a Regency romance."
— Kirkus Reviews
"With a perfect sense of aplomb and plenty of whimsical wit, Bell continues her Wallflowers vs. Rogues series in splendid fashion by offering readers a cleverly-crafted marriage-of-convenience plot that delivers not only a spot-on cast of characters... but also a generous dose of smoldering sexual chemistry and combustible love scenes."
