Never Bet a Duke
(Wiltshire Chronicles: Dukes and Wallflowers, #1)
Every lady has want of a scandal…unless it results in murder.
To escape her stepmother’s matrimonial plans, Nora sets a risqué wager with Merritt, Duke of Roxburghe; if he can’t find her a suitable match by the year’s end, he must provide her with financial freedom. But if she loses, she must publicly destroy Tabitha Philbert’s reputation...and her own.
Rescued by Nora before the marriage trap could spring, Merritt views their agreement as an opportunity to exact revenge on Tabitha for arranging the deceitful scheme. However, after their bet is discovered, Nora’s intended fiancé—and his scheming sister, Tabitha—set out to ruin Merritt.
When her fiancé is discovered with a knife protruding from his chest, Nora is accused of murder and arrested, and not even Merritt’s powerful influence can save her from the gallows.
A captivating mixture of Tessa Dare’s witty banter and Amanda Quick’s steamy suspense that plunges the reader into a shocking historical mystery.
