How the Scoundrel Seduces (Duke's Men)
Pocket / August 19, 2014 / $7.99 print & digital
The third deliciously sexy novel in the New York Times bestselling Duke’s Men historical romance series, featuring an investigator who sets out to find gypsies—and unexpectedly finds love.
Investigator Tristan Bonnaud has one aim in life—to make sure that his half-brother George can’t ever ruin his life again. So when the pesky Lady Zoe Keane, the daughter of the Earl of Olivier, shows up demanding that the Duke’s Men find a mysterious gypsy woman, he seizes the opportunity to also hunt for a gypsy friend who knows secrets about George. Tristan doesn’t expect to uncover Lady Zoe’s family secrets, as well…or end up falling for the woman who will risk all to discover the truth.
How does the Scoundrel seduce? First, he’ll bewitch the pesky heroine with his good looks. Then he’ll tell her the news that she needs to hear, even if it makes her pout. (Think Rhett Butler telling Scarlett O’Hara that Ashley isn’t the right man for her.) Next, he’ll convince her with one hot make-out session that he can awaken her sexual desires. Follow this with him looking out for her, protecting her interests, and just being an all-around rugged independent man—and our heroine is successfully seduced!
