Exclusive Cover Reveal: Valerie Bowman’s The Unexpected Duchess!

The Unexpected Duchess by Valerie BowmanFeast your eyes on this! H&H is proud to present another cover reveal today, that of Valerie Bowman's The Unexpected Duchess. She just wants to help a friend get rid of an unwanted suitor; he just wants to fulfill a promise. Mmm, we already like where this battle is headed... (To bed, we hope!)

Here's the official description:

IN THIS BATTLE OF WITS

Lady Lucy Upton’s tongue may be too sharp to attract suitors but her heart is good, and when her painfully shy friend Cassandra needs help she devises a brilliant scheme to help her discourage an unwanted suitor, the Duke of Claringdon. Lucy will hide behind the hedgerow and tell Cass just what to say to discourage the Duke of Claringdon…but it turns out that he’s made of sterner stuff than either of them anticipated. And Lucy is shocked to discover that tangling with the tenacious man is the most fun she’s had in ages.

KISSES ARE THE BEST WEAPON

Lord Derek Hunt made a promise to his dying friend to marry the demure Cassandra, and for a man who wants nothing more than peace and quiet after the horrors of war, she’ll make the perfect bride. If only the impudent Miss Upton will let him court the girl! Doing battle is the last thing on his mind, but bantering with Lucy behind the bushes is too tempting to resist. And the spoils of this war just may be true love…

The Unexpected Duchess will be out on April 29, 2014.
