The Dangerous Duke
the beautiful but impoverished Fenella Hawke takes up the
position of Companion to the elderly Dowager Duchess of Wyndlesham,
she is unprepared for the hostile attitude of the current Duke to this scheme.
She is also ill-equipped to deal with the overwhelming feelings she experiences
upon first meeting him.
The handsome and arrogant Devlin Deverell has wealth, status and a beautiful Mistress. A notable Corinthian, he has decided that pleasure is his for the taking, but marriage not a consideration for the future. Life and love are strictly under his control. His passionate response to Fenella's presence takes him by surprise.
Devlin suspects Fenella is not who she says she is and that she has secrets to hide. They try to fight the growing arousal, but find themselves drawn inexorably into intimate situations. However, Lady Penelope Vane, Devlin's extremely jealous Mistress, is angling for marriage. When she discovers that Devlin's attentions are wandering, she sets in motion a ruthless and diabolical plan to discredit Fenella, with the help of her friend, the rakish Sir Marcus Solesby.
