When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:

- They will be husband and wife by night only.

- No lights, no kissing. 

- No questions about his battle scars.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:

- They will have dinner together every evening.

- With conversation.

- And unlimited teasing.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

Tessa Dare is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances. A librarian by training and a book-lover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a pair of cosmic kittens.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Dare series A battle scarred nobleman returning home from Waterloo looking for a convenient bride to provide him an heir is hardly a new premise in romance fiction but Dare's characters are likeable and interesting enough to make this book a finish it to the end read. She introduces Emma the heroine's friends who live across the square and each is unique and eccentric enough to be the heroines in the next stories. ** explicit marital sex.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars I am a little biased when it comes to Tessa Dare's books. Her historical novels are not always historically accurate and the dialogues are very anachronistic. That being said, I can't help but love her stories. Her characters are always likable and the dialogues are so witty. If there is one thing you can expect from Tessa Dare, it is laughter, love and then some more laughter. And that is exactly what I got from The Duchess Deal.

Editorial Reviews

“You’ll laugh and cry... while reading this daring reimagination of Beauty and the Beast that is pure romance at its best. Dare’s gift for crafting humorous repartee is matched by her talent for writing deeply emotional stories filled with steamy love scenes.”
