From the Publisher
Golden-haired Aurora Kimberly possesses only one passion--to live a simple life on the lush island paradise bequeathed to her family by the English Crown. Now her peace is about to be threatened by the appearance of Valerian Hawkesworth, Duke of Farminster, who has arrived to claim his own prize--an heiress promised to him in a marriage contract. But the free-spirited beauty has no intention of letting some pompous duke carry her off to cold and gloomy England. Her sister Cally, who has always yearned for the luxurious life of a duchess, agrees to switch places.
But can the sisters hope to play out this charade successfully? And what sweet revenge will the duke demand once he discovers the deception? Only a twist of fate and the power of an indomitable love can change the heart of a man scorned. . .
About the Author
Bertrice Smallhas written thirty novels of historical romance and two erotic novellas. She is a New York Times bestselling author and the recipient of numerous awards. In keeping with her profession, Bertrice Small lives in the oldest English-speaking town in the state of New York, founded in 1640. Her light-filled studio includes the paintings of her favorite cover artist, Elaine Duillo, and a large library—but no computer as she works on an IBM Quietwriter 7. Her longtime assistant, Judy Walker, types the final draft. Because she believes in happy endings, Bertrice Small has been married to the same man, her hero, George, for thirty-eight years. They have a son, Thomas, a daughter-in-law, Megan, and two adorable grandchildren, Chandler David and Cora Alexandra. Longtime readers will be happy to know that Nicki the Cockatiel flourishes along with his fellow housemates, Pookie, the long-haired greige and white, Honeybun, the petite orange lady cat with the cream-colored paws, and Finnegan, the black long-haired baby of the family, who is almost two.
