The Desirable Duchess
Regency Royal 14
By M.C. Beaton
Read by Karen Cass
Delightful Regency romance from the author of the Agatha Raisin series; now a major new drama from Sky 1
Lovely Alice Lacey was a true Incomparable, and her marriage to the Duke of Ferrant was the event of the Season. But almost none realized, however, that Alice was secretly in love with someone else - or that she had confided her feelings to a clever talking mynah bird who determined to announce these intimacies at the moment of the couple's wedding!
Now the gossip mongers were relentless. Alice's marriage had started out and remained cold and impersonal, and her new husband was already rumored to be taken with another woman.
Before she even realized what was happening, Alice found herself in world of opposites: she found out that the man she had thought she loved was something other than what he seemed, and the man she had married was something far more than she'd hoped. Her last hope and redemption had to be convincing the man she had wed that they were in love.
M.C. Beaton is the author of both the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, as well as numerous Regency romances. Her Agatha Raisin books are currently being turned into a TV series on Sky. She lives in Paris and in a Cotswold village that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
