I am so very pleased to present the cover for book two in my upcoming Isle of Synne series from Grand Central Forever, SOMEDAY MY DUKE WILL COME!
Don’t miss the second book in the series New York Times bestselling author Grace Burrowes calls “first-rate Regency fun!”
Mr. Quincy Nesbitt fled England and his mother’s cruelties at the tender age of fourteen, determined to see the wonders of the world. The need to survive, however, quickly doused the spark of those childhood dreams. Now a man, with the means to see those dreams realized, he returns to London to say goodbye to his past and finally forge the future he’d always hoped for. But a final encounter with his mother reveals his brothers have all met their heavenly rewards and he is the last of his line—and the new Duke of Reigate. Lady Clara Ashford’s world changed fifteen years ago when she lost her innocence and almost lost her life. Determined to smother the impulsive urges that led her down such a path, she settles into a life as caregiver for her family. Now in London for the season, her sister recently engaged and about to embark on a life of her own, Clara feels adrift and without purpose—until Quincy arrives on her doorstep. For he is the one man since her youthful tragedy who has made her wish to shed the careful control she’s placed on herself, and to give herself up to emotions best left buried. Quincy has wanted the tempting Lady Clara from the moment he met her last year on the Isle of Synne. His desire for her has not abated, instead becoming more acute. But his feelings for her are a distraction he cannot indulge in, for not only is he not ready or willing to settle down, but the grim matter of his new position takes every bit of his focus.
When his mother attempts to force an engagement on him, however, and Clara does the unthinkable and attempts to save him from the unhappy union by claiming she and Quincy are already engaged, he finds himself then forced to play along to protect her reputation. But with temptation so close at hand, can these two wounded souls finally let down the barriers they’ve put up and take a chance on love?
