Sexy Sophisticated Historical Romance
THE DUKE OF DARK DESIRES
Book Four of The Wild Quartet
Wanted: Governess able to keep all hours . . .
Rebellious Julian Fortescue never expected to inherit a dukedom, nor to find himself guardian to three young half-sisters. Now in the market for a governess, he lays eyes on Jane Grey and knows immediately she is qualified--to become his mistress. Yet the alluring woman appears impervious to him. Somehow Julian must find a way to make her succumb to temptation . . . without losing his heart and revealing the haunting mistakes of his past.
Lady Jeanne de Falleron didn't seek a position as a governess simply to fall into bed with the Duke of Denford. Under the alias of Jane Grey, she must learn which of the duke's relatives is responsible for the death of her family--and take her revenge. She certainly can't afford the distraction of her darkly irresistible employer, or the smoldering desire he ignites within her.
But as Jane discovers more clues about the villain she seeks, she's faced with a possibility more disturbing than her growing feelings for Julian: What will she do if the man she loves is also the man she's sworn to kill?
AN EXTRA SCENE between Damian and Julian, the Duke of Denford, bridges the action between Lady Windermere's Lover and The Duke of Dark Desires. Read it here.
If you've finished the book, you may enjoy this scene between Oliver and Henrietta which was cut from my original draft.
"Fair warning, after reading The Duke of Dark Desires, you may be spoiled for a time for any other love story, for Julian and Jane blaze a path of pain and passion that is unusually brilliant, poignant, and unforgettable."
