Only a Duke Will Do by Tamara Gill

Love may not win against the ton when a too proper Lord and Lady play by the rules.

Only a duke will do

Without a Season, Lady Isolde Worthingham captured the Duke of Moore's heart at a country dance. But on the eve of her wedding, a scandal that rocked the ton and sent her fleeing to Scotland alone and unwed, leaves her perfectly planned future in a tangle of disgrace and heartbreak.

Merrick Mountshaw, the Duke of Moore loathes the pitiful existence he hides from the ton. With a scandalous wife he never wanted, who flaunts her many indiscretions, life is a never-ending parade of hell. When the one woman he loved and lost returns to London, he knows he can no longer live without her.

But vows and past hurts are not easily forgotten. Love may not win against the ton when a too proper Lord and Lady play by the rules.

Sample text:

Mountshaw Estate, Wiltshire 1805

Isolde  Worthingham, the second   eldest  daughter of  the Duke of Penworth, spooned syllabub into  her  mouth  and grinned  at her betrothed, a man she had known for only one year, yet it felt like she’d known him her entire life. Merrick Mountshaw, the fourth  Duke  of Moore, was a gentle soul, much  like herself,  and  suited  her  more  than  she’d  ever dreamed. So much so it was almost like they’d been made for each other.

He  smiled  back,  his eyes sparkling with humor.  How was it that in only a few hours they would be married, finally promised to each other  before  God and all those they cared for most in the world.

Excitement thrummed through Isolde’s veins. She’d waited  for what seemed forever  for this day to arrive. How lucky she was to be marrying  for love,something that  she and her sisters had promised to uphold after witnessing such a union from their parents’ own match. And  she  had  found  it with  Merrick.  The  last  dinner together as an unmarried couple  carried  on around them, and  was enjoyable and  hearty. The  conversation was  of nothing  but the forthcoming nuptials  and the joining of two great families of southern England.The event of the Season some said.
