How to Deceive a Duke

Lecia Cornwall. Harper Collins/Avon Books, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-220241-3
In Cornwall’s latest Regency romance (after All the Pleasures of the Season), Marguerite “Meg” Lynton immediately put herself forward when her skittish elder sister, Rose, balks at marrying Nicholas Hartley, duke of Temberlay and the so-called “wickedest rake in London.” Not only is Meg intrigued by his reputation but she also knows that, following her father’s death, their family badly needs the duke’s money. Similarly, Nicholas doesn’t care who he marries as long as his grandmother is pleased enough to save his estate from bankruptcy. He’s thrown for a loop, however, by Meg’s determination to get a child out of their match. As the two begin to fall in love, Nicholas uncovers dangerous secrets linking their pasts. Meg and Nicholas’s chemistry will draw the reader into a fast-paced novel that travels from the English countryside and London to the battle of Waterloo.
