"A Regency romance for readers who enjoy a bit of suspense."
Anna Welsley was living every girl's dream. Engaged to the
son of a duke, she should have been content. But Anna loved
reading books and poetry, and would be expected to keep her
thoughts and dreams to herself for the rest of her life.
Oh, she was the last person who should be marrying a duke's
son. Or so she thought, until she met her fiancé Richard's
charming older half-brother, Ewan.
Ewan MacLaughlin had grown up without a father. He had been
raised in Scotland by his maternal grandmother after his
while he was still a tot. His father had already abandoned
them by then. Ewan wanted nothing to do with the duke or
his English holdings. He was stunned to learn that the
death had left him holding the title. As far as he was
concerned his responsibilites lay with his mother's people.
He planned to collect his inheritance and leave
England as soon as possible. Those plans changed the moment
he met the beautiful Anna Welsley.
Richard is stunned as well, having expected to become the
next duke. When Anna learns that her fiancé is plotting
against his brother, she is conflicted. Where should her
loyalties lie . . . with the man she has promised to marry,
or the man who has stolen her heart?
Kathryn Smith brings Regency England to life in
ANNA AND THE DUKE. I recommend this book to anyone
mood for a historical romance with lots of suspense.
