"A Regency romance for readers who enjoy a bit of suspense."

England 1818

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 mother's death 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 man's 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 in the mood for a historical romance with lots of suspense.
