Dear Lady Truelove . . . I have fallen in love, truly and completely in love, for the first time. The man whom I hold in such passionate regard, however, is not of my station. He is a painter, a brilliant artist. Needless to say, my family would not approve . . . Henry, Duke of Torquil, wouldn’t be caught reading the wildly popular “Dear Lady Truelove” column, but when its advice causes his mother to embark on a scandalous elopement, an outraged Henry decides the author of this tripe must be stopped before she can ruin any more lives. Though Lady Truelove’s identity is a closely guarded secret, Henry has reason to suspect the publisher of the notorious column, beautiful and provoking Irene Deverill, is also its author. For Irene, it’s easy to advise others to surrender to passion, but when she meets the Duke of Torquil, she soon learns that passion comes at a price. When one impulsive, spur-of-the-moment kiss pulls her into a scorching affair with Henry, it could destroy her beloved newspaper, her career, and her independence. But in the duke’s arms, surrender is so, so sweet . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Carolyn Morris draws listeners into the historical romance…[and] helps listeners envision the world of the aristocracy that the characters inhabit. In addition to voicing the hero and heroine, Morris does an excellent job with the secondary characters—from the haughty tones of the duke’s relatives to the mischievous voices of the duke’s nephews. Listeners will find themselves rooting for Henry and Irene to overcome their differences and find love together.” AudioFile
“Verbal and emotional sparks fly as Henry and Irene try to resist their inexplicable attraction—with very poor results. A fiercely independent heroine determined to control her own life and a hero whose rigid upbringing wars with his innately sensitive side are caught off-guard by their feelings and forced to rethink their ideas about love, marriage, and women’s rights. Verdict: This engaging Victorian romance is sure to enchant.” Library Journal (starred review)
“The plot line takes some intriguing twists, allowing for character growth and a change in how they view themselves and others, making this story highly appealing.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“In Victorian London, a businesswoman and a duke may disagree about everything and still find each other irresistible…An interesting tale from a well-respected author.” Kirkus Reviews
