Lady Clara, the fan-favorite character from Loretta Chase’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Dressmakers series, finally gets her own happily ever after!

Convenient marriages are rarely so…exciting. Can society’s most adored heiress and London’s most difficult bachelor fall victim to their own unruly desires?

Biweekly marriage proposals from men who can’t see beyond her (admittedly breathtaking) looks are starting to get on Lady Clara Fairfax’s nerves. Desperate to be something more than ornamental, she escapes to her favorite charity. When a child goes missing, she turns to Oliver Radford—a handsome, brilliant, excessively conceited barrister.

Having unexpectedly found himself in line to inherit a dukedom, Radford needs a bride who can navigate the Society he’s never been part of. If he can find one without having to set foot in a ballroom, so much the better. Clara—blonde, blue-eyed, and he must admit, not entirely bereft of brains—will do. As long as he can woo her, wed her—and not, like every other sapskull in London, lose his head over her…



You know, the one thing that was bugging me the most abut this book was the word Duke in the title. The blurb mentions something about Oliver inheriting, but for a little more than half of the book Oliver's cousin is alive and kicking. And I had forgotten the blurb so I was wondering what was going to happen. That was the thing that bugged me. The rest of the book was my cup of tea and I had plenty of fun reading it. The romance and the action have equal parts and nothing was missing out. Clara wasn't spineless and I liked her. She fought for what she wanted and I liked how well she played Oliver and made him do what his male brain wouldn't let him.

The rest of the books in the series are on my to-read list and this book gave me the motive to begin the series which I wanted to read for a long time. I am definitely going to recommend to read this book even if you haven't read the other three books in the series.
