When a daring effort to retrieve a family heirloom from a disreputable rake results in rebellious Francesca Dunroy's being apprehended-and ultimately bedded-by Justin Maddox, the new Duke of Colster, the requisite marriage is exactly what they both needed-much to their surprise. Thoughtful, insightful character development and accomplished writing are hallmarks of Virginia-based Maxwell's work. Fans who first met Justin in In the Bed of a Dukewill enjoy seeing how the Scottish-blacksmith-turned-English-duke fares in London society. A legendary sword, a bit of treachery, and English/Scottish politics add emotional depth, intrigue, and historical detail to this lively romance.
