After a wild, scandalous night, Rory Lennox, the Duke of Abshire, finds himself in the bed of his sworn enemy’s wholesome sister, Verity Fitzroy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lady Verity Fitzroy is sent off to the country by her furious brother after she wakes up in her bed with Rory Lennox, Duke of Abshire. Yet the independent, forthright Verity has no intention of marrying the handsome rake—even though she's adored him since childhood. Rory knows there's no choice, so he follows Verity to Derbyshire, determined to change her mind. However, Verity has far more serious matters at hand. In the rush to leave London, her precious cache of "The Duke Diaries" have gone astray—and all the outrageous doings of the royals she had penned in secret are now being doled out bit by damaging bit in the local papers. If she were to be exposed as the author, it wouldn't be just her own reputation that would be in shreds. VERDICT This lively, sometimes poignant Regency sparkles with humor and brings another delightful couple happily together, leaving just enough loose ends to tempt series fans. Nash (The Art of Duke Hunting) lives in Potomac, MD.

Sophia Nash was born in Switzerland and raised in France and the United States, but says her heart resides in Regency England. Her ancestor, an infamous French admiral who traded epic cannon fire with the British Royal Navy, is surely turning in his grave.

Before pursuing her long-held dream of writing, Sophia was an award-winning television producer for a CBS affiliate, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO. She lives in the Washington, D.C., suburbs with her husband and two children.

Sophia's novels have won twelve national awards, including the prestigious RITA® Award, and two spots on Booklist's "Top Ten Romances of the Year."

The morning after a drunken and debauched bachelor party, Rory Lennox, the Duke of Abshire, finds himself in bed with Verity Fitzroy, sister of his ex-friend, the Duke of Candover. Though it's clear nothing happened, Candover orders his sister to their family estate in the hopes that this scandal won't come out. He also expects Abshire to propose to his sister. What does come out in the press are excerpts from a stolen diary that detail the excesses of the royal entourage, secretly written by Verity. Verity has had feelings for Rory (who grew up on the estate next door to her) since she was a teenager, but when he is forced to propose, she refuses him. He has to work hard to finally get her agreement to become engaged, but she has no plans to marry anyone. The book started out slowly but ended up being a great story with likable characters who are straight talking and have a lot of chemistry together. Both of them had past issues they had to overcome to find their HEA. I especially liked how spunky Verity was.

This was a lovely fun read in the series Rory and Verity are easy to like and you want them to get their HEA Having familiar characters in the story is always nice Hope James is the duke who finds love in book 4

This was an interesting book. Verity is clever, witty, and funny, though not beautiful. Rory is clever and a handsome rake. Together they make humurous pair. I found myself laughing so much. An unexpected read. This is not a book i'll read again, but one im glad i did.

What was the big danger to Amelia? There was a lot that was never explained. Made for a choppy story.

This was one of the best Regency romances I have read. Witty and sweet. I see now this is book two of the series and I have to go and purchase the other ones. Thanks to Ms. Nash for introducing me to Verity and Rory.
