Overview

They say time heals all wounds ... but what of those left by love?

Having barely survived the fire that killed his family, Joshua Wainwright reluctantly begins his reign as the new Duke of Chichester. He is still recovering from his burns when he returns to Wisborough Oaks, the family seat in Sussex where the fire occurred. With reconstruction underway and a backlog of estate business to complete, the very last thing Joshua can handle is the sudden appearance of Lady Charlotte, the daughter of the Earl of Ellsworth.

Once betrothed to Joshua’s older brother, Charlotte has spent her entire life training to be the Duchess of Chichester. Now that the man she was supposed to marry is dead, Charlotte is determined to marry Joshua, for despite the horrific scars that require him to wear a mask over one side of his face, she has secretly loved him since her coming-out. Never mind that her father has arranged a betrothal to the Earl of Gisborn!

The duke has no idea it was Charlotte who arranged for his medical care and transport to London after the fire. Given his scars and the gossip mongers in London who refer to him as “His Grace with half a face”, he’s determined to spare Charlotte from having to marry him, even if she feels duty-bound to do so. But Charlotte, hiding a hideous scar of her own, will do whatever it takes, including seduction, to secure a marriage to the man she loves.

Will Joshua’s apparent indifference send her into the arms of the earl who has come to claim her? Or will Charlotte choose a different path? Love proves it can heal even the deepest wounds in "The Grace of a Duke".

    Excellent

    Excellent read, Charlotte was determined to claim her place as Duchess of Chichester. Since the new Duke was burned trying to save his Sister, he did not believe beautiful Charlotte would come to love him since he was severely disfigured. There is actually another main character in this book the other is McElliot, the Duke's best friend and land manager, he also handles Joshua's personal business when required. I love this series and Author. Highly Recommend!!!!

    This is the second book in this series.  It follows Charlotte as we goes to claim the Duke she was promised to as a child.  
    It makes no difference to her that the man is not the man who was originally to be the duke, that he has been seriously burned in the
    fire that killed his entire family and that he is not interested in marrying anyone.

    His Grace AKA Joshua has known Charlotte all her life and loves having her around.  But when her life is in danger--he sets out to make sure she is safe. This story unwinds along with the sub plot of  Joshua's friend and steward and the love of his life.  Who wants Lady Charlotte dead?  Will Joshua be able to get past his feelings of ugliness and inadequacy?  Will love save the day?  
    Read it for yourself  and find out!
