About the Author

A USA Today bestselling author, COLLETTE CAMERON pens Scottish and Regency historicals featuring rogues, rapscallions, rakes, and the intelligent, intrepid damsels who reform them.

Blessed with three spectacular children, fantastic fans, and a compulsive, over-active, and witty Muse who won’t stop whispering new romantic romps in her ear, she lives in Oregon with her mini-dachshunds, though she dreams of living in Scotland part-time.

Admitting to a quirky sense of humor, Collette enjoys inspiring quotes, adores castles and anything cobalt blue, and is a self-confessed Cadbury chocoholic. You'll always find dogs, birds, occasionally naughty humor, and a dash of inspiration in her sweet-to-spicy timeless romances.

Colchester Essex England 1809 Only a Duke would Dare what? Oh many things I can say after reading this delightful story. Victor, Duke of Sutcliffe and Theodosia, daughter of the local Vicar, had know each other as children before he left three years earlier after his father's suicide. He returns unexpectedly and she finds him in a most unusual place. She'd always had a tendre' for him and seeing him again, she only felt more. Victor was truly mesmerized at the beauty she had become and could only steal a kiss from her which was amazing for both of them! But in the background, Victor had a responsibility due to his father's will to marry before he was 26 (only weeks away) or he would lose his property to a cousin! He would not allow that because his mother would be displaced and he would not allow that to happen. But something is going on with the vicar when he announces Thea is to marry another and Victor declares that will never happen. Collette Cameron is the consummate story teller that always pulls me into the tale with her wonderful characters and dialogue. I always know there will be a new word or phrase I have not heard before, or a charming animal that melts the heart. I will leave you to find it yourself, but prepare to be surprised with the twist and turns that end in a heart smiling ending. PS Don't you love that cover Lori Dykes

Only a duke would dare to return to the home that holds painful memories and requests the vicar perform his wedding ceremony…with no bride in mind. A daughter, long confined by the restrictions of her vicar father, is torn between her family duty or following her heart. Collette Cameron writes a sweet tale of love crossing classes and that some things are not what they seem. Ms. Cameron’s unique writing makes our hero’s determination and our heroine’s angst jump from the pages. And the villain….I could feel the slime rolling off him {shudder}. From a drunk duke at the start of our story to the final happily ever after this is a tale that will have you laughing, crying, and wanting to hurt specific characters.

Theadosia, the daughter of the local vicar, takes care of the former Duke of Sutcliffe’s grave, and generally does what is expected of her since her father is rather strict. She comes across Victor while tending to the grave and having harbored a tendré for Victor since childhood she is more enamored with him now. However, he is a duke and as such, is too far above her station for a match to ever occur. Victor returns to Colchester to finally deal with his father’s death and find a bride. His father’s will stated he needed to marry before his 26th birthday, which is only a few weeks away, or the estate would fall to a cousin. Victor’s plans are to quickly find a bride and marry, settle her in the manor house, and then go back to his life in London. Well, that was until he met Thea! Now he has quite the quandary – stick to his plans of a marriage of convenience or try to convince Thea to marry him. Victor plans a ball to meet all the eligible women in the area. He enlists the aid of his mother, the Dowager Duchess (a wonderful character, by the way), for planning the party, and she asks Thea for help as well. She is being asked to help plan a party for him? Oh my! Thea’s father has plans for her to marry the new curate, but the man makes Thea’s skin crawl. When she tries to explain this to her father, he does not seem to care and insists she marry. Victor senses something afoul between Thea’s father and the curate, but what? They have worked together for just a short period of time. Only a Duke Would Dare is the second novella in the Seductive Scoundrels series, and although some characters flow from one story to another, the books can be read alone. It is a wonderful story with romance, death, intrigue, blackmail, remorse, loving extended-family members, and a skin-crawling creepy villain for good measure. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and eagerly await the next book in the series!! I was gifted a copy of the book but voluntarily give my own opinions and review.

Victor Nathaniel Horatio, the Duke of Sutcliffe has come home after an extended absence to find a bride by his birthday (a stipulation in his father’s will). He also to hopes to find something that will help him understand his father’s suicide. Theadosia Brentwood is the local vicar’s daughter. Victor and Thea are childhood friends. When they are reunited, they get to know each other again and begin to fall in love. However, there are some rather serious obstacles in their way. Now what happens? It doesn’t look like a happily ever after. This is a delightful story with likeable characters and an interesting storyline. There are a few twists and turns, and a very creative comeuppance for the villain. I enjoyed the story and recommend it.

I loved this story. Theadosia Brentwood is a vicar’s daughter and she has a secret. She has been secretly in love with Victor Nathaniel Horatio, the Duke of Sutcliffe for many years. But why would a Duke ever want a lowly vicar’s daughter? When Theadosia’s family is threatened only the Duke can save them. Only A Duke Would Dare is a wonderful story of love and forgiveness. It is a very quick read and perfect for an afternoon on the couch.
