Death is just the beginning in this dark, chilling Gothic Regency Romance...

After the death of her beloved guardian, Miss Felicity Fields is left adrift, her future uncertain. Grief-stricken, she launches a plan to use her knowledge of alchemy to build a Philosopher's Stone, and bring back to life the woman who was like a mother to her. The last thing this blunt bluestocking needs is the return of Nicholas Harding, the Duke of Wycliffe and rightful owner of her home on the wild coast of Cornwall. He stirs an unexpected passion within her, and Felicity has had enough change in her life.

When they were children, Nicholas never understood his aunt's brilliant but unemotional ward, or her many strange scientific studies. He ought to take her back to London, so she can make a proper society match--except he can't stop thinking about her. But with the line between life and death blurred by Felicity's macabre experiments, can he convince her that she's no longer alone, and her proper place is by his side?

"Erica Monroe's voice is a breath of fresh air for the historical romance genre. The Determined Duchess is wildly inventive, with a romance you will root for!" -Jess Michaels, USA Today Bestselling Author

Editorial Reviews

USA Today Bestselling Author - Christina McKnight

Dark, edgy and gripping romance. Monroe captures the essence of the time period, while entwining each scene with Gothic goodness.

USA Today Bestselling Author - Christy Carlyle

Erica Monroe's dark, gothic romance THE DETERMINED DUCHESS is Monroe at her best. The characters are fierce and admirable, the emotions are intense, and the story evoked memories of a keeper shelf classic, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Monroe writes heroines who are flawed, gritty, and relatable. Felicity's uniqueness and tenacious loyalty make her one of my favorites.
