Tempest Manning knows exactly what she wants from life – or rather, who she wants: the dashing Duke of St. Helens. She only has to convince him that he wants her, too – a feat easier said than done. But an invitation to a house party meant to find the duke a wife means Tempest has more than enough opportunity to show him what a fine duchess she would make. If only the world would stop conspiring against her, she might have a fighting chance at making the duke fall in love with her.
Harrison Wright, Duke of St. Helens, is used to having young debutantes fall at his feet, though one girl does so quite literally, and on more than one occasion. He can’t quite decide if Miss Tempest Manning is clumsy or conniving, but either way, he can’t seem to get her out of his head. Or his life, for that matter. He isn’t certain what to expect when she accepts the invitation to a house party his mother is throwing, but he certainly isn’t expecting to fall for the dark-haired beauty, especially not with so many forces against them.
But as Shakespeare once said, “The course of true love never did run smooth.”

About the Author
Jerrica Knight-Catania knew from an early age that she was destined for romance. She would spend hours as a young girl sitting in a chair by an open window, listening to the rain, and dreaming of the day Prince Charming would burst in and declare his undying love for her. But it wasn't until she was 28-years-old, tired of her life in the theater, that she turned her focus toward writing Regency Romance novels. All her dreaming paid off, and she now gets to relive those romantic scenes she'd dreamt up as a child as she commits them to paper. She lives in sunny Palm Beach with her real life Prince Charming, their Princess-in-training and their aristocat, Dr. Snuggle.

Really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to reading Tempest's sisters stories!
Tempest knows what she wants--to marry the Duke of St. Helens. She's just got to find a way to bump into him and get him to notice her. Oh yes, she also has to get past his haughty mother and a house full of debutantes with more money and culture than she's ever had. No problem! Harrison Wright isn't interested in looking for a bride among the upper-crust ladies his mother has assembled at this house party, but the only one who does interest him is the daughter of a Shakespeare professor who literally keeps falling at his feet. Now if he could just get her alone and sort out all the problems caused by his brother, her sister, and his mother's schemes, he'd be a happy man. It's The Bachelor for the Regency set! This was a fun story. I enjoyed seeing how both Tempest and Harrison attempted to take care of the rest of the members of their families while trying to find love for themselves. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series to see what happens with Tempest's sisters.
