His Convenient Duchess

Harlequin Historical. Sept. 2022. 288p. ISBN 9781335723420. pap. $6.75. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Marcus Cranford is not a romantic, but a pragmatist. He’s terrified of going on the marriage market during the next season, and the only thing that will save him is a well-placed proposal immediately upon his inheritance of the title of duke. Lucky for him, there’s a woman who needs a quick marriage as badly as he does, though her needs are significantly more noble. Lady Rose Trafford must marry up as soon as possible in order to save herself and her sisters from ruin, but she’s bolder than most men will tolerate. This marriage might be convenient, but will sparks fly?
VERDICT Allen (The Earl’s Mysterious Lady) is back at it, creating Regency romances steeped in ambiance and wit, certain to satisfy fans of the convenient-marriage trope.
