Summary
Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, never intended to marry{u2014}nor add to the mad Hatherly line{u2014}but now he must honor his father{u2019}s debt to a social-climbing merchant or lose the family estate. A notoriously wild marquess, won by her father at a game of cards, is the very last thing Miss Alice Tombs wants. She{u2019}s spent the last three seasons repelling suitors in spectacular fashion so she'd be at liberty to explore the world. She{u2019}ll just have to drive this one away as well. Until Nick proposes an utterly tempting arrangement: one summer together to prove the legitimacy of their union, then Alice is free to travel while Nick revels in the time he has left before the Hatherly Madness takes hold. It will be easy to walk away after a few months of make-believe wedded bliss{u2014}won{u2019}t it? Alice and Nick are about to find out...one sultry night at a time.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Alice Tombs knows her father, Sir Alfred, is ridiculously lucky when it comes to cards, but it is just not possible to win a marquess. Yet he insists that he has won Nick Hatherly, the Duke of Barrington's son, in a card game, and he plans on marrying her off to his prize. But Alice has a plan of her own. She intends to travel to India to share the fragment of a rare Sanskrit manuscript she discovered; she has no intention of marrying Nick, an insufferably full-of-himself, all-too-sexy-for-his-own-good cad. But if agreeing to a temporary engagement gets Alice out of marrying him in the long run, what's the harm in that? It just so happens that no one knows more about getting a gentleman to break an engagement with a lady than Alice. The seductive elegance of Bell's prose in the third sparkling installment of her Disgraceful Dukes series (How the Duke Was Won, 2016), along with her deliciously sharp wit, will have fans of Regency historical romances swooning with delight.--Charles, John Copyright 2017 Booklist"
