By Meredith Duran

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A enchanting Meredith Duran novel: sharp, clever dialogue, a love story laced with humour, and a tale with depth and passion.

Meredith Duran returns with another witty, humorous and smart romance. Fans of Julia Quinn, Jane Feather and Eloisa James will delight in Meredith's trademark headstrong heroine, cunning hero and tale of deep emotional intensity!

Lydia Boyce is a spinster with sophisticated interests, for she knows that an unblemished reputation is the only protection in a judgmental world. But when a mysterious forgery threatens to sully her family and her father's legacy, she finds her only hope for salvation in a man who has no use for the rules of good society - or those who follow them.

The Viscount Sanburne is a society darling, but a dark past has left him aimless and uninterested in anything but self-destructive amusement. He has no interest in a bluestocking bent on justice - until she flashes a dimple, and he realizes that corrupting her might prove as pleasurable as scandalizing her does.

Biographical Notes

Meredith Duran blames Anne Boleyn for sparking her lifelong obsession with British history. A graduate student in the social sciences, she spends her free time collecting old etiquette manuals, guidebooks to nineteenth-century London, and travelogues by intrepid Victorian women.

The Duke Of Shadows and Bound By Your Touch ranked among the top 100 romances of all time in the 2010 All About Romance poll, and the USA Today bestselling Fool Me Twice won the 2015 RITA for Historical Fiction.
