The Duke of Blood • a Regency Novel
The mysterious Duke of Valois, man of many secrets, has come to London to start a new life without threats of death and duels at dawn.
Unfortunately, as soon as he arrives from France with his loyal valet, English society closes around him like a trap: desperate debutantes, matchmaking mamas, and what the English attempt to pass off as "high fashion".
Worst of all, the formidable and beautiful Duchess de Camerino, wife of his arch-nemesis, is already waiting in London to ruin his life one elegant ball at a time.
If Valois hopes to survive the Duchess's sinister schemes, he'll need the help of a sarcastic debutante, an adventurous spinster, a couple bottles of good French wine, and of course- his stalwart valet Bastiano.
