Honor, Duty, Love - Can a Broken Duke ever be Mended? "Well, I do not feel like marrying." Duke Harcourt Beckleham could not think of any woman who could tempt him to marry -- yet he knew that he must. For the sake of the duchy and for the sake of his sisters, he must bring much needed income into the estate. Harry Beckleham was a solider, much more at home fighting Napoleons troops than making polite conversation with the ton. However, he understood that as the Duke of Arleton he had duties. An overheard conversation between his sisters brought home just how real it all was. "I shall just pretend to be passionate about the older fashions. After all, I still have some very beautiful gowns." Edith was as bright and light as always. "That's not what others will see, darling," Georgian had told her. Harry knew she was right, soon everyone would know they were broke. This should have been his sisters finest season. They could not attend in old gowns no matter how beautiful. He would have to marry. As the nightmares of his past life come back to haunt him he escapes to his town house for one last week little knowing that it will change his life forever. A meeting with a local seamstress, a plot to destroy the duchy, and a lady placed in danger are all part of this light, clean, and fun historical romance. The Broken Duke Mended by Love is a sweet, clean, and wholesome historical romance.

"Terrific storytelling with lots of wit, derring-do, and tugging on the heartstrings!" - Grace Burrowes, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author From RITA® Finalist and USA Today Bestselling Author Margaret Locke comes The Legendary Duke, the second in her Put Up Your Dukes Regency historical romance series. For a Knight to win the Princess, he first must slay his dragons… A tragic event in his youth led Gavin Knight’s mother to whisk him to Rome, where he lived a simple but secluded life—until, on her deathbed, she revealed who he truly was: the Duke of Cortleon. Now twenty-nine, Gavin has returned to England, determined to learn what happened all those years ago. Despite charming his fellow lords and ladies alike, the new Duke disregards any notion of nuptials, as his honor first demands resolution--and retribution. Then he meets Lady Elinor Greene. For seven years, renowned beauty Elinor has refused all proposals, fearing marriage would curb her freedom. But when her family falls on hard times, Nelle must sacrifice herself to save them by marrying a man of means. A wealthy widower seems the logical choice, a passionless union perfect. Until she meets the Duke of Cortleon, and learns one Knight can be legendary. Soon Gavin and Elinor must each decide which quest is worth more: that for honor, or that for love... ___________________ While second in the series, The Legendary Duke can easily be read as a standalone novel - especially because this story turned out to take place before that of The Demon Duke (oops). Loosely based on the Arthurian legend Gawain and the Green Knight, The Legendary Duke provides adventure, mystery, desire, and betrayal in this satisfying blend of Regency historical romance with a hint of medieval flavor...and Arthurian Easter eggs pop up throughout! ____________________ Category: Regency Historical romance (and my editor Tessa says, historical romantic suspense!)
