In this dazzling Dangerous Rogues novel from Tiffany Clare, a daring and dangerously handsome duke will do anything for the woman he loves—even if it sparks a scandal, in The Scandalous Duke Takes a Bride.
FRIENDS AND LOVERS…
As a wealthy young widow, Lady Jessica Heyer must endure the closest of scrutiny and most wicked of rumors from society gossips. Their whispers would be utterly unbearable if it weren’t for her oldest friend, the Duke of Alsborough. Jessica knows she can always count on Hayden. What she never could have expected, however, is that he is deeply, madly in love with her…
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD
For years, Hayden has kept his longing for his beautiful friend Jessica a secret. But now that she’s finally free to remarry, will she be willing to take their relationship to a more intimate level? He’ll get his answer soon—at a glittering masquerade, where identities are hidden, hearts are open, and true love is unmasked…in a single, shameless act of passion.
THE SCANDALOUS DUKE TAKES A BRIDE by Tiffany Clare is another exciting Victorian era Historical Romance. #3 in the “Dangerous Rogues” series, but can be read as a stand alone.
Meet, Lady Jessica Heyer, a wealthy widow and her oldest friend, Hayden, the
Duke of Alsborough.
Jessica abused as a wife, left nearly dissolute, under scrutiny by the gossip-mongers to the ton, and rumors twirling all around her, she must move forward.
Hayden, her closest and dearest friend, has loved her from afar for years. He will do anything to save her and marry her. He has loved her for years, but sat by helplessly as her husband abused and mocked her endlessly even after his death.
Filled with passion, a bit of danger, and romance. Can long-time friends become lovers and finally find the love they both seek?
You must pick up SCANDALOUSLY DUKE TAKES A BRIDE to find out their fate. The three books in this series overlap each other, with their stories. Except, you learn more of Jessica and Hayden in this one. Also, to me, this story is more about the romance between Jessica and Hayden than anything else. The characters are engaging and likeable. The storyline was interesting. An overall enjoyable read!
