London 1814…
Drake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love.
Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn’t meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture. She’ll never fit in with the ton, especially if they discover she’s been pretending to be a man within the scientific community.
As Drake’s family makes over Penelope, turning her from naive bluestocking to enchanting debutante, he is put upon to introduce her to society and eligible bachelors. Despite dance lessons and new gowns, Penelope is the opposite of poised and sophisticated as she stumbles from one mishap to the next. Why then, does he find it so hard to resist her?



THE DUKE’S QUANDARY by Callie Hutton is an delightful Regency Historical Romance set in 1814 England. #1 in the “Marriage Mart Mayhem” series, and what a beginning!

Meet, Drake, Duke of Manchester and Miss Penelope Clayton.

An enjoyable read with engaging characters, and an interesting storyline. If you had to choose between a perfect, society miss or an imperfect Duchess, which would you chose? Decisions, decisions!

Penelope is awkward,social butterfly she is not, but a botanist and a bluestocking. But enter Drake, to help her become a social butterfly and beautiful debutante.

Oh wait, he finds she is enchanting as well as irresistible. For Penelope goes from one mishap to another. Filled with witty banter, passion and the romance of a lifetime. You will not regret your choice to read “The Duke’s Quandary”. An enjoyable read! I enjoy this author’s stories, and this was  no exception.
