Welcome to book 1 in a new series “The Husband Dilemma” by USA Today Bestselling Authors Mary Lancaster and Violetta Rand!
Young women in need of second chances find sympathy and assistance with the enigmatic Lady Whitmore in her seaside castle and village. The ultimate goal, to find husbands for these rejected ladies of the ton.
Yet, not every young woman is motivated by the same emotions, for some of these ladies possess rakish hearts that can only be tamed by true love.
Her voice is pure, her motives wicked.
Lady Sarah Merrington will never forget being spurned by the duke she was supposed to marry. After all, that is the very reason she finds herself as a personal guest to the enigmatic Lady Whitmore in her village on the coast, a place of sanctuary where a lady might learn new accomplishments and, perhaps, the necessary skills to charm the elites of society. And Sarah is determined to reinvent herself so she can seek satisfaction, if not a bit of feminine revenge against the Duke of Vexen.
Leonard Blackmore, the Duke of Vexen, is invited to host a charitable event in a place he’s never heard of before and by a lady he’s never met. Pleased by the opportunity, he accepts the invitation only to find his gracious hostess, Lady Whitmore, is not only a fellow patron to the arts but provides second chances to young ladies who simply need a helping hand. Unexpectedly, the duke meets a beautiful woman who sings like an angel. He swears he’s seen her before but can’t quite remember where or when. It doesn’t matter, for she’s captured his deep interest, and he always gets what he wants.
Sarah can’t believe her duke has arrived, giving her the chance to fulfill her dream for revenge. But the more she’s around him, the more she admires and likes him. And it’s only a matter of time before he realizes who she is.
Will Sarah take advantage of the perfect opportunity to fool her duke, or will she forgive and forget in order to give love a second chance?
