A novel by

 
 
'A debut that reads like an instant classic. Message to my readers: You'll love Lenora Bell!' Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author



The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive . . . but only one can become a duchess.

James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question.

Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong?

She is not like the others . . .

Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke's proposal. All she must do is:

* Be the perfect English rose (Ha!)
* Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns (blast Lady Dorothea's sylph-like figure)
* Charm and seduce a wild duke (without appearing to try)
* Keep said duke far, far from her heart (no matter how tempting)

When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.

How The Duke was Won is the first title in Lenora Bell's witty historical romance series, The Disgraceful Dukes. Her second novel, If I Only Had a Duke, is out now!

'How the Duke was Won is exciting and emotional - evocative of the best of the genre. If you've been looking for a bold, new voice in historical romance, the search ends here. Lenora Bell is it!' Sarah MacLean

'Fresh, flirty, and fabulous! The new Belle of Historical Romance!' Kerrelyn Sparks
