The Orphan and the Duke

The Orphan and the Duke

(2016)
A novel by

 
Basil Staunton, Duke of Darnley, a younger son and reformed reprobate, had his title forced on him by the death of his parents and brother. Now he has a dilemma. His twin sisters are old enough for their presentation to Queen Charlotte, a requirement before they can enter their first season. He has no idea how to prepare them for what lies ahead.

Amelia Mandeville, orphaned and brought from France to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousin, has always been told she's illegitimate. Treated as no more than an unpaid companion to her odious cousin, she knows as soon as the cousin marries, she will have no more usefulness to the family and worries she'll be asked to leave.

Meeting the duke at the dressmaker's shop is serendipitous for Amelia and, with her uncle's permission, she's allowed to assist the duke's sisters. Hoping she can turn this opportunity into a way to support herself, Amelia undertakes the task with enthusiasm.

What she doesn't count on is becoming attached to the family and her cousin's designs on becoming Amelia's employer's duchess.
