Dying For A Duke

(2017)
(The first book in the Regency Romance Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
 
The first book of the exciting new Regency Romance Mysteries series.
From Emma V Leech, the multi-award-winning, Amazon Top 10 romance writer behind the Rogues & Gentlemen series.
Miss Skeffington-Fox is about as far from the cool-headed sensibilities of Lord Rutland’s betrothed as you can get. But she just may be his only hope.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Extremely well written with superb characters and a plot which has many twists and turns. It reminded me of Georgette Heyer's 'The Grand Sophy' with more spice." ~ Amazon customer review

Introducing the darkly handsome Earl of Rothay, imperious, straight-laced, and morally rigid.
Mr. Benedict Rutland gained his title far too young. With frivolous parents and the responsibility of a large family of younger siblings, he spent his youth clawing the family fortune back from the brink of bankruptcy.
Now a man in his prime and financially secure, he is betrothed to a strict, sensible and cool-headed woman who will never upset the balance of his life, let alone disturb his emotions... But then Miss Skeffington-Fox arrives.
Brought up solely by her rake of a step-father, Benedict is scandalised by everything about the dashing Miss. But as family members begin to die, and heirs in line for the dukedom fall away at an alarming rate, all fingers point at Benedict, and Miss Skeffington-Fox may be the only one who can save him.

An homage to the queen of the Regency Romance, Georgette Heyer.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Emma weaves her magic throughout the book with enough twists and plots to keep you on your toes. I thought to read few chapters a day but ended up reading the entire book within one night!
The book is that captivating, interesting and the characters make you laugh, cry and ponder, all at the same time! When the plot thickens, you start becoming a sleuth yourself... your mind races, your heartbeat quickens, and you can't wait to read the last pages to unravel the mystery. That is Emma for you!
Full thumbs up, as many stars as we can give and a Must Read!"
~ Amazon customer review

**** Warning: This book contains a most scandalous Miss and, on occasion, is highly likely to include some mild sweating or descriptive sex scenes. ****

The Regency Romance Mysteries series can be enjoyed as stand-alone novels or as part of the wider series. If the full series appeals, the suggested – but by no means essential - reading order would be:
•Book 1: Dying for a Duke
•Book 2: A Dog in a Doublet
•Book 3: The Rum and The Fox
Happy reading! And please do leave a review if you can – it would mean the world to hear what you enjoyed most about the book.
