Outwitting the Duke

An omnibus of novels by

When the Duke of Danby comes to London for the Season, anything can happen!

Outwitting the Duke contains...

Because an unmarried Earl must be in want of a bride . . . Every debutante in the ton wants to be the Countess of Hartford - and mistress of Hartsworth Castle. Never mind that Hart has no interest in marrying just yet, the young ladies hunt him as ruthlessly as a pack of hounds after the elusive fox. What he needs is a hired bride - one who will give him some room to breathe, but is guaranteed to call it off at the end of the Season.

Because a girl with no prospects will do what she must to help her family . . . Miss Emily Spencer must do something. Her mother's health is failing and the notorious Duke of Danby is growing dangerously close. Why not hide in plain sight and pretend to be the Earl of Hartford's betrothed? And getting paid for her troubles? It's just what she needs to make her family comfortable again.

Because love comes when you least expect it . . . Sparks fly when the two put their plan in motion - and deeper emotions grow. But how can they be together when the path they've forged only leads to their inevitable break up?

Lord Giles Graves would rather spend his evenings in the House of Commons than circulating amongst the ton. Then his grandmother sends him on a fool's errand requiring him to gain entry into her former home. Now he needs an invitation to call on the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Minnet.
Miss Tabitha Minnet isn't particular about titles and income, as long as her future husband is kind, honest and an excellent kisser. The one she's particularly interested in happens to be the brother-in-law of her dearest friend. Lord Giles is quite the catch!
While pretending to be enamored with Miss Minnet, Giles avoid the poor, innocent young lady his great-uncle Danby has chosen as Giles' bride. At least that part is going as planned - until Miss Minnet appears to be falling in love.
Giles cannot wait until the Season is over and his life will return to normal.

Lord Richard Carew has just returned from his last ocean voyage with more cargo than expected - a fortune to call his own and a child entrusted to his care. Unsure if he should settle down or heed the call of the sea once more, he enlists the help of governess Laura Stephens to raise his young ward. As Laura quietly turns his house into a home and his ward into family, Richard wonders if perhaps his existence as a wandering rake is as appealing as it used to be.
Miss Laura Stephens has nothing to call her own - raised a penniless orphan, she must make her way in the world. Thanks to Captain Carew, she has a roof over her head and some measure of independence - as long as she doesn't do anything so foolish as to fall in love.
