ROCKLIFFE SERIES recommended by Hilary Rose of THE TIMES

Reluctantly, the Duke of Rockliffe is in the market for a wife. His requirements are simple; a lady who will occupy her position with well-bred grace and chaperone his sister, Nell – but who will not bore him to distraction.
Whilst accompanying Nell to what he speedily comes to regard as the house-party from hell, he meets Adeline Kendrick - acid-tongued and by no means beautiful, yet somehow alluring. Worse still, her relatives are quite deplorable - from Cousin Diana, a spoiled and ill-natured beauty, to manipulative and sadistic Uncle Richard. As a prospective bride, therefore, Adeline is out of the question. Until, that is, a bizarre turn of events cause the Duke to do the unthinkable and make what the Polite World will call a mésalliance.

2019 Readers' Favorite Gold Medallist (Cadenza) and proud holder of five B.R.A.G. Medallions.

“I love this series. Ms. Riley is a fine author, and I can see more sleepless nights ahead as this is a six-book series!” (Vine Voice)

“Everything a historical romance should be.”

“Pride and Prejudice meets Jane Eyre in the fabulous historical romance. I loved this book! It was easy to get lost in. The writing style and phraseology were delightfully reminiscent of an Austen or Bronte novel. I recommend this book to fans of historical novels containing sharp wit, sinister plots, and hard-won love.” (Readers’ Favorite)
