Marrying the Duke

The Fairest of Them All

Marrying the Duke

About the Book

In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing…but which Whitridge twin is the right groom?

The penniless orphan of a disreputable earl, Lady Charlene Blanchard thrives on the adventure of picking the pockets of unsavory gentlemen to survive. But due to her extraordinary beauty and prized bloodlines, she is hand-chosen as a potential bride for the Duke of Baynton, who is on the hunt for a suitable wife to provide heirs. All Char has to do is act the part she was born to play and charm a duke she’s never laid eyes on into proposing. Except the duke turns out to be the tall, dark and sexy stranger who just caught her red-handed as a thief! 

Or is he? Jack Whitridge is the duke’s twin who had “gone missing” over ten years ago. Now back in England, he knows that the supposed Lady who has his brother’s love is hardly duchess material—except he needs her to save his adopted country from war. He is willing to bargain with her heart, until he finds himself falling for Char . . . 

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Maxwell’s signature skill at depicting complicated family relationships is one of the novel’s strongest features. Even secondary characters display unusual depth under Maxwell’s deft hand. Both lively and thought-provoking, this book is well worth reading.” —Publishers Weekly

“Well written, with sharp historical accuracy and a slightly feminist bent...Readers are transported back to the time of grand balls and Gretna Green, and the romance is tinged with the faintest whiff of wartime gunpowder. Smart dialogue, a strong plot, and simmering politics make for a delicious read.” —Publishers Weekly

“Twisting and turning, constantly surprising readers, Maxwell tantalizes with an unconventional plot simmering with sexual tension and suspense...Smart, fun, sexy — this is what Maxwell’s readers want!” —RT Book Reviews

“Jealousy, old resentments, and misunderstandings drive the plot of this charming, historically grounded Regency that brings an independent, spirited couple together and cleverly paves the way for the last of the trilogy.” —Library Journal
