Seduction of a Duke
by J R Salisbury
GENRE: Historical Romance (Victorian)
You never know when Cupid's arrow is going to
Lady Cora Keats, the only daughter of the Duke of
Dover. is not only beautiful, she’s confident, self-assured, and sometimes a wee
bit outspoken. She knows one day she’ll have to marry and settle down – her
father constantly reminds her. Cora has other plans - she doesn’t want to
marry…at least not now. She’s grown into an independent woman with an
occupation few women dare pursue. She cannot…no. she will not. give up a
successful business for a man. Not even if he’s an obscenely handsome duke who
shares her interests.
Sebastian Steele, Duke of Hightower. is sought
after by all the eligible young women. Tall, muscular and stunningly
good-looking, the former rake has quietly begun his search for a wife. Drawn by
Lady Cora’s uniqueness and confidence he realizes through all their bickering
there is something more lying beneath the surface.
Can these two opposites put aside their differences
and work together for the greater good or will pride and stubbornness rule?
"Move your arse! Move your bloody arse!"
Sebastian Steele, Duke of Hightower watched in fascination
at the young woman standing at the rail yelling and making a fool of herself.
Fascinated because he'd never seen a woman get so animated about a horserace.
It was undignified and certainly unbecoming of a lady. Where was her husband?
Though women did attend horse races with their husbands,
they never behaved like this. She appeared to be a peer, well dressed and
mannered, except for this outburst. Could it be her husband’s horse she was
carrying on about?
She continued watching the race, cheering them on. In the
sun red hues sparkled off her mahogany hair. She wore dark green dress with
charcoal piping along with a peplum jacket and skirt. The collar hugged her
chin and was trimmed with black lace. The jacket closed with small black
buttons on the front.
He turned his attention from the dark-haired woman to the
race, which was winding down. The horses were headed into the homestretch, and
his own entry, Apollo's Gold was proving once again to be a disappointment,
holding at a good distance behind the winner. The stallion had shown great
promise up until the last two races. Something was missing. He needed to send
Apollo to someone who could salvage this horse's future before he ruined it.
"Better luck next time," Crispin Allgood, Earl of
Yorkshire said, clasping him on the shoulder

person from the past – so it would have to be Mozart
