The Wicked Duke
by Madeline Hunter

Third in the roguishly intriguing series by the New
York Times
bestselling author of Tall, Dark, and
Wicked
and His Wicked Reputation

She appeals to his wicked inclinations, but he never expects
she might snare his heart….

Suspected of his
brother’s murder, Lancelot Hemingford, Duke of
Aylesbury, was forced to give up his hell-raising habits in
London for the anonymity of quiet country living. So, when
an opportunity arises to clear his name in exchange for
proposing to the niece of a neighbor, he sees no choice but
to accept. Plus, seducing the reluctant maiden will be a
most intriguing challenge…

As Marianne Radley is
dependent on her uncle, she must accept the Duke’s
marriage proposal at her family’s request, despite her
belief he is irredeemably wicked. But along with marrying
him, she intends to sniff out the duke’s unsavory
secrets and expose them to the world: a plan that would be
flawless were it not for one minor detail—even she,
with all her determination, is not immune to the charms of a
rakish duke…
