A funny thing happened on the way to the gallows…
One minute, London banker Quinn Wentworth is facing execution. The next, he’s declared the long-lost heir to a dukedom. Quinn has fought his way up from the vilest slums, and now he’s ready to use every dirty trick he knows to find the enemy who schemed against him.
There was just one tiny problem…
Jane Winston, the widowed, pregnant daughter of a meddlesome prison preacher, crosses paths with Quinn in jail. Believing his days are numbered, Quinn offers Jane marriage as a way to guarantee her independence and provide for her child. Neither thinks they’ll actually have a future together.
They were wrong.
He’s a wealthy gutter rat out for vengeance. She’s a minister’s daughter who must turn a marriage of desperation into a proper ducal union. Are they doomed from the start or destined for a happily-ever-after?
Vengence. Justice. Redemption.
When does it all end?
Mistakes were made. Everyone freely admits to those, but who has Quinn wronged enough to warrant a false judgement?
Miracles happen. How on earth has Quinn been lucky so many times. He may have started out in rough condition and hard work and perserverence certainly were key, but he definitely has the angels on his side to have this inheriitencen and this wife.
Patience may be a virtue but there can only be so much allotted….
I really enjoyed My One and Only Duke. What could certainly have been a very dark book was lightened by gin drinking ladies, flagrant disregard for proprities, and a family that’s completely clueless.
I LOVED Jane. Yes, the characters as a whole are great, but she absolutely made the book for me. Her patience, perseverance, and good nature is a welcome and fun read in what would otherwise be an intense book.
