What's a duke to do, when the girl who's perfectly wrong becomes the woman he can't live without?

Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season--or any season--but his diabolical mother abducts him to "Spinster Cove" and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl.

Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn't dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week's employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother's "duchess training"... and fail miserably.

But in London, Pauline isn't a miserable failure. She's a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure--a woman who ignites Griff's desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won't be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess--can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart?

This is an excellent conclusion to a really fun Regency quartet. The premise is, even by Regency romance standards, wildly implausible, but the sly nods to Cinderella and My Fair Lady are enjoyable, the book is laugh-out-loud funny at times, and the hero and heroine are exceptionally well-matched. Highly recommended to fans of light, witty historical romance.

Purists may not like the duke-and-commoner love story -- but who cares how plausible it is when you have characters as fantastic as Griff and Pauline and love scenes this steamy?

Out of the ordinary all right, but the tone is wrong.
