Welcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love… Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town’s infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart—the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and the only man who’s ever impressed her in the least… With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can’t help but be stirred by Cat. It’s terribly unfortunate he’s not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir’s birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken—in true fairy-tale fashion—by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin…

Returning once more to England during the colorful Regency Era, Boyle transports readers to the small town of Kempton, where a local curse prevents the female residents from wedding—a fact that cannot deter a plucky young heiress who needs to marry to inherit her fortune, as she strikes out for London to wed a rakish and unsuspecting duke. Funny, touching, and wonderfully sensuous, Along Came a Duke is a prime example of the exceptional romantic magic that puts Elizabeth Boyle in the same master class as Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd.

She couldn’t believe he would even think something like that and had run away, too hurt by his accusations. Now his grandmother’s dying wish is to see Sasha once more and Dante will do everything within his power to grant her wish, even if he still considers her a black widow who had betrayed him more deeply than anyone else. He could ignore her though, as long as it took to bring her to his grandmother. What he hadn’t counted on was Sasha’s soulful eyes coming back to haunt him, or her previously slender body now gaunt with her weight loss. If she’d cheated on him, why did she look like she was the one that had been betrayed? And then, in the moonlit darkness, the past didn’t matter any longer. It was just her soft scent, her tender touch and her longing looks that drew him in. From the first moment they’d met they hadn’t been able to deny their attraction to each other and the hurt each thought the other had caused couldn’t stop that attraction from taking over and overwhelming both of them once more.
