The one woman he will never forget…
Malcolm Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer’s end. There is only one problem—he already has one.
The one man she will never forgive…
After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal—to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal; Sera can have her freedom, just as soon as she finds her replacement…which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want, but somehow cannot resist.
A love that neither can deny…
The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day The Day of the Duchess.
Thank you Edelweiss and Avon for the review copy!
Note: This is Book 3 of the series, but you can read them each as stand-alones. I highly recommend the previous books, though!
This book was such an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Sarah MacLean really draws out the feels, as we follow the second chance romance of the Duke of Haven and his Duchess. While Sera and Mal appear in the first book of the series, The Rogue Not Taken, we see Mal cheating on her while she’s pregnant and Sophie – one of Sera’s sister – pushing him into a pond. He retaliates by almost ruining their family. So, Malcolm definitely had a lot to redeem in this story. Suffice it to say, MacLean has really done his character justice, as readers really feel his regret, sorrow, and suffering, as well as his ability to change for the better. Sera was strong, resilient, and willful, creating a tough time for Malcolm to win her back. As he deserves! Continue reading
