Duchess By Design

Book Cover: Duchess By Design
Part of the The Gilded Age Girls Club series:

In the first novel of Maya Rodale’s enthralling new series, an English duke vows to make an American seamstress his duchess...

In Gilded Age Manhattan, anything can happen…

Seeking a wealthy American bride who can save his family’s estate, Brandon Fiennes, the duke of Kingston, is a rogue determined to do the right thing. But his search for an heiress goes deliciously awry when an enchanting seamstress tumbles into his arms instead.

...And true love is always in fashion

Miss Adeline Black aspires to be a fashionable dressmaker—not a duchess—and not even an impossibly seductive duke will distract her. But Kingston makes an offer she can’t refuse: join him at society events to display her gowns and advise him on which heiresses are duchess material.

It’s the perfect plan--as long as they resist temptation, avoid a scandal and above all do not lose their hearts.

Without thinking he grabbed her around the waist and tugged her close against him, out of the way of those dangerous riders.

She clasped the lapels of his jacket. Her lips were just inches from his.

He didn’t move an inch. Not at all. She clung to him and he didn’t exactly let go.

He stood tall above her, acutely aware that her breasts occasionally brushed against his chest, achingly aware just an inch would close the distance between his arousal and her skirts. He held her, his hand hot and possessive on her waist.

Kingston flirted with the possibility of kissing her.


He came so close he could taste it.

A slow, sweet kiss was just there between them, ripe for the plucking. Something stopped him, though. It was a deep, instinctive sense that once his lips touched hers it would be impossible to stop. When he kissed this woman, he was going to kiss her so thoroughly and completely that they would require all night and the morning, too.
