Duke of Madness

#1 Sisterhood of Secrets

Jennifer Monroe

In this Beauty and the Beast, opposites-attract Regency romance by Jennifer Monroe, love proves it can bloom in even the most unlikely and darkest of places…

A duke who cannot trust his own mind.
A young woman mistaken for a thief.
For a dashing duke and a sensible spinster, true love arrives when they least expect it.

A Tortured Soul

Matthew, the 5th Duke of Elmhurst, lives a doomed life. Believing himself destined to become as mad as his father, he has resigned himself to a lonely existence. His only comfort in life? His expanding empire—the success of which he attributes to a mysterious family heirloom, a lucky pocket watch that has been passed down for generations.
But after a visit to Mrs. Rutley’s School for Young Women, Matthew is shocked to find his lucky timepiece has vanished! Filled with rage, he decides the thief must be the young lady who conveniently bumped into him during his visit, and assumes she has used her beauty as a distraction in order to pick his pocket.

An Offense to Fair Maidenhood

Miss Julia Wallace is a baron’s daughter and certainly no petty thief! However, when a desperate Mrs. Rutley offers her former student’s company as a way to placate the Duke of Elmhurst for the loss of his family heirloom, Julia agrees to the arrangement…and places herself in the awkward position of trying to become the duke’s new lucky charm. 

Unleashing Dark Secrets…and Secret Desires

Handsome and seemingly eligible, Julia has no idea why the duke would be such a committed bachelor. But as the duke and Julia become closer and friendship blossoms, she discovers his bleak secret.
Yet just as the stakes are raised, the passion between Julia and Matthew threatens to become stronger than even the most devastating of threats. 

Can anything bank the blaze of true love? 

And how much will Matthew be willing to risk for the woman who already loves him so completely… body, mind, and soul?
