A Duke But No Gentleman by Alexandra Hawkins

Series: Master of Seduction, 1
Genre: Historical Romance


In the last opulent days of the eighteenth century, a friendly wager turns into a heated feud that spans decades…and a love affair like none other.

What does it take to tempt a lady… 

London, 1792. The Duke of Blackbern and the Marquess of Norgrave are boyhood friends who will still compete at anything. Racing, drinking, gambling, even seduction—until Lady Imogen Sunter crosses their path. Achingly beautiful, and innocent, she has no understanding of the jaded gentlemen who are courting her for favors—of how far they are willing to go to get what they want…

In this game of seduce and destroy?

Fighting for Imogen’s affection should have been no more than their usual spirited rivalry. But when Blackbern discovers his feelings for Imogen have deepened, all bets are off. Norgrave, driven by his own demons, won’t forsake his pride—and with one shocking act of betrayal that threatens Imogen and Blackbern’s newfound desire, Norgrave will set the course for a generation of Regency bad boys who will go down in history as the Masters of Seduction...

It's a pretty cover. I believe TBQ's favorite color is purple, so it's automatic win with the cover. It has a Duke, and we all know I love Dukes. I think that's all I got for today. What are you lusting for?


  1. Ack, let's try that again:

    Yep, that is a pretty purple -- I like it! :) Though I hate to burst your bubble, but . . . my favorite color is blue. Certain shades of purple are a close second for me. :D

    1. LOL! Did you not read I said believe, meaning I wasn't quite sure.

  2. It's definitely a sexy cover : the wild hair, the undone clothes, his hands on her thigh, great choice !
