Dream of a Duke from Love’s Harvest: A Regency Romance Harvest Collection
Lady Evelyn Evermont is an avid horsewoman. At least she was before the death of her father, the Marquess of Evermont.
Now Lady Evelyn is charged with trying to dissuade her brother Frederic from squandering the family fortune and leading them both to ruin. So when her brother’s drinking and gambling threatens her horses, Evelyn must act and act quickly. Frederic’s solution is to marry her off to a rich old Marquess.
In desperation, Evelyn wagers the handsome Duke of Pemberton, that her mare can beat his stallion in a turf match race. The Duke states that a mare can never beat a stallion, but he takes Lady Evelyn’s bet, commenting that it is only handful of horses…but those horses are Evelyn’s life, and all she has left of her father.
Embark on a wild race for horses and hearts. A wicked wager made in haste, a stolen kiss, an unsuitable suitor and a tragic tumble threaten everything Evelyn once held dear. The stables of Evermont will never be the same.
Lady Evelyn and the Duke will struggle with passion and pride…and learn that maybe one is not worth the other.
