Description from

Book 1 of The Duke’s Sons series

From bestselling author Jane Ashford comes another brand new series of sparkling Regency Romance

Life is predictable for a Duke’s first son As eldest son of the Duke of Langford, Nathaniel Gresham sees his arranged marriage to Lady Violet Devere as just another obligation to fulfill-highly suitable, if unexciting. But as Violet sets out to transform herself from dowdy wallflower to dazzling young duchess-to-be, proper Nathaniel sets out to prove he’s a match for his new bride’s vivacity and daring.

Or so he once thought… Oppressed by her family all her life, Lady Violet can’t wait to enjoy the freedom of being a married woman. But then Violet learns her family’s sordid secret, and she’s faced with an impossible choice-does she tell Nathaniel and risk losing him, or does she hide it and live a lie?


Poor Violet! She has had a very difficult childhood and she didn’t realize how confining and abusive it was until she was out from under the influence of her Grandmother. She blossomed in her new found freedom and was happy for the first time in her life. Nathaniel was the ideal husband, caring, kind and passionately sexy. But then Her Abusive Grandmother showed up to turn her world upside down.  Violet’s best friend kept manipulating her into unsavory situations.

This is a terrific read! We watch as a marriage of convenience becomes one of deep love. Nathaniel is a true hero and watching Violet become a mature woman is a delight. I can highly recommend this book for its wonderful prose, and unique plot.
