When You Wish Upon a Duke
About the Book
Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn't care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.
But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March's broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?
Praise & Reviews from Publications
“Bradford enlivens the 18th century arranged marriage with lust at first sight for the first Wylder Sisters romance….This well-plotted novel is steeped in realism, with meticulous attention to historical detail that never overwhelms the romantic tension.” ~Publishers Weekly
“From the great characters, the excellent writing, secondary characters, and sparkling wit, this book has it all. When You Wish Upon a Duke is wonderfully simplistic in its story, and that is where it shines and becomes, ironically, so complex. It's a perfect romance—and a true romance.” ~ Heroes & Heartbreakers
