The Duke's Daughters
Ravenwood's Lady and Lady Brittany’s ChoiceThe Duke of Malmesbury’s daughters discover that passion can derail even the best-laid matrimonial plans
Lady Cecily is known as the “Ice Princess” because of her cool blond beauty and her refusal to wed any of her several eligible suitors. She has no choice but to obey her father, the Duke, who wants Cecily to marry the one man who can assure the family’s social and financial positions: the arrogant and infuriating Viscount Ravenwood, who has been her enemy since childhood. A marriage of convenience is all she expects from their pairing—she has no idea that Ravenwood conceals a deep secret, or just how determined he will be to claim her heart. Cecily’s sister, Lady Brittany, is relieved that she doesn’t have to take part in the husband hunt in London’s marriage mart—though as a duke’s daughter, she is considered a prime catch. Comfortably engaged to amiable Lord Anthony Faringdon, she knows that though they may not be a love match, she and Tony will get along just fine—that is, until she meets his best friend, the darkly handsome Marquess of Cheriton, whose eyes pierce her very soul. Brittany’s comfortable life and perfect plans will be overturned by her increasingly passionate feelings for the irresistibly charming Marquess.
