The Duke in Question

Amalie Howard

Sourcebooks, 2022

Agent: Thao Le

This lady is not at all a paragon of society…

Lady Bronwyn Chase leaves London on her brother's passenger liner bound for America with a packet of secret letters that could get her into trouble. Serious trouble?the kind a duke's sister shouldn't be in; the kind that puts spymaster Valentine Medford, the Duke of Thornbury, on her trail. But as the duke gets closer to Bronwyn and the secrets she's keeping, he'll have to decide between the mysterious woman who calls to him, or his allegiance to the Crown.


"With this spirited Victorian romance, a loose sequel to 2021’s Rules for Heiresses, Howard constructs a vibrant, witty adventure whose undercover leads enjoy sizzling chemistry under the covers ... Howard touches upon the social inequalities and marginalization of the time, adding nuance and depth to this witty, suspensful romance. By turns playful and tense, it's a thoroughly entertaining romp." - Publisher's Weekly
