Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town's infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart--the most handsome man she's ever seen, and the only man who's ever impressed her in the least...
With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can't help but be stirred by Cat. It's terribly unfortunate he's not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir's birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken--in true fairy-tale fashion--by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin...

MacKenzie (Naked Nobility) dresses up this fun series launch—half fairy tale, half sitcom—in historical garb without any pretense of detailed authenticity. In 1617, merchant’s daughter Isabella dallies out of wedlock with Marcus, the third Duke of Hart. He does not marry her, and she curses his heirs to premature death unless they marry for love. Successive dukes, apparently strangers to Cupid, die young. Another Marcus, the Regency-era Duke of Hart, fears his inevitable demise until he meets another Isabelle, a vicar’s daughter. Her sole ambition is to get into the Spinster House, an establishment the duchy maintains (complete with bylaws), also in accordance with the improbably detailed curse. With so much celibacy around, it’s inevitable that lust will set in, but will this Marcus and Isabelle get the love part right? Mischievous children and a mysterious feline provide warm, chaotic touches amid the mannered structure. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Sept.)
