He's at her service . . .
Though she can't afford the coal to heat her drafty Mayfair mansion, Felicity Langley still clings to her dream of marrying a duke--one she's had since her very first curtsy. After all, she's been promised to the very lofty Duke of Hollindrake for the last four years. Now all she has to do is meet him. But what Felicity doesn't realize is that she has met her duke--he's the altogether too handsome man who Felicity has just mistaken . . . for her new footman
By rights, Thatcher should immediately set this presumptuous chit straight and tell her he has no intention of honoring the arranged betrothal. But he's quickly smitten by Felicity's delightful determination, her irrepressible charm . . . and her breathtaking sensuality. Yes, she'd wed him in an instant were his true identity revealed--but Thatcher's vowed to marry only for love. So begins his deception and his conquest of this uncommon woman who doesn't believe in romance, but is about to find her heart and passion set aflame by the unlikely man she's sworn to resist.

A waltz of wit
Love Letters from a Duke is the latest in Elizabeth Boyle's very popular series of Georgian romances. Felicity Langley is a sensible girl. She has assembled an all-inclusive guide to the marriageable men in England called The Bachelor Chronicles, a pursuit that has led her to realize her own best match will be with the Duke of Hollindrake. To that end, she begins a correspondence with the Duke, and their betrothal is imminent as the novel opens. What the Duke does not know is that the sisters are penniless, and only Felicity's cleverness has allowed them to assemble a respectable front, one that includes hiring a footman who is much too handsome and much too forwardand one who raises a most inappropriate passion in Felicity. What Felicity doesn't know is that she is not the only one juggling a few secrets! RITA-winner Boyle has turned a classic of mistaken identity into a rollicking comedy of romantic manners.
