Never Deny A DukeBook - 2019
. . . the sole remaining bachelor of the three self-proclaimed Decadent Dukes. Yet Davina MacCallum's reasons for searching out the handsome Duke of Brentworth have nothing to do with marriage. Scottish lands were unfairly confiscated from her family by the Crown and given to his. A reasonable man with vast holdings can surely part with one trivial estate, especially when Davina intends to put it to good use. Brentworth, however, is as difficult to persuade as he is to resist.
The Duke of Brentworth's discretion and steely control make him an enigma even to his best friends. Women especially find him inscrutable and unapproachable--but also compellingly magnetic. So when Davina MacCallum shows no signs of being even mildly impressed by him, he is intrigued. Until he learns that her mission in London involves claims against his estate. Soon the two of them are engaged in a contest that allows no compromise. When duty and desire collide, the best laid plans are about to take a scandalous turn--into the very heart of passion . . .

From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Davina MacCallum is a woman of Scottish descent trying to prove to the King that she is the rightful heir to a property that was given away after the battle of Culloden. The King is sympathetic, but doesn’t want to take the property from the current owner, the Duke of Brentworth, without his agreement. Davina is determined to find the proof that the Scottish line did not die out at Culloden as was believed. Brentworth is just as determined to prove that it did, so they join forces to find the evidence. The fallout is a heartfelt, loving, sensual story.
