Launching a Prince

The daughter of a duke, bound by duty.

A prince in disguise

A matchmaking cat.

Yes, if you recognized the last as Fortune, you’re right! Fortune had a hand, er, paw, in matching up all the heroines in my Fortune’s Brides series, starting with Never Doubt a Duke. Now she’s back, with the next generation of young ladies, and she has help. http://www.reginascott.com/neverdoubtaduke.html

Lady Abelona, youngest daughter of the Duke of Wey (Belle to friends and family), is ready to make her debut in Society, but, oddly enough, her two older sisters, Larissa and Callie, and best friend, Petunia Bateman, have yet to find their happily-ever-afters, despite three Seasons in London. So Belle makes them vow to see all four of them wed by harvest. Fortune will have her paws full!

Though Larissa promises to help (after all, no one says no to Belle), she’s all but given up on finding her own groom. What gentleman could possibly be good enough to meet her late mother’s and grandmother’s expectations. She has a hard enough time meeting those expectations for poise, propriety, and perfection. But a chance encounter brings the most marvelous gentleman to her attention. A shame he is merely a captain of the Imperial Guard of Batavaria and in no way the suitable husband for the daughter of a duke.

Prince Otto Leopold Augustus of Batavaria has one goal: to win back his country from those who ousted his family. But someone seems intent on stopping him, for danger stalks the corridors of their palace in England. So why not trade places with his identical twin brother, the leader of the Imperial Guard? Leo might just uncover their enemies before someone is hurt. And having an ally in the thoroughly proper and pretty duke’s daughter can only help.

The more Larissa and Leo are thrown together, the more secrets come to light and the more their attraction grows. Would the daughter of a duke dare to throw off propriety, if it means winning the heart of the most princely of men?

I loved it! It was the perfect antidote to the crazy, scary news of the world we live in. It was fun catching up with old friends and I am DYING for Callie's story! Thank you for the e-ARC. Review posted on GoodReads, my blog and on Amazon. I have a Rosalind Thorne mystery and a Sarah M. Eden Regency romance to look forward to and then I'll be ready for Callie!
