will pride and stubbornness rule? Seduction of a Duke (Love and Devotion #3) by J.R. Salisbury

 
"This is a wonderful story with two powerful characters. They are both focused and stubborn. They find once they talk that they have lots of things in common. They find love and a future." Suzette, Goodreads


Description:

Release Date: January 11th, 2022

You never know when cupids arrow is going to strike…

Lady Cora Keats, the only daughter of the Duke of Dover is not only beautiful, she’s confident, self-assured and sometimes a wee bit outspoken. She knows one day she’ll have to marry and settle down – her father constantly reminds her. Cora has other plans - she doesn’t want to marry…at least not now. She’s grown into an independent woman with an occupation few women dare pursue. She cannot…no she will not give up a successful business for a man. Not even if he’s an obscenely handsome duke who shares her interests.

Sebastian Steele, Duke of Hightower was sought after by all the eligible young women. Tall, muscular and stunningly good-looking, the former rake has quietly begun his search for a wife. Drawn by Lady Cora’s uniqueness and confidence he realizes through all their bickering there is something more lying beneath the surface.

Can these two opposites put aside their differences and work together for the greater good or will pride and stubbornness rule?

The New Historical Romance

It seems there are SO many rules in writing regency, and for some odd reason, this particular era is scrutinized. 

Forms of address had better be correct because readers, in particular, Regency readers today pick up on that and have no problem dressing down the author. I myself wrote one particular book as a regency era and got so much flack about a couple of ways aristocracy was addressed, I pulled the book and turned it into a Victorian era where it's done quite well. 

My own feeling is that a lot of readers of this era are Jane Austin fans (and who isn't) who expect romance novels of that era to be like hers. We all learn to adjust to the market and produce the very best books we can.
