New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan begins the all new Duke Hunt series with the illegitimate son of a duke who meets his match in the daring daughter of a vicar.
The Bastard Rogue...
Peregrine Butler’s privileged blue-blooded world is rocked to the core when it is revealed he was born before his parents’ marriage and therefore is not the legal heir to the dukedom. Now as poor as the proverbial church mouse, Perry must use his charm and good looks to win an heiress and save himself from wretched penury—all the while ignoring his fascination with the one interfering and alluring chit who is intent on sabotaging his efforts.
The Lady Vicar...
Everyone knows Imogen Bates, the virtuous daughter of the senile vicar. It is she who writes the sermons, and she everyone sees about all matters spiritual and domestic. A pillar of the community, she will protect her beloved Shropshire from all rogues, starting with the worst offender: the erstwhile Duke of Penning, the bane of her existence since childhood. She vows to protect the local heiresses from being taken in by the silver-tongued fortune hunter because it’s the right thing to do ... certainly not because she finds herself wanting to keep his heated glances and tempting kisses all to herself.
