Destiny with a Duke: A Regency Romance

by Lily Stanton

A nanny with a dark secret. A duke with a painful past. Can a tragic accident help them to open their hearts to love?

Eloise Rathburn escaped the cruelty of her childhood by caring for other people’s children. After her young charge’s parents die in an accident, the caretaker refuses to give him over to any guardian who’s not up to the task. The cold-blooded veteran who slams the door in their faces seems like a poor excuse for a father figure until she sneaks a peek under the icy armor shielding his heart.

After living through the horrors of war, Edwin, the Duke of Hartswood, turned his back on society and retreated to his secluded estate with only his horses for company. When a feisty nanny arrives with a young boy in tow, his first instinct is to turn them away. But he soon finds himself admiring the boy’s natural ability with the thoroughbredsâ?¦ and falling hard for Eloise’s stubborn streak and stunning beauty.

As sparks fly between them, the duke may finally be ready to share his homeâ?¦ and his heart. But when a dark presence returns from Eloise’s past, will a long-held secret tear their love apart?

Destiny with a Duke is a high-spirited Regency romance novel. If you like undeniable chemistry, galloping suspense, and vibrant historical detail, then you’ll love Lily Stanton’s second-chance love story.

“An elegiac, hopeful historical novel… hypnotic.” -Kirkus Reviews
“An extraordinary new historical novel.” -Akron Beacon Journal

On a humid day in June 1806, on the edge of Ohio’s Great Black Swamp, seventeen-year-old Susanna Quiner watches from behind a maple tree as a band of Potawatomi Indians kidnaps her four older sisters from their cabin. With both her parents dead from Swamp Fever and all the other settlers out in their fields, Susanna makes the rash decision to pursue them herself. What follows is a young woman’s quest to find her sisters, and the parallel story of her sisters’ new lives.

Over the course of one summer, the lives of all five women are transformed as they contend with starvation, slavery, betrayal, and love. Fast-paced, richly detailed, this is a riveting novel that demonstrates the true wildness of the wilderness, and the rugged perseverance of those who find themselves there.
