A Darling for a Duke

Book I in Deborah Small’s new series, out later this year!

What price, honour?

Justin Bradshaw vowed to never marry. Only… he is married, courtesy of a contract landed him when his elder brother died forcing Bradshaw to abandon the military life he loved, to protect and restore honour to a dukedom generations in the making. There’s a chance Bradshaw can regain his marital freedom and retain his self-respect, if he can find an honorable way to void the marriage—before his new wife regains her memory…

What price, love?

Brooke Darling has no idea her new husband is trying to spare her heart by sending her away. Or that he wishes to nullify their marriage. Nor does she know she wanted no part of the arrangement in the first place. She only knows she’s the Duchess of Camberleigh and she belongs at her husband’s side—provided she can convince him to let her stay. But when her memory finally pieces together and Brooke remembers she’s a pawn in a power play and more, the events surrounding the accident that led to her memory loss, she wants no part of the charade. Only…

She’s fallen in love. With her husband.  The heart-breaking question is: can he ever love her?

 


My One True Love

Featuring Margaret from books I and II of Deborah Small’s Dear One series…

1916

Twice widowed…
Margaret Sweeney has no intention of marrying again. Her heart simply cannot withstand another loss. Besides, it’s a rare man that knowingly weds a barren woman, and she buried him. To honour his memory, she decides to dedicate herself to Sugar Hill, the tobacco plantation he left her. But when she meets overseer, Joe Banner, and his delightful daughter Maisie, all her plans to refrain from ever loving someone again, go awry…

Once bitten…
Joe learned young the danger of romantic love with a woman, and vowed to never make that mistake again. For a decade he’s been true to his word. And then the new owner of Sugar Hill sweeps into his and Maisie’s carefully ordered lives and upends everything, including his resolve to remain aloof…

Three lives forever changed…
Painful as it is to lose in love, it’s nothing compared to losing a child. And when Joe’s past and Margaret’s present conspire to threaten Maisie’s future, the couple will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means giving up every precious last piece of their damaged hearts…

I was fortunate to be raised on a hobby farm where my passion for reading, and all things furred and feathered, was indulged. When I wasn’t adopting stray cats and dogs—and the occasional flock of geese—I was riding one of my horses, or locked in my room with the latest Nancy Drew or Black Stallion adventure. …
