From the Author
I was so thrilled that this historical also hit the erotica chart for three months in the UK, it's wonderful to see historical romance reach out to new readers. John appeared in book 1 of The Marlow Intrigues series, a no.1 bestselling Historical Romance in the USA, and book 2, The Passionate Love of a Rake, as a child, but now he is all grown up. I'm thrilled to share my slightly wicked, arrogant and moody Duke with you. He has a fractured heart of gold beneath it all.
The inspiration for The Scandalous Love of a Duke, came at the time that Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton... Mmmm maybe you could have spotted that as the lead female's name is Katherine Spencer, I am entirely shameless when it comes to naming characters after the people who inspired me to write them. John's and Katherine's story is not Prince William's and Kate's, but it was Prince William's apparent reluctance to accept his responsibility, though he's completely capable, and how he implied a dislike of having to undergo his duty... but then there is Prince William when he's with Kate, and he becomes a different more confident, more comfortable person...
