A DUKE'S DESPAIR!
Tansy Tamerlane was headed for yet another position as governess when her distant cousin Ashley, Duke of Avanoll, invited her to London to act as a sensible chaperone to his flighty sister, Lady Emily.
But the captivating Tansy was soon society's darling, and much to the Duke's chagrin, his household was overrun with ardent suitors. The arrogant young Duke, a confirmed bachelor, found his irrepressibly spirited cousin quite exasperating, infuriating ...but decidedly fascinating. Much in the habit of avoiding romantic entanglements, he took leave of London in a huff.
The tenacious Miss Tamerlane, however, had somehow insinuated herself into his heart, for the usually cool and proper Duke hurried home in quite a state when led to believe that Tansy had fixed her attentions on another!
