The Reluctant Duchess
While Lady Rowena Kinnaird is first in line to inherit her father's earldom, she has never led the privileged life of her peers. Tucked away in her overbearing father's Highland home with a scheming step-mother, Rowena has never felt worthy of or equal to her title. When her physical safety and inheritance are both threatened, how far will she go to escape the only life she has ever known? Will she ever learn to trust her savior-- the dashing Brice Myerston, Duke of Nottingham-- who is not only a notorious flirt, but also has a few dangerous secrets of his own?
In The Reluctant Duchess, Roseanna M. White tells a compelling story of redemption and love. Infinitely more relatable than Brooke Eden of White's previous novel in the series-- The Lost Heiress-- Rowena's story captivates and inspires. The central love story is suspenseful but not frustrating, exciting but believable, and beautifully concluded.
On a deeper level, White expertly delves into the nature of God's work in our individual lives, and prods readers to explore their faith in things unseen. Set against the fascinating Scottish Highlands and the glittering ballrooms of Edwardian England's social elite, White takes her readers on a non-stop, page-turning adventure.
