Summary

Oxford, 1879. A beautiful bluestocking is about to teach a duke a lesson....

Brilliant but destitute Annabelle Archer is one of the first female students at Oxford University. In return for her scholarship, she must recruit influential men to champion the rising women's suffrage movement. Her first target is Sebastian Devereux: cold, calculating and the most powerful duke in England.

When Annabelle and her friends infiltrate his luxurious estate, she's appalled to find herself attracted to the infuriatingly intelligent aristocrat - but perhaps she's not the only one struggling with desire....

Soon Annabelle is locked in a battle with rising passion and a will matching her own. She'll need to learn fast just what it takes to bring down a duke.

Critic reviews

"I have read the future of historical romance, and it's Evie Dunmore." (Eva Leigh, author of Dare to Love a Duke)

"Evie Dunmore's debut is a marvel...a witty, richly detailed, historically significant, and achingly romantic celebration of the power of love and the passionate fight for women's rights." (Chanel Cleeton, best-selling author of Next Year in Havana)

"Dazzles and reminds us all why we fell in love with historical romance." (Julia London, New York Times best-selling author of Seduced by a Scot)

Farfetched

It's fiction but, even so, an English queen in 1898 would never have meddled directly in politics. I could have gone along with this nonsense had not reality intruded when Disraeli was named.
