Description

The unexpected duchess

Archibald Salisbury, son of a viscount, war hero, and proficient in the proper ways of aristocratic society, has received orders for his most challenging mission: Genevieve, Duchess of Blakesley. How she inherited a duchy isn't his problem. Turning her into a perfect duchess is. But how can he keep his mind on business when her beauty entices him toward pleasure?

It was impossible, unprecedented...and undeniably true. Genevieve is now a "duke", or, rather, a duchess. So what is she to do when the ton eyes her every move, hoping she'll make a mistake? Genevieve knows she has brains and has sometimes been told she has beauty, but, out of her depth, she calls on an expert. And what an expert, with shoulders broad enough to lean on, and a wit that matches her own. Archie is supposed to teach her to be a lady and run her estate, but what she really wants to do is unladylike—run into his arms.

        Starred review from February 15, 2017
        Genevieve, the new Duchess of Blakesley, could really use a copy of Duchessing for Dummies right about now. No one, least of all Genevieve, expected a woman to inherit the duchy, but now she finds herself transformed into the latest member of the ton. Because she doesn't have a clue as to what it takes to be a successful duchess, Genevieve turns to her godmother, Lady Sophia, for help. Lady Sophia, in turn, sends her super-efficient steward, the retired Captain Archibald Salisbury, to whip Genevieve into shape. The last thing on earth Archie wants to do is help some feckless aristocrat sort out her new life, but Lady Sophia is his employer, and if that is what she wants, that is what Archie will do. Even if it kills him. My Fair Duchess, Frampton's marvelously clever riff on Pygmalion and the latest in her Dukes Behaving Badly series, following Why Do Dukes Fall in Love (2016), is another captivating symphony of scintillating wit and sophisticated sensuality brilliantly conducted by an author writing at the top of her game.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
