#TBT: Mad About the Duke

This book, Mad About the Duke, is the story inspired my upcoming Bachelor Chronicles spin-off, Mad about the Major. Here is where the Duke of Parkerton finally meets his match.

But the wait for Parkerton’s story took some time. He first appeared at the end of This Rake of Mine, chastising his younger brother, Mad Jack Tremont, to get out of jail and go marry Miranda. I sort of fell in love Mad About the Dukewith him the moment he stepped on the page. He is so stuffy and ducal and proper. He just needed his life turned upside down.

Does anyone else sense a theme here? I just love taking a perfectly happy bachelor hero and turn his life inside out with the introduction of one of my madcap heroines. Elinor

, Lady Standon isn’t exactly madcap (she’s actually a lot like Parkerton) but she is desperate to marry and she wants nothing less than a duke.

Mistaking Parkerton for a solicitor, she hires him on the spot to find her a likely candidate. And thus, Parkerton finds himself in the role of unwitting matchmaker. I loved putting Parkerton through the paces of falling in love and then actually admitting it.

Dukes just hate that!

Comment below and tell me what you are currently “mad” about (and by mad, I mean in a good way!) and one lucky commenter will win an autographed book from the Bachelor Chronicles series. Check back next Monday to see if you’ve won.

If you go on a complete reading binge this weekend, you might be able to finish the Bachelor Chronicles series by next Tuesday, when Arabella Tremont, escapes her ducal father and sets out to discover London on her own. You’ll learn why, like father like daughter, Arabella finds herself,Β  Mad About the Major.

But even if you can’t get them all finished, pre-order your copy of Mad About the Major before the release date of June 2nd to get the special price of $1.99. Otherwise you’ll just be mad at yourself for missing out. And not the good kind of mad. LOL.

    I’m mad about my husband of 33+ years. He is my hero, best friend and my lover. I’m also mad about my grandkids! They’re the reward for not killing their parents during the teen years!
