Description
The Duke's Desire
Simon Hawkins, duke of Trent, is no stranger to scandal. Rumors and innuendo have darkened the House of Trent for decades, and it has fallen to Simon to restore his tattered family name. He lives by a strict code of honor, but when he is called home to investigate his mother's disappearance, the distinguished duke will tangle with temptation. For there waits the only woman he has ever loved-and the last woman he should desire . . .
Sarah Osborne has spent her life dreaming of Simon's touch. But dukes do not long for lady's maids-or so Sarah believes, until a stolen kiss sparks a passion that could be her ultimate undoing. As the couple begins a forbidden romance, a cunning enemy plots to destroy the duke and everything he loves. Now, caught in a blackmailer's web, Simon faces an agonizing choice: sacrifice his family's future or break Sarah's heart.

        You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.

        May 13, 2013
        Whether Haymore’s storytelling will appeal depends upon the importance one attaches to the “historical” part of “historical romance.” Nothing in her ostensibly Regency-set series launch suggests the 19th century beyond the ubiquity of horse-drawn transportation. Certainly the premise—the daughter of a gardener, educated alongside the sons of a duke, becoming the love of the heir—gives no more than nodding acknowledgment to the realities of the era’s social order. Beyond that, the inappropriate amour between Sarah Osborne, head housemaid turned lady’s companion, and Simon Hawkins, Duke of Trent, is a pleasant, predictable bit of romantic fluff. Haymore adds some intrigue with the disappearance of Simon’s mother and the eventual emergence of a blackmailing threat, but these are minor diversions from the main agenda of hot glances, murmurs about what other people might think, and setups for future installments.

        In Haymore's (Secrets of an Accidental Duchess, 2012) latest, Sarah, the gardener's daughter, is treated like family on the Duke of Trent's estate. So when the duchess goes missing, Sarah is elevated from housemaid to daughter Esme's companion while the four sons search for their mother. After hiring a detective, heir Simon, Esme, and Sarah head to London for the season, where Simon will seek a wife, even though he loves Sarah in spite of her social status. At the head of the pack of debutantes is Simon's neighbor Georgina, and her family is pushing for the match. But Simon is torn between marrying someone of his own class or someone who holds his heart. Meanwhile, all avenues to discovering who kidnapped the Duchess of Trent and whether she is alive or dead seem blocked. As the hunt unfolds, Haymore touches on the themes of dynastic marriage, public scandal, and the obligations of an heir to his widowed mother and siblings.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
