Say Yes to the Duke with Kieran Kramer!!!


Get Lost in This Story…

 
 

 


CAN A SCANDALOUS BEGINNING…

Janice Sherwood wants to marry for love, but she’s failed to make a match after two Seasons. Her parents, the Marquess and Marchioness of Brady, arrange to send her to the Duke of Halsey’s country estate as a short-term guest of his grandmother, the dowager, in hopes that she might win the duke’s affections. What they never could have imagined is that Janice would fall for the ruggedly handsome servant Luke, who lives in the stables and carries an air of mystery and temptation.

 

LEAD TO A FAIRY-TALE ENDING?

When Luke Callahan learns that he is the legitimate heir to a dukedom, he will stop at nothing to claim what is his. But first, he must begin a game of disguise to secure his rightful inheritance. Janice isn’t part of his plan. But by engaging her in this dance of deception, might he lose her forever?

 

Raves and Reviews for Say Yes To The Duke

“Kramer’s gift is her innate ability to tell a story with unerring honesty, deep emotion and humor. Readers will laugh, cry and deeply sigh from beginning to end of this beautifully told, enchanting love story.” —4 1/2 stars RT Book Reviews Top Pick!

“The third book in Kramer’s “House of Brady” series offers everything this author’s fans have come to expect including a sinfully sexy romance between two perfectly matched protagonists, a richly amusing cast of unconventional secondary characters, and a lively plot that doesn’t take itself too seriously.” —Booklist

Her face took on a closed expression. “I have very little control over my own fate. And as for why I need more power, I won’t discuss it, other than to say that I heard something today which changed everything for me. It made me realize that I have to take my future into my own hands. Which is why I’ll throw my hat into the ring.”

 

“Like the other women who appeared on the driveway.” The irony wasn’t lost upon Luke.

 

Or her, either. She looked none too happy. “I suppose so.”

 

And it came to him then how wrong he was to make that sort of dig. “You’re not like the others,” he told her.

 

It took everything in him to say those words. It was an apology. But deep down, it was also an admission. He found her different from every woman he’d ever known. She was special somehow. To him. He didn’t know why.

 

“What if I am like the others?” She looked at him with accusing eyes. “Who are you to judge? If a woman is scheming, it’s because she’s trying to survive.”

 

He knew that. He knew that. He’d felt sorry for those women who’d come down the driveway before her. His own mother had become a desperate woman. But he wasn’t going to tell Lady Janice she was right. He’d said his piece. She would take it or leave it.

  15. Hello again, Kieran. BTW, how do you pronounce your name? Just curious, but I always forget to ask. :-) I really liked this excerpt. Luke has deep feelings, doesn't understand them, and he's also a man of few words. Apparently, Janice has deep feelings too, and does understand them, but can't admit to them. That makes a mystery that seems to have no solution. I guess I'm going to have to read the book to get the solution, aren't I. :-) jdh2690@gmail.com
