Four dukes. Two balls. One prizefight.
Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens will never be the same.
After England’s victory in the Battle of Waterloo, the Prince Regent arranges a series of lavish celebrations at London’s notorious Vauxhall Gardens. The royal festivities bring together the rich and the desperate, the criminal and the lordly…and allow four very different dukes to find the love of a lifetime.
A proper viscount is kidnapped by a duke of the criminal underworld, only to encounter a mysterious woman from his past. A retired prizefighter, once known as the Duke of the Ring, stakes his reputation on a scrappy young boxer for the sake of a long-lost love. A traveler who inherited a dukedom needs a tightrope dancer’s help with a fake engagement that just might turn real. And the buccaneer son of a royal duke goes hunting for a respectable, highborn wife to salvage his scandalous reputation.
Let the pleasures begin...
Fighting for His Lady by Christi Caldwell
According to Patience’s late father, in any exchange— in a fight or in a business meeting— one must claim the upper-hand. Always be in complete control of ones wits.
By Godrick Gunnery’s rounded eyes, right before he’d taken a blow to the chin, Patience had claimed that pivotal stance.
And yet, god help her, even with him sprawled on his buttocks, she was reduced to the same awe-struck girl she’d always been around him.
Her mouth went dry.
He was magnificent. With the passage of time, even more so. Ten years earlier, he’d been lean and wiry. Now, he bore a warrior’s physique… and Patience hated herself for noticing as much. Hated that Godrick Gunnery had not become soft or bald or lazy, but powerful in every way–from his form to his fighting empire.
