Desperate Duchesses

Set in the Georgian period—think Marie Antoinette—a naughtier time than the Regency!

About the Desperate Duchesses

The inspiration for this series came from the Georgian era, which was a naughtier time than the Regency, with a different tone to relations between men and women. Think less Almack’s, more Pirate Kings (and Queens). The lives of a group of duchesses intertwine through the novels, though they can certainly be read out of order. Another thread is the Duke of Villiers, who plays something of Cupid role in every book except his own (A Duke of her Own).
