The Duke Bargain

A determined lady, a grumpy duke, a Christmas bargain… 

When the new Duke of Metford cuts off the funding to Banton University’s Ladies’ College on Christmas Eve, Doctor Lily Reagan resolves to persuade him in person before the term resumes. Surely she can make him see how valuable women’s education is? 

Beckett Winchester isn’t a dissolute wastrel like his father, and his first act as Duke is to tell all the tarts and actresses his father wasted money on that they won’t be bleeding the Metford estate dry any longer. The arrival of beautiful Lily Reagan in the snow isn’t going to change his mind. 

But Lily proposes a bargain. A game of chance. If she wins, he’ll finance her precious Ladies’ College. And if he wins, this tempting siren will do anything he wants… 

The Duke Bargain is a grumpy sunshine Victorian age gap historical romance with a snowed in Duke and the lady astronomer he can’t resist.
