In Need of a Knight–Previously Titled In Need of a Duke
I’ve received many emails asking where one might find In Need of a Duke, the prequel story for my Heart of a Duke series. Originally featured as part of a limited edition collection, when the collection was unpublished, so too was In Need of a Duke.
When I received all my rights back, I put Aldora and Michael’s story through a rewrite, adding a new prologue, epilogue, characters, and expanded scenes. However, I still did not publish the book–until now. You see, when I met Aldora’s friends, I was intrigued. Here were new ladies dreaming of love. I could not simply forget those characters, and yet neither, given the timeline of the Heart of a Duke series, could I tell their stories, either. Then, one of Aldora’s friends spoke to me, and spurred the creation of The Heart of a Scandal series, the first ever Heart of a Duke spin-off!.
For those of you who’ve been looking for Aldora and Michael’s story, I hope you enjoy!
A caravan driven at breakneck speed through the hills of Montana is the least of Magdalena Baxter’s concerns. Evicted from their home, and due to soon give birth, the Gypsy woman is forced to follow her husband, Oswald, a drunk and abusive miner who hopes to find work in a neighboring town.
Despite calling Sweetwater Springs home, wealthy banker Caleb Livingston clings to his elitist East Coast ways. While this may have brought him prestige, he’s missed out on romance at every turn.
When Caleb’s buggy collides with the Baxters’ caravan, Oswald is instantly killed and Maggie goes into labor. Caleb manages to keep his guilt and terror at bay long enough to make her comfortable and deliver her baby, a harrowing and ultimately endearing experience. Can Maggie—now stranded with her newborn child—learn to trust again? Will Caleb overcome his sense of obligation and highbrow conceit to open his heart to lasting love?
