Eighteen-year-old Lily Hawthorn, daughter of a tavern owner, uses her remarkable gift of memory to aid the American cause. She disobeys her fiancé for an assignation at a tavern, little suspecting the danger she walks into. A man bent on revenge kidnaps her and her eight-year-old brother. When he realizes she's a woman, he takes her aboard his ship, planning to hold her in England until the war's conclusion. His revenge takes a different direction when he decides to make her fall in love with him, so that he might simply break her heart. A hollow victory indeed, if his own heart gets broken as well.
Patricia Grasso delivers a fast-paced tale of opposites attracted in TO TAME A DUKE. Challenges of loyalty and love bring these outstanding characters to life with witty dialogue and sharp motivation. The conflict between these two strong characters boils over into hatred, mistrust and searing passion. In addition, the beautifully realized younger brother adds a marvelous touch with his pet pig. With a complex plot weaving matters of the heart with political intrigue and bit of a mystery, TO TAME A DUKE provides delightful entertainment. Highly recommended.
