The Duke's Refuge
When love comes in a tempest, who knew it would wear pink?
Georgia Lennox has traded in her boyish ways for pink gowns and a coy smile to capture the eye of the Earl of Claremont. However, on the day she's convinced the earl will propose, Georgia is shipped off to the Leeward Islands to care for her ailing father. But when she arrives on Nevis, the last thing she expects is to learn that her abrupt departure was not at her father's bidding but that of the infuriating, yet captivating, island schoolmaster. And now her plans may well be shipwrecked.
Harrison Wells is haunted by the memories of his deceased wife and hunted by the subsequent women who aspire to be the next Duchess of Linton. Desiring anonymity, he finds sanctuary in the Leeward island of Nevis. He's willing to sacrifice his ducal title for a schoolmaster's life and the solace the island provides. That is until unrest finds its way to Nevis in a storm of pink chiffon—Miss Georgia Lennox. As Georgia and Harrison's aspirations break apart like a ship cast upon the rocks, a new love surfaces, but secrets and circumstances drag them into rough waters. Can they surrender their hearts to a love that defies their expectations?
About Lorri Dudley (Boston, Massachusetts Author)
Lorri started writing romance novels as a “girlie” outlet from her testosterone-filled household. She has a wonderfully supportive husband and three very active boys who love to wrestle, catch bugs, and play in the mud. Writing romance is her way of escaping back into the softer, feminine side of life.
She enjoys creating suspenseful tension and vibrant characters and desires for readers to live through her heroines, experience their devastating lows and euphoric joys, and grow in the process. Her objective is to write books where readers tell their kids, “Mommy’s going to take a bath” and then end up staying in the tub until the water is freezing because they can’t put the book down. She hopes her readers will be able to relax and temporarily escape the pressures of this world, as they enjoy the struggles and revel in the conquests for happily ever after.
Lorri now resides in Massachusetts with her husband and three boys. When she’s not working on her next book, she’s assisting her entrepreneurial husband, leading small groups within her church, and carting her kids from one sport to another.
