Aphrodite and the Duke
‘Bridgerton lovers have found their next read in Aphrodite and the Duke’ – Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author of A Duke Worth Falling For
Aphrodite wishes to escape the marriage mart but will a second chance with the elusive Duke of Everely change her mind?
Aphrodite Du Bell is a diamond of the first water and a favourite of the queen. But her renowned loveliness didn’t stop the love of her life, Evander Eagleman, from jilting her and marrying another woman four years ago.
Aphrodite has been in self-imposed exile ever since. However, when her formidable mother summons her back to London Aphrodite has no choice but to acquiesce.
Upon her return, Aphrodite learns that the newly widowed Evander is in town and, despite her best efforts, the grand society events of the season repeatedly push them together. With each encounter, Aphrodite’s traitorous feelings make it perfectly clear that the Duke still holds court over her heart.
Why did Evander cast Aphrodite aside all those years ago, and now that they have a second chance, can the couple make strides to mend past hurts?
