The Great Pick Up Line
Welcome Carly Carson as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Duke of Devonwood.
Take it away Carly!
“It was just a kiss,” Miranda said, her voice trembling. “We weren’t exactly down and dirty on the schoolroom table.”
The duke’s eyes gleamed. “Now there’s an interesting idea,” he said. “Glad to know our minds are running in the same direction.”
“In your dreams!”
“No,” he corrected. “In my fantasies.”[/quote]
Duke of Devonwood by Carly Carson
This is a contemporary romance (not historical).
Miranda’s father left her inheritance under the trusteeship of a Duke of England? Did he not realize this is the twenty-first century? She is certainly capable of managing her own money. More importantly, she needs that money to start her business, and to keep her family together.
She is not about to sit around while some arrogant Duke tells her what she can do with her own inheritance. Luckily, she’s determined, hard-working, and a touch devious. She vows to do whatever it takes to foil the Duke…
The Duke of Devonwood doesn’t want more dependents. With an entire dukedom to run, plus his father’s second family to manage, he has too many people hanging on his coattails already. But this headstrong American, Miranda, won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. In fact, she soon has his other dependents conniving with her—and against him.
He could handle the problem…if only she weren’t so enticing.
About Carly Carson
Carly will probably never marry into the British nobility, as she is already happily married to Traveling Man. But there’s nothing wrong with a little fantasy in one’s life, right? She has three children, who provide a daily dose of reality, even though they are almost perfect (just ask them!). Carly loves traveling, outdoor sports, reading, and visiting with friends and her large extended family.
