The Match of the Century
Marrying the Duke
By New York Times bestselling author
Is her perfect match the husband of her dreams… or the lover of her fantasies?
Avon Books is excited to present the first novel in a glittering new series by New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell. Wedding bells are ringing in The Match of the Century, until the return of a rake throws a bride’s plans – and heart – into a tailspin. Earning a starred review from Publishers Weekly, Maxwell’s latest novel shows why she’s one of romance’s most beloved and acclaimed authors.
Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London’s most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict.
Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet “family obligations,” now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire.
As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty…?
CATHY MAXWELL spends hours in front of her computer pondering the question, “Why do people fall in love?” It remains for her the great mystery of life and the secret to happiness. She lives in beautiful Virginia with children, horses, dogs, and cats. Fans can contact Cathy at www.cathymaxwell.com or PO Box 1135, Powhatan, VA 23139.
