He suspects his duchess is not an innocent...
She wishes her duke were a little more worldly
The former Jane Lemon’s overnight transformation into a duchess, thanks to her father’s deathbed maneuverings, has been something of a shock. She’s spent most of her life in London, where her mother’s free-spirited salons brought her into contact with a world of discreet, privileged sensuality. Now she has to deal with a stuffy duke who accuses her of being a tarnished woman. He wants a duchess who will make love in the dark of night, without any imaginative embellishments, for the sole purpose of producing an heir. If only he were willing to bend a little her way…
Cornelius, Duke of Sidmouth, has his limits. He assumed his arranged marriage to a Cornwall heiress would go as smoothly as his well-run estate, Bocollyn. A man expects decorum and modesty in his bride, not unbridled sensuality and wantonness. He can’t believe she left him on their honeymoon. When he returns home, she’s already there, in charge of his stables and living in his retired groomsman’s cottage. Now he has to start all over and woo his duchess.
Will she give him a second chance? Will he be able to suspend his pride a little to give her what she needs?

Andrea K. Stein is the daughter of a trucker and an artist. She grew up a scribbler. The stories just spilled out—the pony escaped, the window magically shattered. Not her fault. Twenty years as a journalist couldn't stifle the yarns. Yacht delivery up and down the Caribbean only increased the flow. Now those tales celebrate romance and adventure on the high seas.
She's a retired newspaper professional and sea captain living in the Rocky Mountains. As a sailing captain and instructor since 1996, she's logged over 20,000 miles to destinations around the world. Life at sea and the daring women down through history who accomplished what "just wasn't done" inspire her romance novels.
