Welcome to the new world from Alexa Aston—Dukes Done Wrong.

Accused of something they never did. Five boys banished from their homes in disgrace, to the place where they find the brothers of their heart—and build new family ties that will last a lifetime.

A lonely army captain who suddenly finds himself a duke. A gentleman’s daughter running an estate because her father no longer can. Two lonely souls whose sparks are undeniable...

Miles Notley returns home as the new the new Duke of Winslow after being sent away for accidentally killing his younger brother when he was ten years old, an act his older brother committed—and denied. With his brother’s death, Miles finds himself in unfamiliar waters. He has no idea how to run an estate, much less be a duke. Until he meets an intriguing young woman.

Emery Jenson came to Wildwood ten years ago with her parents, hired to be the estate’s steward and housekeeper. She has taken on more responsibility as her father’s mind grows weak and now runs the ducal country seat. When the new duke shows up, she schemes to hide her father’s deficiencies, believing the Duke of Winslow won’t remain long since the Season is in full swing and he will need to claim a bride and provide an heir.

But Miles isn’t going anywhere. He becomes captivated not only by Emery’s charm and confidence but admires her skills in making Wildwood a profitable estate. Miles decides no one but Emery can be his duchess—and he is up for the challenge, ready to convince the blunt beauty in the battle of wills that they can both come up winners—if she will only say yes.

Will Emery, who thinks she has found her place in the world and urges Miles to now find his, discover that the best place she can be is at the Duke of Winslow’s side?

Know the Heroine from The Comtesse of Midnight, in Storm & Shelter, a Bluestocking Belles with Friends Collection

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

She likes to enjoy a glass of fine imported brandy.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Some fresh hot buttered bread.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

She prefers elegant gowns, but when working, trousers are more practical.

Does she know how to fix things?

She is not a helpless female. She has learned to do many things for herself.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

The storm that hit Fenwick on Sea was far stronger than anticipated. Now her sloop is beached, the mast broken and there’s no telling what will happen to it before the storm abates.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She is prepared to enjoy their company, or gently curb their exuberance if need be.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She is usually just turning in then, since her business requires her to work nights.

How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?

She finds proper British society a bit stuffy and delights in poking at the conventions.

Maid or takes care of herself?

Alas, her maid left months ago when she was unable to continue paying her salary.

Proper dress or casual clothes?

Most proper, when the occasion calls for it; and most improper when required.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

Buttoned, usually. It’s cold on the water.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Powdered wigs went out of style ages ago, mon petit!

Carriage or horseback?

Horseback. Alas, the late Comte had to sell the carriage to pay debts.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

A beautiful widow at the mercy of selfish relatives . . .

A duke broken by a terrible secret . . .

Lady Elise Ruthersby is with child when her husband is killed, and his family awaits the birth to see who will be the new earl. A daughter arrives, relegating Elise to the status of a servant as she becomes the unpaid governess to her two nephews.

Weston Wallace, the Duke of Treadwell, learns a devastating secret about his fiancée the night before their wedding, causing him to break their engagement. He becomes London’s most notorious rake, with a firm rule that he only beds a woman once.

When Elise and her daughter are trapped in a carriage struck by a flaming tree in a perilous storm, Weston rescues the pair. Years of cynicism fall to the wayside as he becomes captivated by the beautiful widow and her enchanting daughter. Weston decides he must marry the woman who has thawed his cold heart without scaring her away because of his vile reputation.

The two strike a bargain where Elise will help Weston navigate the Marriage Mart during the upcoming Season if he will help her find a husband. Little does the unsuspecting widow know that London’s most infamous womanizer has already decided who his duchess will be.

Can the Duke of Disrepute convince Elise that he’s a changed man—due to love?
