Playing the Duke’s Mistress

“Every actress wants to marry a duke!”

Every actress, it seems, apart from leading lady Miss Calista Fairmont. And for Darius Carlyle, the Duke of Albury, that poses a challenge he can’t resist. So, to prove to his hapless cousin that all actresses are title-hunters, Darius will persuade Calista to assent to his marriage proposal!

Calista wants nothing to do with Darius, but when she discovers the compassionate man behind the arrogant duke she also uncovers an attraction that addles her senses … Before long she’s considering her own proposal—to become his mistress!

Per il cuore di un’attrice (For the Heart of an Actress)

Londra, 1852 – Tutte le attrici mirano a sposare un nobile. Tutte, tranne Miss Calista Fairmont a quanto pare, o almeno così dichiara lei stessa durante una cena. Un’affermazione che rappresenta una vera e propria sfida per Darius Carlyle, Duca di Albury, che ha visto troppi uomini della sua famiglia finire nelle grinfie arriviste di donne di quella categoria, non ultimo il cugino, innamorato di una di loro.

Deciso a dimostrargli che sbaglia a giudicare la futura sposa e che tutte le attrici sono solo cacciatrici di titoli, Darius scommette con lui che riuscirà a persuadere la reticente Calista a sposarlo. Peccato che alla giovane bastino pochi incontri per abbattere ogni pregiudizio del nobile e per farlo innamorare perdutamente. Ora che è un duca a voler sposare un’attrice, saprà farsi perdonare e conquistare il cuore della donna?
