‘Smart, sexy, and always romantic’ Julia Quinn, Sunday Times bestselling author of the Bridgerton series
‘Fabulous’ Eloisa James
For a smart, witty and passionate historical romance, I recommend anything by Sarah MacLean’ Lisa Kleypas

The third in Sarah MacLean’s sensational new Scandal & Scoundrels series . . . all the fun and guilty pleasure of celebrity gossip, with a Regency twist!

The one woman he will never forget . . .

Marcus Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer’s end. There is only one problem – he already has one.

The one man she will never forgive . . .

After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal – to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal; Sera can have her freedom, just as soon as she finds her replacement… which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want, but somehow cannot resist.

A love that neither can deny

The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day . . . the day of the Duchess!

This is the third novel in the Regency romance Scandal & Scoundrels series by New York Time bestselling author Sarah MacLean – perfect for fans of Lisa Kleypas and Eloisa James

Stunning descriptions (an underwater ballroom is breathtaking), enlightening historical detail that tempts further research, and brilliant use of the constellations make this smart historical romance another classic from the matchless MacLean

That's Normal
I'm unabashedly obsessed with all of Sarah MacLean's books, but in The Day of the Duchess she has outdone herself . . . my favorite book I've read so far this year
MacLean once again dazzles readers with her literary prowess by delivering another perfectly matched pair of protagonists, a surfeit of amusing secondary characters, stellar use of sensuality, and polished writing generously seasoned with her inimitable, irresistible sense of wit
Heroes and Heartbreakers
This book was deeply emotional, kept me up far too late/early, and is Sarah MacLean's most feminist, powerful, beautifully written book to date
Starred Bookpage (Top Pick in Romance!)
Witty banter, entertaining secondary characters, and a poignant use of Greek myth are the delicious icing on this lovely, romantic story
RT Book Reviews
Smart, strong, sensual scandalous and wondrous - don't miss this one!
Kirkus Reviews
MacLean delivers a dense, richly woven tale of betrayal and grief and family loyalty. A thrilling story of love reborn
