Waiting on Wednesday: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I'm a huge historical romance fan and I have a confession to make: I've never read one of Tessa Dare's books. I don't even know how I've gone so long without reading her work, as her books sound flippin' fantastic. My plan this summer is to fix that gap in my historical romance library and my Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week - The Duchess Deal - sounds like the perfect place to start. It's the first book in Ms. Dare's new Girl Meets Duke series and it sounds right up my alley :)

Title: The Duchess Deal
Series: Girl Meets Duke, Book 1
Author: Tessa Dare
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: August 22, 2017

Book Description (from Amazon):

When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…
Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:
- They will be husband and wife by night only.
- No lights, no kissing.
- No questions about his battle scars.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:
- They will have dinner together every evening.
- With conversation.
- And unlimited teasing.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…
