Lady Cora Winfield’s life has always gone according to plan–her mother’s plan. That’s why Cora is so fascinated when she meets the dark Duke of Blackdell.

Kidnapped and facing a scandal, Lady Cora must now decide whether love will be her downfall or the beginning of a new plan, one she never dreamed possible.
Hello booknerds! This was an adorable quick read for me. A Persephone and Hades regency retelling! Lady Cora wants love. She wants to be married to someone that loves and knows her. That actually listens to her. Something that she is attracted to. Her mother on the other hand wants her settled with anyone that is close enough to her property, so that her precious girl will not be far. Talk about a controlling, manipulative mother! I would have ran away a long long time ago. Lady Cora has not, and as the last weeks of the season come to a close she meets a Duke! What mother would not want that? Well.. Countess Winfield would not, since he is a Scottish Duke and therefore so far away! He also come from a beast of a father and sons don’t fall far from their Sire’s tree. Ha ha. Love is love and sometimes you just have to kidnap the Lady for her to realize it! I’ll leave it at that, so as to not spoil the book but if you are in the mood for a cute proper read before bed… give this one a try!
