Spencer is a member of the elite “Stud Club,” where members share the right to breed the former racehorse Osiris. But Spencer does not want to share and becomes a suspect when the club founder is murdered.
Spencer is conceited and demanding, but also has a soft side that only emerges in the company of his horses. He embarks on an orchestrated plan of seduction to win over his wary wife.
Their marriage encounters a few hurdles, including a visit by Amelia’s delinquent brother Jack. He’s in trouble again and needs his sister’s help. Spencer risks it all when he makes Amelia choose between him and her brother.
Although the story begins with a murder, “One Dance with a Duke,” is not a murder mystery so much as the mystery of the ornery Spencer and how Amelia unravels the secret behind her husband’s peculiar ways.
Tessa Dare cleverly delves into the parallels between horse training and wife-wooing. Amelia is unconventional and rational - except when it comes to her brother Jack. And Spencer is a rare breed that any woman would want to claim.
Dare creates exceptional scenes that tease and titillate, providing the perfect combination of resistance with sweet surrender.
“One Dance with a Duke,” is the first book in the "Stud Club" trilogy. The second installment, “Twice Tempted by a Rogue,” will be released on June 22, followed by “Three Nights with a Scoundrel” on July 27.
