Can her gentle tenacity unlock a duke’s heart?
Lady Tricia Riley is the sweet daughter of a duke until her family's ailments force her to breech societies’ dictates and go where no lady should… the docklands. When a tall, strong and handsome stranger helps to keep her safe, she agrees to keep their meeting, secret. She’s no interest in marrying a tall and darkly handsome stranger. Actually, she has no intention of marrying at all. Instead, she plans to dedicate herself to charitable pursuits.
Ryker Pembroke, Duke of Landon, will marry eventually, as duty requires him to do. But it is a fate, he regards with a certain amount of dread. That is, until an auburn haired minx bursts into his life. Her warmth, charm and giving nature draws him to her even as he attempts to maintain a safe distance. She is entirely wrong for him with her impulsive nature and blatant disregard for her own safety makes her a terrible choice for a wife… doesn’t it?
This is a stand-alone romance with a lovely HEA! The heroine does appear in the Earl of Sussex: Wicked Earls' Club. And the books that follow will all be connected with the Earl of Sussex and his lovely bride, Tabbie.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and Lady Tricia Riley’s family was desperate. Throwing caution to the wind, she broke all of society’s rules by secretly journeying to a rough and seedy area, the docklands. When the native ne’er-do-wells find easy prey, Lady Tricia is rescued by a tall, dark and handsome gentleman in a most gallant and rather swoon worthy way.
Ryker Pembroke, Duke of Landon wasn’t planning on rescuing a cultured young woman amidst the opium dens of the docklands any more than he was planning on thinking of marriage, at least not now. He also wasn’t planning on every having to see her again, but there was just “something” about her. Tricia was innocent, yet determined, warm, caring, everything he definitely didn’t need at the moment, and yet…
Tammy Andresen has done it again! MY DUKE’S SEDUCTION is another fun, fast and sweetly spicy historical romance where two souls cannot avoid the inevitable as once again, Fate steps in and plays cupid in the most delightful way! Tricia isn’t looking for a husband to control her life. She has her own plans and goals. Ryker will marry when he has to, to procure the expected heir. No one can predict if and when love arrives, and for these two, it arrives with a bang that will leave readers smiling!
I truly enjoy Ms. Andresen's romantic tales! They are filled with humor, a little daring and always, always the most delightful characters and situations!
