Miss Eleanor Bowman loves Lord Ned, but he had married her best friend Cicely Headley who died in childbirth along with their offspring.  Though she grieved her loss, she hoped Ned would turn to her, but he did not.  Now four years since Cicely’s death, twenty-six year old Eleanor wants children so giving up on Ned, she seeks a husband before she becomes placed on the shelf.

 

Known as the “Duchess of Love”, Ned’s mother The Duchess of Greycliffe hosts her annual Valentine house party that Eleanor attends.  The duchess believes Ned and Ellie belong together, but her son still struggles with the death of his wife.  To Eleanor’s chagrin, her infamous silky red drawers that almost ended with her being labeled a Jezebel is in her bag.  Sir Reginald the cat steals her bloomers and dumps them in Ned’s room.  Though afraid to love again, the silky red drawers have Ned dreaming of loving Ellie if he dares take a chance on love and life.

 

This is an amusing lighthearted historical romance starring a grieving widow, an unrequited in love lady, a felonious cat, and the scandalous silky red bloomers.  Fast-paced from the moment the kleptomaniac Reggie pilfers the lingerie, fans will appreciate this Duchess of Love madcap romantic comedy.
