Next up after Project Duchess is The Bachelor. This one is available on Kindle Unlimited so I didn’t have to purchase this one.
The Duchess of Armitage has married and buried three husbands, all of whom bore the title of Duke at the time of their death. This series is about her children. She gave birth to three future dukes as well as a daughter and an additional son. The Bachelor concerns her only daughter, Lady Gwyn Drake, the twin of the Duke of Thornstock.
Major Joshua Wolfe left to join the Royal Marines, not too long after his father died in a duel. He moves up in the ranks, before his injury in a battle at sea. Now he must walk with a cane and is on half pay.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In the book The Bachelor, we see Lady Gwyn and Joshua, who met in Project Duchess. Since Beatrice is now gone and married Grey, Joshua does his best to be reinstated into the Marines. That means he must go to London.
Lady Gwyn is in a pickle of her own. Captain Malet is blackmailing her. But Joshua stumbles across the two, leading Thorn, Gwyn’s brother to hire Joshua as a bodyguard for Lady Gwyn. How will she pay Malet off? What happens when Joshua and Lady Gwyn go to London? Read this one to find out!
The Bachelor is available on Kindle Unlimited. Don’t go into this one expecting a clean romance. Lady Gwyn is just as passionate as Beatrice. There are sexy times, but only after they get to know one another. This is not one of those where they immediately jump into bed with one another.
BUT most importantly, there is a short story about Lady Gwyn’s youngest brother, Colonel Lord Heywood Wolfe that comes between Project Duchess and The Bachelor. I did not know about it until after I had started this one. Yet, I do recommend reading that one first. (I just read it later).
