Publisher's Summary

The story is like Under the Tuscan Sun goes to Cinderella's Royal Ball

Donna Smith has always dreamed of seeing how the other half lives. When she finds herself out of a job, she uses her downtime to finally get out and see the world, and her first destination is to witness a royal wedding in Avce.

With the first item checked off her bucket list, she sets out to check off the remaining items one by one…as soon as she can figure out how to sneak into the reception undetected and find a handsome stranger to lock lips with.

Blackwell Oberlin, the Duke of Oakley Woods, promised his father he’d one day marry, but on one condition: she has to be someone unlike anyone he’s ever met. When on a whim he plants a kiss on a beautiful stranger, he thinks he’s met the one, but before he knows what’s happened, she’s nowhere to be found and he can’t stop thinking about her.

Using his money and influence, he hires a security team and a girl with a sophisticated algorithm to find her. But when he does, will it lead to a happily-ever-after?

This USA Today best-selling author includes an all new dazzling romance and with tons of family drama! Fans of Danielle Steel, Ginny Baird, Melody Anne, and Nora Roberts will adore this series.

While this story is a standalone novel that belongs to the Marshall Family Saga, there are mentions of the House of Morgan, the Hawke Fortune, and even Princes of Avce characters and storylines are all intertwined in the same world.

interesting and captivating romance

I love the twist of the story. Who would have thought that Donna will marry Blackwell when she already had a fiance. I enjoyed the story a lot. Hoping to read more books from the same author and narrator.

AMAZING BOOK!!!

Aside from the exclusivity of the book and the author. I commend the narrator as well who showed a better way of providing detailed events of the book. The credibility of the author depicts by the way she fluently presents every series of the book. It's totally amazing! I guarantee.

Forbidden Duke

This is a whirlwind romance of a jilted fiance who decides to meet the sexy duke who needs to get married in a couple months time. Even though Donna has her reservations about being marriage material for Blackwell, love has won.
