Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Eloisa James returns to the Wildes series with a prequel about the Wilde children's parents, Hugo, duke of Lindow, and Ophelia, Lady Astley. 

Every duke needs a duchess.... 

Hugo Wilde, the duke of Lindow, has a drafty castle, eight naughty children - and no wife. Ophelia, Lady Astley, has a fine house, one well-behaved daughter - and no husband. Hugo takes one look at Ophelia and loses his heart, but she doesn’t want more children or a castle. She takes one look at him and heads for her carriage. Desperate to find a duchess, Hugo identifies an appropriate lady to woo. Yet when he meets Ophelia again, the duke realizes that he will marry her or no one. 

Now he faces the greatest challenge of his life. He must convince Ophelia that their blazing sensuality, his exquisite castle, and his eight charming children add up to a match made in heaven. 

When duke finds his duchess, can he win her heart?

Dreamy prequel. As always great narration from Susan Duerden

My Last Duchess is a lovely prequel novella to the Wilde series. Hugo is a dreamy Hero and Ophelia a lovable and relatable Heroine. Love the inclusion of the rare, historical Frost Fair event. How magical a frozen Thames must have been! This book was a treat from start to finish.

Delightful!

A lovely prequel to the series, this book was just as fun to read as I'd hoped! This would be a pleasure to read whether you've read all of the other series books, or none at all. The narrator did a lovely job as well. 😊

Loved it

just what you would expect from this series, which in these uncertain times, is a godsend.
