In the first novel in Christy Carlyle’s sizzling Duke’s Den series, three men, intent on making a fortune, discover irresistible opportunities

Nicholas Lyon gambled his way into a fortune and ownership of the most opulent, notorious gentlemen’s club in England. But when Nick’s cruel brother dies, he inherits a title he never wanted. The sooner Nick is rid of the estate that has always haunted him, the sooner he can return to the life he’s built in London. But there’s one obstacle—the exquisite Thomasina Thorne.

When the new heir to the Tremayne dukedom suddenly appears in Mina Thorne’s life, she’s flustered. Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he’s also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate. If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind—as long as she doesn’t get too close to him.

With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?

Out NOV 27th!

This is the first book by Christy Carlyle that I have had the great pleasure to read.  I love how independently strong both Mina and Nick are but when they are together their vulnerabilities are bared for the other to see.  The trauma of Nicks childhood gives him such depth of character it would have been easy for Mina’s character to be lacking in compassion, but impressively this author used her unwavering loyalty to give her a depth that matches his.  I really enjoyed this book and these characters and I cannot wait to see what comes next in this series.
