Download and read online What the Duke Wants in PDF and EPUB What happens when a staid duke with a tragic past meets an accident-prone young lady just waiting for the day when she comes into her inheritance? Anything! What the Duke Wants is everything a Regency Romance should be – charming, witty, suspenseful, and above all ... sexy. Amy Quinton brings you Book 1 of her spicy new Regency series, Agents of Change. She is from trade. He is a duke and a spy with a name to restore and a mystery to solve. England, 1814: Miss Grace Radclyffe is an oftentimes hilariously clumsy 20-year-old orphan biding her time living with her uncle until she is old enough to come into her small inheritance. Much to her aunt’s chagrin, she isn’t reserved (not with her shocking! tendency to befriend the servants), sophisticated (highly overrated if one cannot run around barefoot outside), or graceful (she once flung her dinner into a duke’s face... by accident, of course). But she is practical (owning a fashion house is in her future, unless someone foils her plans...) and in love... maybe... perhaps... possibly... The Duke of Stonebridge is a man with a tragic past. His father died mysteriously when he was twelve years old amid speculation suggesting that the old duke was ‘involved’ with another man. He must restore his family name, but on the eve of his engagement to the perfect debutante, he meets his betrothed’s cousin, and his world is turned inside out... No matter; he is always logical (men who follow their hearts and not their heads are foolish) and reserved (his private life is nobody’s business but his own). He isn’t impulsive (it always leads to trouble), charming (that’s his best friend, the Marquess of Dansbury’s, area of expertise). Or in love... maybe... perhaps... possibly... Can he have what he wants and remain respectable? Can she trust him to be the man she needs? Content Notes: Spicy, Historical, Regency, Suspense

Download and read online The King Who Had To Go in PDF and EPUB that has fascinated the public for decades. Unwilling to accept the idea of the twice-married American as future Queen of England, the government was determined to pressure the King into giving up Mrs Simpson and, when that failed, into giving up his crown. The King's phone lines were tapped by his own government, dubious police reports poisoned Mrs Simpson's reputation, and threats to sabotage her divorce were deployed to edge the King towards abdication. The hopeless attempts of the King's allies, particularly Winston Churchill, to keep him on the throne were dismissed as sinister conspiracy, whilst the King wrecked his own chances with wildly unrealistic goals and ill-thought-out schemes that served only to frame him as erratic and unreliable as a monarch. As each side was overwhelmed by desperation and distrust, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin fought to steer events to a smooth conclusion. In this fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the royal abdication crisis of 1936, Adrian Phillips reveals the previously untold story of the hidden political machinations and insidious battles in Westminster and Whitehall that settled the fate of the King and Mrs Simpson.
