A USA Today Bestseller, Publishers Weekly Starred Review recipient, and 2018 RITA® Finalist, The Demon Duke is the first in Margaret Locke's new Put Up Your Dukes Regency historical romance series.


"Locke has outdone herself with this sensitive, splendid Regency and her portrayal of its disabled hero...(T)he real value to this romance is Locke's depiction of the lovers overcoming the social obstacles that others create out of fear and suspicion of Damon's disability. This tale of hope and courage will appeal to Regency readers across the board. - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review


“Regency romance lovers will savor this story, interspersed with perfect amounts of romance, intrigue and redemption.” - InD’Tale Magazine

___________


Banished to Yorkshire as a boy for faults his father failed to beat out of him, Damon Blackbourne has no use for English society and had vowed never to return to his family's estate at Thorne Hill, much less London. However, when his father and brother die in a freak carriage accident, it falls on Damon to take up the mantle of the Malford dukedom, and to introduce his sisters to London Society-his worst nightmare come to life.


He never planned on Lady Grace Mattersley. The beautiful debutante stirs him body and soul with her deep chocolate eyes and hesitant smiles. Until she stumbles across his dark secret.


Bookish Grace much prefers solitude and reading to social just-about-anything. Her family may be pressuring her to take on the London Season to find herself a husband, but she has other ideas. Such as writing a novel of her own. But she has no idea how to deal with the Duke of Malford.


Will she betray him to the world? Or will she be his saving Grace?

An award-winning magical romantic comedy in which a bookstore owner must choose between fantasy and reality after realizing the men she's dating are characters she'd created years before...

"Locke breaks down tropes--the popular jock and the thoughtful poet--and puts cracks in their shining armor with humor and insight...Blending romance with whimsical fantasy, Locke's story offers up a look at the expectations of youthful fancy vs. the realities of an adult love." - Library Journal


-------


What would you do if you discovered the men you were dating were fictional characters you'd created long ago?


Thirty-five-year-old Catherine Schreiber has shelved love for good. Keeping her ailing bookstore afloat takes all her time, and she’s perfectly fine with that. So when several men ask her out in short order, she’s not sure what to do ... especially since something about them seems eerily familiar.


A startling revelation -- that these men are fictional characters she’d created and forgotten years ago -- forces Cat to reevaluate her world and the people in it. Because these characters are alive. Here. Now. And most definitely in the flesh.


Her best friend, Eliza, a romance novel junkie craving her own Happily Ever After, is thrilled by the possibilities. The power to create Mr. Perfect -- who could pass that up? But can a relationship be real if it’s fiction? Caught between fantasy and reality, Cat must decide which -- or whom -- she wants more.


Blending humor with unusual twists, including a magical manuscript, a computer scientist in shining armor, and even a Regency ball, A Man of Character is a whimsical-yet-thought-provoking romantic comedy that tells a story not only of love, but also of the lengths we'll go for friendship, self-discovery, and second chances.
