About this ebook

"Charis Michaels will make you believe in fairy tales."— #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn

USA Today bestselling author Charis Michaels concludes her Awakened by a Kiss series with another enchanting romance, this time telling the real story of Cinderella’s stepsister and the man who can’t help falling in love with her.

A Former Ugly Duckling... 

Miss Drewsmina “Drew” Trelayne is a former awkward child and one-time wicked stepsister. Raised by a bitter, overbearing mother, Drew is all grown up and has made peace with her orange hair and bean-pole height. Her transformation has inspired her dream of opening a finishing school that emphasizes inner beauty, capability, and confidence. But launching a school costs money so Drew must begin with private clients who pay well and don’t ask many questions. 

A Reclusive Duke...

Ian Clayblack, the Duke of Lachlan, lives alone on his Dorset estate, forced by scandal into a smuggler’s life. When his estranged sister arrives with her two daughters, he feels obligated to give the girls a proper Season. Venturing back to society could clear his name and provide his vagabond nieces with a better life. Who better to help than the striking Miss Trelayne? 

A Midnight Kiss...

Affording Drew’s services isn’t a problem for Lachlan, but his growing desire for her is. As his nieces warm to her gentle charm, he is overwhelmed by her unique beauty and open manner. When they’re caught in a scandalous embrace, nothing short of marriage will save all of them from further scandal.

Can a marriage made in haste be love’s saving grace?

Everyone deserves a happily ever after… even the former bad girl Drewsmina Trelayne and His Grace, the disgraced Duke of Lachlan from “A Duchess by Midnight” by Charis Michaels! I recommend reading this book! This book is entertaining, hilarious, and sweet. Oh, then there are the declarations at the end, so good!!

To help his nieces prepare for their come-out, duke Ian hires spinster Drew. Forced to marry, can they find love together? I adore this series and love this book! The hero and heroine both made mistakes in the past and are struggling to find their place in the world. The attraction between them isn't just physical—they sense kindred spirits in each other. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received.

About the author

USA Today bestselling author Charis Michaels believes a romance novel is a long, entertaining answer to the question, “So, how did you two meet?” and she loves making up new ways for fictional characters to meet and dislike each other before falling in love instead. She grew up on a peach farm in Texas and gave tours at Disney World in college but now can be found raising her family and writing love stories from her screened-in porch in Northern Virginia.
