Return to the breathtaking world of the HEART OF A DUKE...the USA Today bestselling series that is sure to leave you breathless and longing for more!

Lady Gillian Farendale is in trouble. Her titled father has dragged her through one London Season after another, until the sheer monotony of the marriage mart and the last vestige of Gillian's once-independent spirit conspire to lead her into a single night of folly. When her adventure goes so very wrong, she has only one old friend to whom she can turn for help.

Colin Lockhart's youthful friendship with Lady Gillian cost him everything, and a duke's by-blow had little enough to start with. He's survived years on London's roughest streets to become a highly successful Bow Street Runner, and his dream of his own inquiry agency is almost within his grasp.

Then Gillian begs him to once again risk angering her powerful father. The ruthless logic of the street tells Colin that he dare not help Gillian, while his tender heart tempts him to once again risk everything for the only woman he'll ever love.

Lady Gillian Farendale was a woman with her own mind, that generally landed her into trouble, and this time was no different, maneuvered into a scandal by a man with no honor, Gillian did the only thing she could do, reach out to her childhood friend, to enact a childhood promise. 

Colin Lockhart was a Duke's by blow and a man that took a lot of things on his shoulders, and the last thing he needed was Gillian turning up and bringing the bad memories, including the ones of her father evicting his mother, but Gillian was the only person who has ever tried to be his friend, and he made her a promise. 

Christi Caldwell's talent at writing blows me away with every book of hers that I read, but I have to say that The Heart of a Duke series has truly been one of my favorites and To Hold a Lady's Secret just adds to that successful series. The author also has the ability to write works that are new and refreshing and in the world of historical romance that is an outstanding thing to do. 

I give To Hold a Lady's Secret 5 stars 

USA Today Bestselling author, Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught's "Whitney, My Love," for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year-old son, and caring for her twin princesses in training!
