Rebellious Desire – Julie Garwood

Julie Garwood. Rebellious Desire(New York: Simon & Schuster, 1986). 0671701177.

Main Characters: Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford and Caroline Richmond.

Description from the book:

Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome–and most arrogant. And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one–Caroline Richmond.

She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke by his bold passion, Caroline vowed to tame his presumptuous airs and win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman–until a deadly intrigue drew them slowly together. Now, united against a common enemy, they would surrender to the exquisite desire that smoldered between them . . . a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!

Julie Garwood in another one of my favorite authors. Her stories are as enchanting as her characters – and most of her books are down-right laugh-out-loud funny. In Rebellious Desire, Caroline comes to the rescue of a gentleman who gets injured in an “awkward place.” Because the gentleman is rather embarrassed, he doesn’t want Caroline to know who is he – so, he christens him Mr. Smith. Later we find out that the gentleman is Beau Brummell, leader of the ton. This scene is hysterical.
