She had her whole life planned.
Katrina Needham intended to marry her beloved major and live happily-ever-after. Until he's seen with another woman. Distraught, and needing a distraction, she agrees to assist the rugged, and dangerously handsome privateer, The Saint of the Sea, find a wife.
He loves everything about being a sea captain.
When Dominic St. Monté unexpectedly inherits a dukedom and the care of his young sisters, he reluctantly decides he must marry. Afterward, he can return to the sea-faring life he craves and leave his duchess to oversee his dukedom.
Nic enlists a family friend's help in finding an acceptable bride and soon realizes Katrina possesses every characteristic he seeks in a duchess. However, he cannot ask for her hand. Not only is she promised to another, a man still determined to make her his, she has absolutely no interest in becoming a privateer's wife. Can Nic and Katrina relinquish their carefully planned futures and trust love to guide them?
Caution: This humorous historical Regency romance contains a scoundrel turned respectable duke, a precocious heroine whose tendency to say whatever scandalous thing that pops into her head lands her in scrapes, a spoiled feline with an attitude, and a sweet, meddling elderly aunt.
Buy this 4th installment in the Waltz with a Rogue historical Regency romance novella series for a rousing, emotional, and romantic adventure you can't put down.

This is an absolutely charming Regency novella. Nic's inner monologue was absolutely hilarious as he tries to navigate his way from being a privateer to being a duke; I loved the way that he realized early on that Katrina was the duchess he needed and the way he went all-out to make it happen.
Katrina was one of the best Regency heroines I've ever read. Daughter of a wealthy, self-made banker with half the Ton in his pocket, she is absolutely fearless, secure in the knowledge that her parents will have her back no matter what she chooses to do. It was quite an interesting change to read a Regency where the heroine has a supporting and loving family; a lot of the time the conflict in historicals is supplied by Family Issues. I enjoyed the change.
There were a few proofreading and editing issues in the book, which is why unfortunately I have to knock it down to four stars, but I did enjoy it very much and I'd happily read more of the author's work at any time.
