WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DUKE MAKES was inspired by Mary Poppins and Jane Eyre.

Miss Mari Perkins is determined, optimistic, and she’s definitely not going to take no for an answer. She’s had a hard lot in life. She was raised in a charity orphanage and punished for being too outspoken. She’s a dreamer, and she’s only been able to have adventures in her imagination. Now it’s time for her to start truly living life, and what better place to have an adventure than in the arms of a duke?

Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is obsessed with creating a high-powered steam engine for a new kind of locomotive. His work and his world are turned upside down when he discovers he is father to a set of unruly twins who come to live with him in London. When he hires Mari as governess to the children, she transforms them with her warmth, quick wits, and unconventional educational methods. But he soon finds that she’s transforming him as well…opening his heart and teaching him how to love.




Check out Edgar and Mari's love story in What a Difference a Duke Makes.



Wanted: Governess for duke's unruly children

Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have chased away half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.

Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke

Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won't be quite so easy to control. And there's something else she can't seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time the duke is near.

Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny

As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she's the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win . . .?

  20. Omg �� I'm so late to the party! But I truly Flove this. Just like in the lovely love letter , it is a cliche but I'm a sucker for the governess/Duke(titled Gentleman) trope. ����
