Blame It on the Duke Blame It on the Duke by Lenora Bell is $1.99! I’m confused as to whether this has a fake relationship or a marriage of convenience, but it has some element of that. Readers found that book was overly dramatic at times, though others really loved the heroine. It has a 3.7-star rating on Goodreads. Have you heard? The future Duke of Barrington has just been gambled away by his father. To an heiress! The delicious details thus far… Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, never intended to marry—nor add to the “mad” Hatherly line—but now he must honor his father’s debt to a social-climbing merchant or lose the family estate.

In addition to taxing the villages to the point of starvation, the Peacekeepers also control shadowy entities called the Vachryn, which both eat the memories of their victims, and leave them unable to form new memories. Rumours abound of a Robyn Hode, an outlaw who supposedly killed his family by magic, and who seems to have taken on a symbolism of his own among the populace – is he fighting the Peacekeepers and the Vachryn, or robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, or is he simply the criminal that…
