Four dukes. Two balls. One prizefight.
Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens will never be the same.

The royal festivities bring together the rich and the desperate, the criminal and the lordly…and allow four very different dukes to find the love of a lifetime.
A proper viscount is kidnapped by a duke of the criminal underworld, only to encounter a mysterious woman from his past.
A retired prizefighter, once known as the Duke of the Ring, stakes his reputation on a scrappy young boxer for the sake of a long-lost love.
A traveler who inherited a dukedom needs a tightrope dancer’s help with a fake engagement that just might turn real.
And the buccaneer son of a royal duke goes hunting for a respectable, highborn wife to salvage his scandalous reputation.
Let the pleasures begin...

Received for Review (from Authors)
What a wonderful anthology! Sometimes in an anthology, there is one story I don’t like as much as the others, but NOT in this case. The four stories are all very good and original. I especially enjoyed the mix of aristocracy and commoners. I liked all of the heroes and heroines, but I admit Godrick was my favorite hero. One of the nice things about anthologies is you can read them individually if you don’t have much reading time. I highly recommend this book.
Thanks to the authors for the ARC.
