"Do you know why I called you to my study at such a late hour, Lady Alexandra?" Headmaster Maurice de Marchand's hand disappeared beneath his imposing desk at her approach, but Alexandra dared not glance down to note it.

She didn't want to imagine what his hands were up to, concealed from her view.
Friday 56:
Piers had to force himself not to lock her in their rooms while he booked immediate passage back to Devonshire.

Where he could secure her in the tower of Castle Redmayne.

Something about the whiff of impending danger made a man want to cosset those closest to him in a fortress.
This week I am spotlighting How to Love a Duke in Ten Days by Kerrigan Byrne. I got this historical romance from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
These men are dark, bold, and brave. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees...

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past―one that she pays a blackmailer to keep buried. Now, with her family nearing bankruptcy, Alexandra strikes upon a solution: Get married to one of the empire’s most wealthy eligible bachelors. Even if he does have the reputation of a devil.


Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride. Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff. Then, Alexandra enters his life like a bolt of lightning. When she proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps. But her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens every fierce desire within him. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe in his arms.
