Her Grace's Passion by M. C. Beaton

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Matilda, Duchess of Hadshire is terribly unhappily married to a man more interested in his collection of beautiful artefacts and his new mistress than his pretty, headstrong wife. At a ball she catches the eye of the Earl of Torridon, who is also unhappily married, but in a society where divorce is scandalous what chance of happiness do they have? The third in a series of mini romances starting with The Scandalous Lady Wright and originally published under the name Marion Chesney, long before Hamish Macbeth or Agatha Raisin were ever conceived. A light, enjoyable read.

If you like M. C. Beaton you might also like to read books by Catriona McPherson, Simon Brett and Georgette Heyer.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Her Grace's Passion by M. C. Beaton

Matilda, Duchess of Hadshire, was a virtual prisoner of a cruel husband who romanced his mistress right under the duchess' nose. Her only joy was dreaming of the handsome Earl of Torridon - for he, like her, was trapped in a horrid marriage and longed to find true love and happiness. Though she secretly wished for the death of her unkind husband, Matilda never imagined the guilt that would plague her when the illustrious duke was befittingly murdered by his own regular lady! When Matilda turned to Torridon for comfort, she discovered a few surprises in store for both of them.

About the Author

M. C. Beaton

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
