Spotlight on The Bachelor Duke by Cecilia Rene



Publication Date: July 25, 2020
Paperback & eBook; 296 pages

Series: The Bachelor Series, Book 1
Genre: Historical Romance



The Bachelor Duke meets a beautiful, curvaceous lady.

Remington Warren, The Duke of Karrington, lives his life by the name society has thrust upon him. Having witnessed cruelty against the fairer sex with his own eyes, he vows never to marry to prevent himself from becoming like the monster who raised him. After ten years of being The Bachelor Duke, his life is irrevocably changed when he sees Lady Olivia St. John across the ballroom floor.

Having lived a sheltered, pampered life, surrounded by her loving family, Lady Olivia St. John longs to know passion and love. She is beautiful, bold, and has a rather large dowry. According to society, she would be a diamond in the first water of this season if it wasn’t for her one flaw.

Will she find all she longs for and more in the arms of The Bachelor Duke, or will heartbreak be her demise?


Q&A with Cecilia Rene

Welcome, Cecilia and congratulations on the release of your debut historical romance, The Bachelor Duke. What should readers expect from this story?

Readers should expect a love story first and foremost, but also prepare yourself for some drama! Although it focuses on Remington & Livie, the secondary characters do wiggle their way into your hearts so be prepared!

The Bachelor Duke launches your The Bachelor series. How many books will there be in the series? Are you able to tell us anything about book two and when we might expect it?

There are 3 books but I recently had an idea for a 4th!  So we will see! Book 2, whew, I tend to want things fast, so I want Book 2 out in December but the reality is that it may be more January. Book 2 is about Henry & Julia. We know at the end of book 1 Henry left Julia only days before their wedding. Book 2 will find us 3 yrs later, and he’s back and she’s not happy!
