This first novel in a new Regency series from USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes is a spinoff of her highly popular Windham series.


The gossips whisper that the new Duke of Murdoch is a brute, a murderer, and even worse—a Scot. They say he should never be trusted alone with a woman. But Megan Windham sees in Hamish something different, someone different.

No one was fiercer at war than Hamish MacHugh, though now the soldier faces a whole new battlefield: a London Season. To make his sisters happy, he'll take on any challenge—even letting their friend Miss Windham teach him to waltz. Megan isn't the least bit intimidated by his dark reputation, but Hamish senses that she's fighting battles of her own. For her, he'll become the warrior once more, and for her, he might just lose his heart.


“The hero of THE TROUBLE WITH DUKES reminds me of Mary Balogh's charming men, and the heroine brings to mind Sarah MacLean's intelligent, fiery women... This is a wonderfully funny, moving romance, not to be missed!” —Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author of My American Duchess

“Grace Burrowes writes from the heart--with warmth, humor, and a generous dash of sensuality, her stories are unputdownable! If you're not reading Grace Burrowes you're missing the very best in today's Regency Romance!” —Elizabeth Hoyt, New York Times bestselling author

“Sexy heroes, strong heroines, intelligent plots, enchanting love stories...Grace Burrowes's romances have them all.” —Mary Balogh, New York Times bestselling author

THE TROUBLE WITH DUKES has everything Grace Burrowes's many fans have come to adore: a swoonworthy hero, a strong heroine, humor, and passion. Her characters not only know their own hearts, but share them with fearless joy. Grace Burrowes is a romance treasure.” —Tessa Dare, New York Times bestselling author

THE TROUBLE WITH DUKES is captivating! It has everything I love in a book--a sexy Scotsman, a charming heroine, witty banter, plenty of humor, and lots of heart.” —Jennifer Ashley, New York Times bestselling author of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie


The Trouble With Dukes, #1
Too Scot To Handle, #2


From the start it was fun to visit with the Windham's again. Most of the original cast from the first series make an appearance in the book and try to play a part in the match making. Once again there are Windham daughters who need husbands. While the main Windham family have all found their HEA there are some cousins who have not and they surely cannot find their soul mate without help. That help is something that Megan Windham does not want or need. When she meets Hamish MacHugh she finds just what she is looking for. She sees the man behind the gossip and she likes what she sees. He sees someone who can be his salvation but their path is not without problems. Look for a great story full of tension and romance. One of my very favorite things is how Hamish manages to change the titles of the Windham men to something similar but funny. I got several good laughs out of those scenes. Burrowes does a good job of injecting humor into some of the serious moments in the story. Megan is just the first of 3 sisters to find that perfect husband. I look forward to more great scenes with all of the Windham's.


Grace Burrowes grew up in central Pennsylvania and is the sixth out of seven children. She discovered romance novels when in junior high (back when there was such a thing), and has been reading them voraciously ever since. Grace has a bachelor's degree in political science, a bachelor of music in music history, (both from Pennsylvania State University); a master's degree in conflict transformation from Eastern Mennonite University; and a juris doctor from the National Law Center at the George Washington University.

Grace writes Georgian, Regency, Scottish Victorian, and contemporary romances in both novella and novel lengths. She's a member of Romance Writers of America, and enjoys giving workshops and speaking at writers' conferences. She also loves to hear from her readers, and can be reached through her website or her social channels.


I asked Grace what her top five places to travel for inspiration were and here are her answers.?

Between the pages of a good book. I have learned so much, had such fun, and gathered up so many cool ideas by reading. Who needs frequent flier miles when we have all these lovely books?

Anywhere on horseback. When I’m in the saddle, my mind works differently. I might arrive to the barn stuck for where my manuscript should go next, but as I’m trotting this way and that, nonverbally communicating with my trusty steed, ideas bubble up. I love that. I think for many people, this happens while jogging, gardening, or otherwise being absorbed in a pleasure.

The United Kingdom. Many of my books are set in the UK, and I go there every chance I get. I never know what snippet of conversation I’ll overhear, road sign I’ll spot, or joke I’ll be told that simply MUST find its way into a book.

Roadtrips! I’ve driven from DC to San Diego and back more times than I can count. Behind the wheel of my truck, rolling down the interstates, I often get to thinking, and thinking leads to imagining, and that leads to interesting books.

Armstrong Redwoods State Nature Reserve (California). I love big trees, and the citizens of this forest are very big and very old. They humble me and put my little worries into perspective. I can hear myself think when I’m around big trees, and I’m less anxious. I don’t know why that is, but it’s been true about me from little up.
