About the Book

#1 National Bestselling Historical Romance

Finalist for the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award

She married him for love. He married her for money. Can a marriage that started with lies turn into a ravishing love story for all time?

For the eight years of their marriage, sweet, innocent Gabriella Garrity has adored her powerful and darkly handsome husband Adam, whose moneylending empire has earned him the moniker of Duke of the City. Her domestic bliss is shattered when Adam suffers a traumatic accident. Although his life is saved, he loses his memory. Gabby dedicates herself to nursing him back to health…until devastating revelations destroy her illusions about their marriage.

From the moment he met beautiful redheaded Gabriella, Adam knew that she would make him the perfect wife. Guileless, biddable, and sweetly unaware of her own charms, she also holds the key to his secret plot for vengeance. A self-made man who rose from the darkest streets of London, he values control above all and will stop at nothing to gain his justice—until an accident robs him of his memory. As he fights to remember his past, he comes to a stunning realization: whoever he is, he is passionately in love with his own wife.

One by one, dark secrets emerge from Adam’s past as well as Gabby’s. The lovers struggle to steer a relationship gone off course…only to discover steamy marital adventures they never expected to find. All the while, a deadly villain lies in wait. Will husband and wife find the courage to trust one another and their love—before time runs out?

Find out in REGARDING THE DUKE, the scorching, long-awaited love story featuring anti-hero Adam Garrity and his beloved Gabby!

“The chemistry between the characters is absolutely explosive and almost too hot to handle. This was an incredibly steamy, emotional and all consuming read that I could read again and again.”

– Candace, Goodreads

“Regarding the Duke is classic GC. Adam is so sexy, especially after his head injury when he becomes so much less controlled and buttoned up and so much more… Adam. (#HeadInjuryAdamIsMyNewBookBoyfriend) And Gabby? Bless your heart, girl, I see you. Gabby doesn’t know what’s missing from her life and marriage until it drops into her lap, literally. How true is that for most of us?….If you like regency romance with a thin but dark thread of mystery, a dominant, tortured, but so damn sweet hero, and a leading lady who discovers who she is and what she wants, grab this one ASAP.”

Biscuits & Bodices

“Grace Callaway hits it out of the park once again with Regarding the Duke. It was no small feat to turn ruthless moneylender Adam Garrity into a smoldering hot hero in love with his wife Gabriella, but before the reader’s eyes, Adam transforms into the perfect passionate and protective male. And this Game of Dukes novel, just like its predecessors, comes with a generous helping of intriguing mystery and satisfying redemption.”

– Tina Folsom, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

“The characters [Grace Callaway] writes about are adorable. In past books the little wallflower Gabriella has been a sad sort of figure in the background, now she starts to bloom and grow into one hell of a woman….Don’t miss this exciting, sensual and emotional book from this brilliant author!

– Maggie, Goodreads

“I was blown away by the tenderness of their interactions. A wonderful story that will stay with me.

– Angela, Goodreads

“The sex is explicit but elegant, a combination that blows my mind every time I read a GC novel. Sexy but refined and so damn good.”

– Eliza, Biscuits & Bodices

“Adam and Gabby are totally sympathetic characters who are perfect for each other, despite their different backgrounds. I love the tropes of amnesia and convenient marriage, and both are done extremely well here. REGARDING THE DUKE is one of those books I didn’t want to put down, and read it all in one day.”

– Roses are Blue

“The amnesia trope was used expertly to add a whole new layer to the relationship between Gabby and Adam….I was thoroughly engaged with their romance and character development. Gabby coming out of her shell and finally seeing her self-worth and Adam realizing that he is already at peace with his past–both character arcs made the relationship development that much more emotional and special.”

– Romance Library

“I’m still ugly crying AF!! I am so in love with Adam and Gabby. This was the perfect blend of romance, steamy sex, and intrigue…My heart hurt for all the things Adam went through… and I cheered for Gabby as she emerged from her safe shell.”

– Estela Reads Romance
