This is book 2 of the Serendipity & Secrets Series. This is a historical christian read that puts us in an era of times when women were treated different and family life was controlled by the father. We meet our characters Charolette and Marcus with different backgrounds and worlds. Charlotte is having a difficult time getting around her families issues that are being kept secret. Marcus is the spy that is wanting to find a wife and settle down. When tradgedy strikes and Marcus is called to be the Duke of Haverly he feels compelled to step up and save Charolette. Can he do it? Can both of them hold onto faith and values to have a relationship? Where will all the secrets and changes end up? I would recommend this to anyone that wants a romance, drama, supsensful and adenturous read, and of course anyone that has read book one will need to read book 2. This is a continuation from book one but can be read as a stand alone as some characters in book 1 show up in book 2 but you don't miss anything if you haven't read it. If you are a fan of a romance with historical background this is for you.

About the book:
He only wanted a duchess for a day--but she's determined to make it a marriage for life
When his father and older brother suddenly pass away, the new Duke of Haverly is saddled with a title he never expected to bear. To thwart the plans of his scheming family, the duke impulsively marries a wallflower. After all, she's meek and mild; it should be easy to sequester her in the country and get on with his life--as a secret agent for the Crown.
But his bride has other ideas. She's determined to take her place not only as his duchess but as his wife. As a duchess, she can use her position to help the lowest of society--the women forced into prostitution because they have no skills or hope. Her endeavors are not met favorably in society, nor by her husband who wishes she'd remain in the background as he ordered.
Can the duke succeed in relegating her to the sidelines of his life? When his secrets are threatened with exposure, will his new wife be an asset or a liability?
