Any Duchess Will Do takes us back to Spindle Cove and introduces an enterprising serving girl, Pauline. She is every bit as spunky and original as the earlier heroines in this series.

Pauline is whisked off to London to undergo a Pygmalian-esque makeover by a Duchess who is desperate for grandchildren. Her son, the Duke, has picked Pauline out of a roomful of possible brides-to-be as the most unlikely prospect.

Pauline, of course, proves irresistible to said Duke, with or without a metamorphosis.
