Following the death of her beloved father, Ella Winfield is devastated when her mother, a woman with untamed social aspirations, hastily marries the Earl of Dandridge. He is a humorless man, and one whom Ella does not trust for a moment.

Leaving her beloved Longton Manor behind, Ella is cast adrift in the large and unwelcoming Dandridge Hall, despite her desperate plea that her mother need not marry at all.

The Earl’s daughters, Lady Patience and Lady Georgiana, are spoiled and manner less young ladies, used to their own way in all things and fiercely competitive with one another. But when the Duke of Hillington is reported to be searching for a suitable bride, the tension between the sisters reaches new heights.

With Ella’s simple beauty, intelligence, and fine manners, the Earl seeks to hide her away from the world and, more importantly, the Duke of Hillington himself.

When he determines that Ella not attend a masquerade ball to which the whole family has been invited, Ella takes it upon herself to attend in disguise and spy on the ambitious little family for her own amusement.

When she finds herself in anonymous conversation with the Duke himself, she realizes that there is more to him than a man who would seek nothing more than a pretty bride with a large dowry. He is open and amusing and she finds herself quite captivated.

Rufus Darnley, the Duke of Hillington, cannot shake from his mind the curious and exciting young woman who appeared at his masquerade ball uninvited, and he can no longer find any enthusiasm for his search for a wife with whom he might provide an heir to the Duchy.

As the Earl of Dandridge plots the most appalling schemes to keep the Duke interested in his own daughters, Ella Winfield must do what she can to stop the man she is fast becoming attracted to from being steered in the direction of either Lady Patience or Lady Georgiana, all without being discovered by the family who have, one by one, turned their backs upon her.

  1. I could not find a place to review the book “A Beauty for the Scarred Duke ” I will put a review on Amazon but I wanted you to know personally how much I enjoyed this beautiful book. Using letters to Esme to convey Isabella’s thoughts and feelings was wonderful. This was a beautifully written book- I cried and laughed , as well. I could feel her fear and trepidation as she entered the tower, you fall in love with Elliott as she does….and feel her joy as she sees Esme again. I read a lot of historical romances and this is the best one I have read in years. I look forward to reading your other books! Goodluck to you, Joni Barone

  8. Hi there,
    I was wondering if any of your books are in audio format?
    I love listening to books when I’m driving, Cleaning my home, doing laundry, sewing, cooking, and relaxing in the hot tub. You get a lot done! But I love reading when I’m riding my exercise bike, talk about burning calories and not even realizing it. The next thing you know it’s an hour down and you don’t want to stop reading so you keep riding and burning the calories.
    💃🕺

    1. You are right Laura, this is a great way to get things done! Unfortunately my books are not currently on audio form. May I suggest you use the reading assistant option on Kindle? I hope this helps!

  10. I just finished reading three of your books and loved them. However, on my Kindle, it showed that there were some epilogues to each of them. I can’t seem to find them, and the link didn’t work. Any ideas?

  11. Hello wonderfully creative Bridget Barton! You have brought me much joy during our long PA winter this year. I am so thankful I happened upon your books on Amazon. In December of 2018, I portrayed Mrs. Higgins (Mother of Henry Higgins) in My Fair Lady in our local community theater. I enjoyed reading your books hearing the voices in the delightful British accent I had studied. Sadly, I have now purchased the last of your books. Is it possible to read the free gift book you emailed me on my kindle? Also, do you know of any authors whose books are set in this time period, also “clean,” and are very well written like yours? Thanks so very much for your help! Jen

    1. I’m humbled, my dear!

      I’m really grateful for your support and kind feedback!

      I will send you a personal email with instruction on how to get your copy of my free book on your Kindle:)

  12. Hello Bridget, I have just finished reading A Governess for the Brooding Duke. Hamilton and Georgette have endured so much loss . It’s wonderful for him to find love, Georgette to be reestablished in society and the sweet little girls to have family again. It is the first of your books that I have read and thoroughly enjoy your style. At the end of the story it talks of an Extended Epilogue. I have not been able to get the download to finish on my Kindle. I so hope you can help me get a copy of it. I’m most anxious to know if they have one baby or twins and if Georgette has promoted Daisy to being her lady maid.

  13. Dear Mrs. Barton,
    I have enjoyed every one of your books…save for one. I will not detail which one as I do not believe my dislike is attributed to your talent, but rather the nature of the material and how the story unfolded. I did however want to ask if this is the entirety of the list of your books…as I wish to experience every one of them.
    Thanking you in advance,
    Dianne
