Although we are currently open to in-store shopping, we are limiting the number of customers allowed at one time to six and will be enforcing the minimum 6 foot social distancing recommendations of the CDC. All children must be accompanied by an adult and must hold the adult's hand at all times while in the store. In accordance with state law, we will be masked. Out of consideration for staff and your fellow book lovers, we request that you, too, choose to wear a mask when in the store. We will offer a hand sanitizing station at the front door and encourage you to take advantage of it.
Because we are limiting customers to six in the store at any one time, you may call us to schedule an appointment at 503-472-7786. This will guarantee you entry at the time you specify. If you drop by without an appointment and there are already six customers in the store, you will be asked to wait to come in until someone leaves.
We are still taking orders through the website and over the phone and curbside pick up and home delivery within McMinnville (with $25 minimum purchase) are still available. We are also continuing to offer $2 per item Media Mail shipping.

Self-made man Aidan Iverson has seen more closed doors in his thirty years than he’s ever cared to count. As a member of the elite Duke’s Den, he has all the money he could possibly need but the one thing he can’t purchase is true power. If roguish Aidan can’t buy his way into society’s hallowed halls, he’ll resort to a more extreme measure: marriage.
Brought up to be a proper lady, the only thing Diana Ashby desires is to be left alone to the creation of her own devices. But when her dreams are crushed, she must find another way to secure the future of her invention. Knowing his desire to enter her world, Diana strikes a deal to arrange Aidan’s marriage to the perfect lady—as long as that lady isn’t her. She doesn’t need any distractions from her work, particularly of the sinfully handsome variety.
As Diana and Aidan set out to find him an aristocratic match, neither are prepared for the passion that ignites between them or the love they can’t ignore.
In the Duke’s Den, can happiness ever be a winning prospect?
