Her Favorite Duke by Jess Michaels

Her Favorite Duke
by Jess Michaels

Reviewed by Brittany Franks

Available here:
Her Favorite Duke (The 1797 Club Book 2)

Meg's brother arranged an engagement to one of his best friend's when Meg was just a teenager, but Meg has been in love with her brother's other best friend, Simon, for years. Simon has also been hiding his love for Meg for all those years. When circumstances arise pushing Simon and Meg together they have to fight through many hurdles, including Simon himself to find their happiness. I throughly enjoyed this historical romance. Even with the turmoil surrounding them it was still a truly sweet love story. While it was a bit predictable, it didn't take away from from the fun of reading their story. If you love a classic regency romance I highly recommend reading this one!

A long-ago family feud stands in the way of these two would-be lovers. Will they be stubborn and creative enough to work around the desires of their families and carve out a life together? 

This book, while part of a series, is definitely enjoyable as a stand-alone and is touching, sweet, and darkly funny.

The Forbidden Duke

The Forbidden Duke
Darcy Burke
$2.99 eBook/ $6.99 PB

It's rare for me to find a Regency romance that I enjoyed as much as this one. Don't let the cover fool you... it's not all froth and steam. I loved this tale of a fallen spinster and the rogue who was friends with the rake who stole a kiss 10 years ago from her! Yes, a kiss was enough to ruin a young lady for life, and now she must find a way to pull herself up from her past. Please enjoy an excerpt from the title HERE. All in all, this is a sweet tale of redemption and love, without a great deal of drama or angst.

Wedding Night with the Earl

Wedding Night with the Earl
Amelia Grey
St Martin's Press
$7.99 eBook/PB

This book is, in a word, scrumptious! Part of the series 'The Heirs Club of Scoundrels' (but perfect as a standalone!) , this enchanting story introduces us to Adam Greyhawke, a carousing, gambling cad and Katherine Wright, a sweet, willful, very wealthy young lady. I beg the forgiveness of you, my readers, but to use a very overused expression, mayhem ensues! 

Adam has lost his wife and child in childbirth, he has an orphan unceremoniously dumped in his lap as his new heir, his two best friends have lovely wives who happen to be increasing, and society dictates, of course, that a single man in possession of any sort of money must be in want of a wife! He visits London to attend to the matter of this scrawny scamp of an heir he suddenly possesses, and in the course of attending a dinner party meets Katherine, the heroine of our story. He pesters her to dance, being enchanted by her words and her face, but is turned down flat. Joke's on him, as she walks away, she reveals the cane she had carefully concealed in the folds of her gown.

This story is both very touching (the orphaned Dixon and the handicapped Katherine provide a 1-2 punch to the gut), sexy (great wordplay between Adam and Katherine), and even has a bit of a Beauty and the Beast thrill to it. Nothing too unexpected occurs, it's simply a delightful love story.
