Miss Chloe Fong has plans for her life, lists for her days, and absolutely no time for nonsense. Three years ago, she told her childhood sweetheart that he could talk to her once he planned to be serious. He disappeared that very night.
Except now he’s back. Jeremy Wentworth, the Duke of Lansing, has returned to the tiny village he once visited with the hope of wooing Chloe. In his defense, it took him years of attempting to be serious to realize that the endeavor was incompatible with his personality.
All he has to do is convince Chloe to make room for a mischievous trickster in her life, then disclose that in all the years they’ve known each other, he’s failed to mention his real name, his title… and the minor fact that he owns her entire village.
Only one thing can go wrong: Everything.

Simply A Joy to read
I received an ARC of this book to read through a review crew. All opinions are my own. The Duke Who Didn’t by Courtney Milan was simply a joy to read. Chloe Fong and her father live in the village of Wedgeford, home to the Wedgeford Trials, an annual festival that attracts people from all over England each year. Jeremy Wentworth, Duke of Lansing, attended the trials each year until three years ago when he asked Chloe to marry him, and she sent him away to become more serious. He’s returned this year, having concluded that although he is serious about Chloe, he is just not a serious person in general. Chloe never expected Jeremy would leave for so long, and now that he’s back, she not sure she can trust her heart to him because what if he leaves again? Jeremy decides to show Chloe that she is the one for him by having her make a list of what he’s looking for in a bride because Chloe is all about her lists. With Jeremy as the sunshine one and Chloe as the grumpy one, this friends to lovers story is lighthearted and joyful, perfect reading for this annus horribilis, and I highly recommend it.
