Defying the Duke

Bookish and spirited, Lady Lettie Brookfield is firmly on the shelf.  The last thing she wants, however, is to spend the rest of her days as an unmarried sister, dependent upon her family's charity. Accepting she won't have a love match, she finds herself coming around to the idea of marrying the only suitor she's ever had..that is until she's suddenly reunited with her brother's former best friend, the brooding, formally charming, Anthony, Duke of Granville. 

Years earlier, in an unselfish act intended to save his friend, Anthony committed an unforgivable betrayal; one that severed his friendship. Now he's a duke and must fulfill his obligations. The last woman he has any right to long for is his former best friend's younger sister, Lettie. 

All grown-up Lettie is passionate, quick-witted, and desirable, and it isn't long before Anthony falls for her, the very last woman he should consider marrying. Will past betrayals keep them apart? Or is there a path to a new beginning with Anthony and the only woman he truly loves?

Friends to Lovers

This book sees the fabulous Christi Caldwell return to her brilliant Heart of a Duke series, although reading previous titles is not necessary the reader will want to after finishing this book. Our heroine is Lettie, unmarried spinsterish sister to Rhys the former best friend of our hero Anthony. Lettie is tired of attending London season after season, she reluctantly agrees to consider Lord Exmoor at her mothers urging. He being the only one who considers her marriage worthy. The last thing see wants is to be dependent on her families kindness but she also doesn’t want to lose her voice and independence which is what she fears will happen when she marries Exmoor. Years ago Anthony betrayed his best friend and since then he has stayed away from events in London however his sister is on her first season and he must marry to continue the ducal line. Our couple meet and renew their friendship from years ago. Lettie soon discovers that Anthony is everything she wants in a husband. Although he has similar feelings he knows his past prevents him from pursuing Lettie. Not one to let things lie Lettie is determined to resolve things and get her man. Ultimately our couple find happiness and their HEA. I loved this book, as a series fan it was good to revisit previous characters and also it was fabulous to have Anthony redeemed and find love. Christi delivers a wonderful story as usual and I can’t recommend this book enough wether you are a fan or new to her you will enjoy this story.

I received and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book and this is my honest opinions and review.
