The Duke of Longley was a rake and should be left well enough alone. At least that is what Lady Lily Ducat's mother continually said. As far as Lily could tell, she was correct. His Grace had a devilish air about him and a brooding silence that no debutante should attempt to tame and certainly not grow an affection for. He was too much man and beyond redemption. Except once they are tossed together after a winter storm, she is dangerously close to declaring her love because in the dark of night, he was all Lily could see.
Maximillian Masters learned long ago to stay far away from dewy eyed maidens. He was too cynical, too experienced, and much too adverse to marriage for such a lady. Which is why he must never see the lovely Lily again no matter what some ridiculous gypsy predicted. Except, when he is stranded and at the mercy of winter, Lily is there and the more he sees her, the harder it is to deny temptation.
Quick & Fun
Story was well paced and characters well thought out. Did enjoy it and look forward to reading the about the heroine’s sisters and the hero’s friends.
Don’t tell a duke . . .
Could have used more interaction between H&H. But sisters made the story fun.
What A Great Way To Start A New Series!!!
Tammy Andresen writes the most charming and wonderful stories! Don't Tell a Duke You Love Him is book 1 in the How to Reform a Rake series. You can help but fall in love with her characters even a cold hearted duke. Tammy can take to you far away places and times and her writing is so easy to follow that I found that I could just lose myself in her story. This story has a gypsy, rogues, peer pressure, destiny, a snow storm, a scandal, a broken engagement, guilt, a heartless mother, and love at first sight. Tammy Andresen never disappoints me in her books and I highly recommend this book!
