One of Daphne Wade's guilty pleasures is to watch the Duke of Tremore as he works, shirtless, on the excavation site of his ducal estate. Anthony Courtland is by far the most exciting and handsome man she has ever known, and she dreams of one day being able to speak with him without getting tongue tied.
Anthony, meanwhile, only sees Daphne as a hard worker on his excavation team. He considers her a plain young lady and says so in a careless remark to a friend, unaware that Daphne is outside the library door, her heart shattering to pieces. So Daphne decides she will not be so silly any longer. She begins to be tutored in the social graces, forcing Anthony to see the beauty who has been right in front of his eyes.
Wonderful Story !!!!!
If you love historical romances like I do you'll love this. The characters are well developed and you feel like a part of their lives- even the ancillary characters are engaging! The romance is juicy and the sex scenes are on point- realistic with no cheese. The first time the protagonists kiss was so engaging! I've read good and bad historical romances and this is one of the good ones. Delishhhhh!!
Great love story. The characters were well developed and their chemistry was lovely.
