“A master storyteller.”—Affaire de Coeur
Nearing thirty, the Duke of Rathburne is finally ready to make amends for the wager that caused him and his best friends such scandal—but taking on a ward who needs a husband is a feat he’s not sure he can manage. The last he saw of Miss Marlena Fast, she was a spirited little ruffian, not the sort of bride most bachelors on the marriage mart sought. But one glance at the lovely lady she has become is enough to convince him otherwise…
Orphaned young and shuffled from family to family, Marlena counts on her fierce independence and quick wits to keep herself content. Being the responsibility of a notoriously wicked duke who upended so many lives is an unexpected challenge when she realizes he arouses her decidedly feminine desires. Marlena must be careful. She has her own scandalous secret to protect. If he finds out, will it shatter her chances of a happily-ever-after with the notorious rake?
It's All About the Duke is the next Regency romance in The Rakes of St. James series from Amelia Grey.
Enchanting & Enticing!
The Rakes Of St. James series has been utterly delightful and entertaining to read. Amelia Grey truly knows how to transports her reader to another time and place with her detailed descriptive narrative. I felt as if I was surrounded by the sights, sounds, and characters of this era. But what truly was enchanting for me was her description of the emotions and feelings of new love. I felt that I was falling in love along with them.
I have Loved, Miss Honora Truth’s and Wisdom and Warnings about Rakes, Scoundrels, Rogues and Libertines Scandal sheet, and all of the wonderful quotes, through this series, and was so excited to read about the woman behind this publication Marlena Fast. This character did not disappoint and gave Rath a rather hard time even though she was falling for him.
This story was Enchanting! I struggled to put it down just because I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. This love story was filled with angst, Love, and laughter. I loved their story and how they were both trying to fight their feelings for the other. So many great scenes in this story, full of sizzling chemistry, smart, witty banter, and breathless, sensual, intrigue. Also thoroughly enjoyed getting to see the previous characters from the past Stories in this series. I would highly recommend this series to everyone. LOVED IT!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Loved the story
I received a copy of this book thru Netgalley. This is the third book in the trilogy The Rakes of St. James and it is as enjoyable as the other two. It is very well written, but still needs proofing which is to be expected in this advance read copy. Marlena comes under Rath’s control as being her guardian. Events happen and there is a HEA to this book. There is a lot that happens in the book and it is worth reading. I am sure when the final copy is available all of the grammatical issues will be resolved, that being said, they do not take away from the story. It is a clean romance that is appropriate for most age groups.
