Once upon a time…
A duke fell in love
Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.
With a lady
Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.
And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be, she pretends.
In a tower.
But Edie’s inability to hide her feelings makes pretending impossible, and when their marriage implodes, she retreats to a tower—locking Gowan out.
Now Gowan faces his greatest challenge. Neither commands nor reason work with his spirited young bride. How can he convince her to give him the keys to the tower…
When she already has the keys to his heart?

Couldn't put it down!!
Excellent!! I laughed. I cried. I love this book!
Great characters, even the butler...
My first book by Eloisa and I'm officially a fan. The characters are witty and the conversations were fun. It dragged a little bit in the end and the I think it was because she was trying to write in the title. All the same. A great read.
This story has a lot of potential but I was left very unsatisfied. It starts strong, lags incredibly in the middle and has a lackluster finish. Though the author named the book "Once Upon a Tower" in my opinion, it should've been given another title because the tower storyline is important but not important enough to name the book after it...The one positive thing about this story is that the author really develops the characters' personalities and the reader understands their relationship well.
