On his way to negotiate with her, he stops at a masquerade, where an encounter with a masked lady changes everything he thought he knew about desire…

Another hit by Grace Callaway
Grace Callaway is one of my favorite authors. She has given readers yet another fantastic addition to the Game of Dukes series. Book 4 in the series, The Duke Redemption tells the story of Lady Beatrice Wodehouse and Wickham Murray. This novel is a retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast story, which romance novels are known for. In this instance however it is the heroine Bea, who is the scarred recluse. The novel is also somewhat of an enemies to lovers tale.
l have come to trust how Ms. Callaway is able to make the relationships between the heroine and hero realistic. The heroine and hero complimented each other. The reader doesn’t feel as if their feelings were rushed, instead their love develops naturally. Wickham was a worthy hero and having read the other books in the series I admired how Ms. Callaway has shown the development of his character. We have seen Wick go from being a ne'er-do-well to a honorable man. In the novel Bea has something that Wickham needs if his next business deal is to succeed. To give it up however will affect not only her but others. The theme of the things we hold onto whether physical or emotional is explored in this novel. Wick was able to help Bea discover the beauty that she was all along.
Ms. Calloway’s love scenes are hot!!! I know I blushed a few times. She is the mistress of creating steamy love scenes which enhance the novel without a hint of tawdriness. As usual in the mystery component is important. I have always appreciated how this author is able to develop the mystery aspect of her novels without it overshadowing the romance. This book was no different as the mystery complimented the romance.
The Duke Redemption was one novel that ticked off aspects I love 1. romance, 2. mystery and 3. hot love scenes. Grace Callaway has another hit on her hands.
Please note it isn’t necessary to read the preceding books in the series to understand and enjoy The Duke Redemption. I was asked to give an honest review for an ARC of this novel.
