4.0 out of 5 stars Nash sharpened her claws in the previous titles. March 19, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rory Lennox, the Duke of Abshire, is new to his title, which was bestowed upon him for services rendered to the Crown. As the story opens, Rory is caught in bed with his archenemy's still-innocent sister, Miss Verity Fitzroy, the morning after the (soon to be well known) bachelor party. Verity refuses to wed Rory, preferring to be sent away until things blow over. But once settled in Derbyshire, Verity becomes so bored that she actually agrees to educate the children in the village while their teacher is away for a fortnight or so. When Rory appears, Verity knows it is his intension to persuade her into accepting his hand in marriage. While Verity has always been fascinated by Rory, she has too much pride to wed a man against his will. In the end, she agrees to an engagement, which she insists that she will break off at the end of the season, even if it renders her unmarriageable. (Not that it matters, as she never intends to ever wed.)

Meanwhile, a London newspaper begins to publish excerpts from a mysterious diary, detailing the most shameful exploits of the most scandalous bachelor party (which was also attended by the Prince Regent.) These stories could easily incite the country to riot, as they come so soon after the French Revolution. Rumor is that Rory recorded his friends' misdeeds, but Verity knows he is innocent. Should the truth be revealed, it could destroy any hope of happiness for Verity. But when a series of mysterious accidents takes place, Rory realizes he must face down his greatest fears not only to save Verity, but to win her hand and her heart.

**** FOUR STARS! Author Sophia Nash sharpened her claws on certain gentlemen during the previous titles of this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Duke Diaries February 26, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Rory Lennox, first Duke of Abshire, wakes up holding a warm hand he does not realize his entire life is about to change as the hand he is holding is the sister of his former best friend...and he has no clue how he got into her bed. It doesn't help matters that her brother is glaring at them and demanding a marriage and then satisfaction in the field. Verity Fitzroy wakes up to mass confusion and refuses to marry Rory. She knows nothing happened and she will not marry someone who does not love her, even if it is her childhood crush. Rory has a strong sense of duty and sets about to prove to Verity that they must marry and in the process, finds himself losing his heart. Will he be able to convince her of his true feelings?

While this is book three in this series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. It was such a fun, flirty, sexy romp and I really enjoyed it. I really liked Verity as she is outspoken, honest, practical and amusing with a stubborn streak. She thinks Rory is all wit and charm but she knows underneath that facade he is so much more. The banter between them was a delight to read and watching them both fall truly in love with each other was sweet. When Verity realizes her private diaries are being published in the local newspaper and they hold all her thoughts on the wild bachelor party, she worries what Rory will think when he finds out who the real author is. I thought the resolution to this area was very sweet and showed the true nature of Rory to the best advantage. Rory and Verity both have issues in their past that they must overcome to move forward and they strive to do so. Sophia Nash also wove in some future characters with just enough tidbits to have me anxious for them now! Recommended for fans of fun, sexy romances who like to laugh and sigh with happiness

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great March 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Sophia Nash's Widows Club series so I'm disappointed I can't say the same about this new series. The first two books were fine but I didn't connect with this one at all. There was so much mystery over Verity's secrets it completely overshadowed any romance in the story, I couldn't understand why they even liked each other.

There are so many references to the other Duke's stories and mishaps it almost felt as if this was a filler book in the series. I was more interested in the rest of the Royal Entourage and what Amelia's story would be. It did pick up in the end but it took so long to get there, I didn't even care about the happy ending.

I do like the way Sophia Nash writes, though, so I'm going to read the next one, I just hope it's better!

2.0 out of 5 stars Far from romantic March 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't read any of the author's previous books and thought I'd take a chance on this one even though I was less than optimistic. Sadly more than 50% of the way through the book I had yet to find much evidence of romance. The h had loved the H for years but he was completely unaware of her and only trying to 'court' her to avoid a scandal. I've never been a fan of books where the h loves the H and he isn't aware of the fact and more pertinently could care even less. Where is the romance in this kind of plot? Worse still is the fact that the H had been madly in love with the h's brother's late fiancee years ago and kept on dreaming of her. What chance did a plain, homely and forgettable h stand? We constantly hear of how beautiful the H's first love had been and it didn't sit well with me especially since the h is plain.

There were parts of the book that I really didn't like and again detracted from the romance. I'm not going to bother with a spoiler because if you're a fan you'll continue with the series anyway. I'm not sure I'll read another book by this author.
