My least favorite was Waiting for a Duke Like You by Shana Galen. I love regency romances, but I have a personal quirk against royalty from 'fake' European countries so this is all on me. I did like the Duke in the story, but the plot seemed contrived. It was well-written though.
Miranda Neville’s story was a delight. The older Duke marrying a too young lady and the couple becoming estranged is a plot line that I enjoy. She matures and he unbends for a satisfying romantic story.
Grace Burrowes is one of my favorite authors so I very much enjoyed her story of the Duke and his romance with his governess.
Carolyn Jewel is another favorite. I wanted the story to be a little longer and fleshed out more, but it was a very enjoyable read.
My favorite of the stories was written by Miranda Neville and followed by Carolyn Jewell. Were there parts of the story I didn't care for in this bundle, yes. But also, very enjoyable to see how the house party caused so much upheaval in some of their lives.
My least favorite was by Shana Galen. I didn't care for the h at all. She didn't like the H because he was prettier than her - OH PLEASE!! After that announcement, I didn't care what happened to her.
I did enjoy the story by Grace Burrows. The h was endearing and at times I wanted to knock sense into the H head because he couldn't see the forest through the trees.
Yes, there is lovemaking - 3 I would consider mild, the other story not vulgar, just more.
I am not going into the premise of the stories, as the author's and others have explained in detail. If you are not familiar with these author's, this is a great way to get a taste of their writing.
We get HEA, no cliffhanger's, some romance, interesting character's, some stories have some twists and surprises. In the end, worth your time and money. (ljb)
The first, MAY I HAVE THIS DUKE, by Grace Burrowes, is a charming and witty tale of the stuffy Hammersley, Duke of Hardcastle, and his nephew’s smart and witty governess, Miss Ellen MacHugh. It’s filled with wonderful dialogue, with perfect English dry wit, and a sweet and sexy romance. I really love Ms. Burrowes writing voice!
WAITING FOR A DUKE LIKE YOU, by Shana Galen, shines with adventure. Cauley, Duke of Wyndover, avoiding the fawning misses at a house party, trips over a young woman asleep under a bridge. Princess Vivienne is the last of the royal family of Glynaven. She’s seeking asylum in England, if she can avoid the assassins trailing her long enough to reach safety. I love a hero story, with a brave duke willing to sacrifice all to protect a woman in danger. And there’s plenty of danger here, blended with a lovely romance.
DUCHESS OF SCANDAL, by Miranda Neville, is an estranged marriage story. The Duke of Linton and his duchess, Althea, have politely avoided each other for five years. But when they come together at his Dukeries’ estate by accident, they find the chemistry is still hot. The excellent conflict in this reuniting husband and wife plot is perfectly developed, with a charming resolution.
AN UNSUITABLE DUCHESS, by Carolyn Jewel is the story of the Duke of Stoke Taversault and the widowed Georgina Lark. Stoke is stoic and grumpy, and focused on the many responsibilities that come with his title. No woman could ever love him, for he manages to strike fear into others by simply striding into a room. But Georgina is not afraid of him, and recognizes the man within. These two stumble over each other before owning their attraction, and it's very well-done.
Each of these stories has its own charm, lovely characters and a sweet romance. Intertwined in them is the continuity of the spring celebration at the Dukeries, with house parties, picnics, scavenger hunts, a boating race, and balls. This is one of those that I was sorry to finish. They were so much fun, they left me wanting more. Enjoy!
