I am a big fan of box sets like this. They give me a chance to read books by other authors who I may not yet had the chance to do so. Box sets are great for people that want a quick read for night time or when we are having to wait for an appointment. Some of the books had been released on their own standing which is always nice too but I appreciate a box set anytime. These all can be standalone books and theme is each male character is a Duke.

"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
Taming a Duke's Wild Rose tells of a romance from the mid 1800’s. Both main characters grow throughout the storyline. I felt the heartbreak they suffered with their trust issues – the hero, a recluse who is suffering emotionally from physical scars and doubting anyone could love him and the heroine who has fallen for dishonorable men in the past and fears she has chosen the wrong man again. Well-written and intriguing with developed characters. Strong characters make a good story and this one has them including the damsel in distress who doesn’t back down when faced with danger (she can pick locks after all!). Thoroughly enjoyed it. Has drama, action, humor, and great chemistry between the characters. Another winner from Tammy Andresen.
