My Favorite Duke (The Duke Hunters Club Book 2) Kindle Edition
Lady Juliet is happy. Veryhappy. After all, she's engaged, even if she rarely sees her betrothed. So what if her betrothed keeps postponing their wedding? Or that there are wicked rumors about him? Still, when the Duke of Sherwood doesn't appear at a ball as intended, there's only one thing she can do: discover the truth herself.
Lucas, the Duke of Ainsworth, is exceedingly dull.
At least, that's what he desires everyone to believe. He makes certain to enter into conversations with the ton about obscure plants and to quote Latin tomes while fiddling with his spectacles. By night, Lucas is involved in a different task: bringing down criminals.
No criminal is as elusive as the person spreading counterfeit coin through the Lake District, and Lucas is determined to discover the source. When he sees someone sneak onto the man's estate in the Lake District, he expects to discover one of the man's accomplices. Instead, he is shocked to discover Lady Juliet. Lucas vows to help her, no matter how distracting her alluring presence is.

Lucas, the Duke of Ainsworth, is also a handsome man who presents himself as a very dull character while, in reality, he tracks down dangerous criminals for the Crown. So when his target, the Duke of Sherwood, suspected of being behind a counterfeit money scheme, seems to be making his move, Lucas and his partner, Sebastian, clothe themselves as highwaymen and pull over the suspected coach. But to their surprise, they find Lady Juliet and her cousin, Genevieve, who are trying to find their target as well! Despite himself, he is attracted to the lady. Will there be a future somewhere along the way for the two of them as they keep running into each other? Will Juliet realize that what she wants now is real and not the lie she had wasted her time on?
This was a very good story and I chuckled through and thoroughly enjoyed. Grab your copy and see how everything comes together in the end.
Interesting, well developed characters
Detailed descriptions of scenery but not so lengthy as to be boring
Some witty dialogue.
(And there are some spoiler alerts here so caveat emptor.)
A good editor was seriously lacking. One minute Juliet is riding a horse, and the next she’s in a carriage. One paragraph describes the wedding guests and two paragraphs later they are described again. One page Juliet sees the two Dukes fighting, and the next page has one Duke is sneaking up behind the other with a chair. There are more such examples, but all are equally annoying. French letters were very good prophylactics. How did Honoria get pregnant?
Plot lines are thrown out and left dangling. ( A good editor would help with that too.) E.G. What happened with the papers Juliet stole from the Duke? (Not to mention how she got them in the 1st place.) And it took Lucas about 8 hours to get over the fact that he lost both the first love of his life AND apparently his child.
And there were other little annoying things as well. Have you ever tried to make love in a row boat — let alone sleep all night in the bottom of one? No? Not a surprise there. I can’t think it would be ideal in swim suits, let alone in period clothes. And I don’t think they ate “steak” in those days either.

The reader never gets to know how Juliet (sometimes she is Julia) got engaged to the duke, why she loves him although she never sees him. She has no maid of her own (her father is a wealthy earl), she is able to slip away from a ball to galllivant around the countryside to seek for said duke assuming he got lost on the way to the ball, just ridiculous behaviour. Next day she walks around the rolling hills of the lake-district for miles from one castle to the next unaccompanied, did you ever read that in a Regency novel?
Writing and editing are bad.
