Ten years ago Miss Eleanor Lockhart was ruined by one kiss in a garden. The Untouchable rake Lord Haywood refuse to marry her. As she was not in the hierarchy of which he seek nor did she have a diary. Lord Haywood ran in a circle of young rakes who thought they could do anything and get away with anything. The Leader of the group was Titus St. John 5th Duke of Kendal.
Kendal learned from his terrible mistakes as a young, after realizing the ruined and hurt he had brought upon Eleanor/Nora. She was banished by the Ton and sent back home to live with her fathe in the country. Now ten years have passed and Nora's father has announced he can no longer keep her. That he has no more money at all. He lost it all in a bad investment. Nora must fiend for herself.
After being employed by Lady Satterfield as a Lady's Companion Nora meets The Duke of Kendal. He is Lady Satterfield loving step son. At the time of her ruined he was the Marquis of Ravenglass so she doesn't recognize that he played a part of her downfall.
Titus know immediately who Nora is and what part he played in her downfall. Titus is so sorry and does all he can to put Nora's life to rights. Titus has removed himself from his friends and the Ton only attending his duties in the House of Lords and his Beloved Step Mothers annual Opening of the Season Ball.
Ash Titus and Nora begin to build a relationship. Titus's heart begins to thaw he also beings to fall in love with Nora and Nora with him.
I loved both Titus and Nora they are well written loveable characters. The story is believable for the era. I enjoyed all the Characters Lady Satterfield and Lady Dunn. This is a well developed storyline with just enough back story to give it credence. The building romance between Titus and Nora was so romantic and lovely. I kept routing for them to get together. There is only one sex scene and it was written tastefully. I do like a bit more sexual heat to my stories. But I didn't miss it the story was just that good. I am off to read bk2 in the Untouchable series Duke of Daring!! I hope it is as good.
I Highly Recommend The Forbidden Duke!!
Nine years later, when she must find a way to support herself, she gets a job as a companion to Lady Satterfield, who coincidently has a stepson, Titus, the Duke of Kendal. Unbeknownst to Nora, the duke was intrumental in her ruination nine years ago. After what happened to her, Titus felt remorse and turned over a new leaf, distancing himself from his former "rake" friends, and frivolous society. After meeting at Lady Satterfield's, they fall in love, but Titus is afraid that when Nora finds out the role he played in her ruination, she won't have anything to do with him.
These characters had gone through a lot of growing up, heartache, and internal conflict. In spite of how Nora had been treated, she was a sweet, loving woman, and Titus needs her to open himself up to love and forgiveness. Lady Satterfield is Nora's guardian angel, giving Nora her second chance at love.
Titus likes to keep to himself and not engage with the ton of London. However, after meeting his step-mother's companion he can't seem to stay away this season after his step-mother decides to sponsor her for the season.
I loved Nora and how real she is. She didn't let people treat her badly and was done with the expectations of being the perfect wife to be for the season looking for a husband. Titus, well he's determined to right his past mistakes that effected Nora and has never left his mind. The story is perfectly steamy and filled with romance. I felt that Nora is too quick to forgive when I was expecting a bit more tension. If you enjoy a historical romance that will keep you engrossed until the last page I recommend The Forbidden Duke.
The building love that Titus feels is true to the character and these two people were balms for each other's problems. The writer made this enjoyable and the story builds to a crescendo and you want to yell HOORAY when they both give in and "allow" themselves to love !
The step-parents are just wonderful characters and it's a nice break from rigid stiff characters in other novels. This is a book to enjoy--to escape your cares, to go to a place in time where good things happen to good people! The ending is just so perfect and makes you feel warm.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good plots without tons of sexual details you do not want to know! This has characters and happenings that are full of the color of the period!
