The nerve of that man! Lady Janice Sherwood has every right to visit the Duke of Halsey; the dowager duchess herself sent an invitation to come and stay for a month. Now to have Luke Callahan—one of the Duke’s grooms for heaven’s sake—stop her carriage and question her is simply the height of impertinence. Even if he is the handsomest servant she has ever seen in her life, Janice has no intention of debating her visit with a man who calls her a strumpet. With the help of the dowager duchess, Janice plots her campaign to win the duke’s heart, but the more time she spends at the duke’s country estate, the more Janice realizes the only man she is really interested in getting a yes from is Luke. The third book in Kramer’s House of Brady series (The Earl is Mine, 2013) offers everything her fans have come to expect, including a sinfully sexy romance between two perfectly matched protagonists, a richly amusing cast of unconventional secondary characters, and a lively plot that doesn’t take itself too seriously. --John Charles

For those of you who don't know the Bradys are a blended family.. The dad, a Marquess of Brady had three boys.. Gregory, Peter and Robert and the mom.. you guessed it.. had three girls, Marcia, Janice and Cynthia *grins* and yes they even have a maid named Alyce.
Say yes to the Duke is Lady Janice's book and yes there are some Marcia, Marcia, Marcia moments. Especially when she finds out that her reputation is questionable because of something Marcia had done.. And everyone knows Marcia has a pristine reputation..
Lady Janice Sherwood (don't forget who created the Brady Bunch.. Kieran had to give a nod to him as well) has been sent to the country by her parents, to visit the duchess, rather the dowager duchess. She was sent in a rather hodge podge fashion that made her question why they were all but tossing her out. Because Janice is insecure she believes for just a moment that they might just want her out of the way. She just didn't know why. Since she is there, Janice is determined to hide in the country for a month and then return home. Only thing is, life never goes according to plan. They had no sooner turned the corner onto the estate when the carriage wheel broke. Sending their driver ahead for help, Janice and her maid waited.. and were accosted by a very ungroomlike groom.. sexy, virile, intelligent.. ok, typical regency romance groom.. lol.. but this man was determined to scare them off. Hard to do with a broken wheel.
Luke Callahan was raised in an orphanage until he was 11 and then forced to flee for his life. Never even aware that the "nun" who cared for him was actually his mother in hiding. Years later he is called to the orphanage for help. It seems he is really the legitimate heir to a dukedom and has nothing to prove it. He knows there could be some form of proof in the family home so he disguises himself as a groom and ventures forth. Once he arrives he realizes all is not right and questionable individuals reside withing. But he is determined.. nothing is going to sway him from his righteous path.. that is until a modest miss arrives and he mistakes her for a soiled dove..
Say Yes is more than a romance it is a metamorphosis.. Both Janice and Luke have to look into themselves and decide if they like what they see.. and decide what to do about what they found. Janice decides that she is more than a daughter and a sister and is willing to live for love. To sacrifice it all for the man she loves. Luke on the other hand has to learn that there is more to him than just a disgruntled heir out for revenge. That love, in all it's forms can transform a man.
As they are evolving both must face the odd goings on in the main house and determine how to deal with them. A Duchess that has "spells" and sometimes thinks she's a queen. A Faux Duke who surrounds himself with sycophants and yet proposes marriage to the first woman who truly despises him.. Blackmail, murder, mystery and great tragedy hides within these walls and it's up to Janice and Luke to discover the secrets and bring them to life!!
A great read about an insecure girl who emerges into the woman she can be!! Thanks Kieran for yet another fun peak at those daring Brady's of the 1800's
I am enjoying this series. It is a fun twist on the Brady Bunch.
I found this book to be well written and a smooth, swift moving plot. I didn't think Luke's character was fleshed out enough, I never felt like I got to "know" him. The story progressed very quickly and Janice became a paradox to me. She is kissing Luke like it is her job, but insisting that she can't be unchaperoned with the Duke? And I was expecting some sort of twist with Mrs. Friday and got nothing, she was exactly what she appeared to be and that surprised me (lol).
Not a bad book, but not a keeper either. It was a nice, light, quick read.
Thank you Ms. Kramer for sharing your talent with us.
