Frosty Franny, the bee lady wants nothing more than a quiet life, possibly as the wife of her barrister friend. Instead she's "sold" for a title by her status seeking mother to William Chambers the impoverished Duke of Bedford. Both Franny and William are likeable characters. They each have their own trengths as well as insecurities. The banter between them is a joy to read and the sexual tension fogged my glasses. The surprising twist in the story kept me guessing until the very end.
Since THE SEDUCTION OF A DUKE is Ms MacMeans sequel to THE EDUCATION OF MRS BRIMLEY I was delighted to be reunited with Nichalos and Emma. I do hope Ms MacMeans plans to tell us Arianne's story.
Francesca Winthrop an American heiress is a shy young woman who is more of a recluse than a socialite and known as FROSTY FRANNY! With a social climbing maman who will do anything to achieve a title....even sell her daughter to a Duke with empty coffers and a run down estate
All Francesca wants is to marry her true love - Randolph Stockwell a lowly barrister who conveniently was sent to Germany.
William Chambers the ninth Duke of Bedford is sacrificing his freedom to marry an heiress sight unseen to save the Dukedom, he hopes at least she'll have all her teeth and be passably pretty. They find that they both exceed each others expectations and after a few mishaps find themselves as husband and wife.
Armed with a naughty courtesan's diary Francesca is ready to seduce the Duke and get with child to return back to America as per the marriage clause.
The attraction is sizzling and William can't keep his hands to himself with his new bride he's convinced she's not a virginal miss but an experienced woman in bed-sport. Now he's wondering if she's in the family way with another mans child.
This was a great story, from the beginning we saw two people who came together in marriage from different backgrounds. Both are looking for acceptance and love, William has trust issues, the heat his wife makes him feel is something he's never experienced and all he wants is to take what is his right as her husband. Lots of twists and secrets to be revealed keep the pages turning. A scorned mistress, blackmail a secret diary and abduction will test the fragile bonds of love for William and Francesca.
Fast paced and highly entertaining with plenty of heat you'll definitely need a fan.
I received a complimentary copy for my honest unbiased opinion.
Ms. MacMeans delivers a story with interesting characters, an intriguing twist, mystery and some steamy moments which the residents and guests of the home thought were ghosts. That point made me laugh out loud. I have to admit that once I started this delightful book, I couldn't put it down. I did not stop until the very satisfactory ending.
While this is second in the trilogy, it can be read as a stand alone. I have not yet read the first book, but will go back and do so now. I look forward
o reading more of Ms. MacMeans' books.
What a story, this is meticulous and is very complicated. The author has done a truly marvelous job of taking all the details and making it into a superb, cohesive, even paced and smooth moving tale. The characters are interesting and believable as is their dialogue. The descriptions of the surroundings, the rooms and the landscape are beautifully revealed. The interactions between the characters are funny, compassionate and loving. I loved this book, the love between Franny and Will was amazing, the way they got there and to trust each other like they did. This is the first time I have read this author but it won't be the last. I was that impressed.
I received this ARC free and voluntarily reviewed it.
