Wish Upon a Duke (Love And Devotion Book 1) Kindle Edition
The duke's bargain never included falling in love...
When Savannah Dawson married the second son of an English earl, she never dreamed she’d have to leave her beloved America, let alone enter the aristocracy at her son’s side. Yet when the earl dies and her husband disappears at sea, Savannah’s life is upended. Bringing her young son to England to meet her shrewish mother-in-law is only the beginning of her trials. The dowager countess has asked a duke to assist in the new earl’s education—a man whose power and position could define the course of Savannah’s life. Proud and stubborn, Savannah refuses to be intimidated. And yet neither can she resist the attraction that catches fire between them.
Reformed rakehell Gabriel Armstrong, Duke of Clevedon, has no room in his life for a woman. Especially an American commoner, the widow of his childhood friend. Beautiful and bold, Savannah nevertheless captivates his imagination. Unlike her English counterparts, she speaks her mind and demands to be heard. Something that does not endear her to the dowager countess, yet which Gabriel finds fascinating. Troubles follow her from America, however. Her husband’s business was in debt, his money invested in illicit trade, and his ship was not the first to be lost at sea.
Rumors abound that Savannah’s husband is still alive. Forces are at work to deny her son his title. And when an interloper arrives demanding repayment or revenge, the life of Savannah’s young son is in jeopardy. Savannah and Gabriel must work together to escape the shadows that could blot out the light of their future.

I enjoyed seeing two different worlds collide into one steamy romance.
Savannah is an American who travels to England after she loses her husband in order for her young son to claim his title. What she doesn't expect is to find a mother-in-law who is less than happy to see her or a handsome Duke ready to help raise her son as a proper Earl.
Gabriel our handsome Duke doesn't have time for love or a woman in his life. After heartbreak years before he has sworn off love. But as he gets to know Savannah and her young son he finds himself falling for her. When their lives are threatened Gabriel not only realizes how much he loves them but is fearful he could lose them.
this book was a fun one. I enjoyed our hero and heroine. I liked that Savannah was a strong outspoken woman and that Gabriel was a man who could handle that. I also enjoyed the sparring between Savannah and her mother-in-law.
Overall a fun read. I enjoyed it while chilling by the pool at Universal Studios in between my Travel Agent training. I highly recommend this as a quick summer read.

The story about the missing ships was never fully developed till the rush at the end. There was plenty opportunity to lead into the Mortimer angle much earlier.
Would probably not continue with this Author for now.
