How to Tame Your Duke

Regency romance novels are a weakness of mine, and this one was a real treat to discover. I found it very easy to get into, as well as sink deep into and not come out of. The characters are delightful and still very deep and well rounded, having many facets to them to make them utterly enchanting. The story takes readers on a very interesting journey, and one that is not often attempted (a woman masquerading as a man, even to save her life). The novel is one that has earned a special place on my shelves, and I have no doubt both new readers and loyal followers will love it as much as I did.

Princess Emilie and her sisters are in deep trouble. A murderer is on the loose as hot on their trail. With their family dead and left behind in Germany, they are forced to flee in the dark of night to England and their very creative uncle, the Duke of Olympia with only a few trusted servants. And in the dark of night, an ingenious plan is hatched to safeguard the girls’ identity while the hunt for the murderers is on. The girls will be hidden in plain sight: with members of the aristocracy, as men! Emilie, as a gentleman tutor, was sent to the Duke of Ashland, a man who is somewhat of a recluse but who is very honorable. Time moves on, and Emilie and the Duke find themselves in a somewhat compromised position. As he tries to reconcile himself with what he knows about his son’s tutor and his new lover, Emilie is trying to hide her identity from him. And in the meantime, a killer is trying valiantly to hunt down all three girls. Can the girls be saved? Can Emilie save the Duke and her heart? This is a beautiful romantic delicacy.
