You can’t beat The Duke's Disaster by Grace Burrowes. I fell head-over-heels-in-love with this book, the characters, the plot, etc. The hero of the story, Noah Winters, helped make this book one splendid romance! When I first started reading this book I was little concerned about the plot and so I moved forward into the story only to uncover that this book was something entirely different than what I was expecting. It was different in the way that both the hero and the heroine had to really push towards making their love one of happily-ever-after endings.
Five years ago my book choices were quite different than my choices today, and I probably wouldn’t have given this story a second glance. I never use to like the idea of the hero and the heroine working equally to have a relationship turn into love, but now it is my favorite type of romance. I think this is something that Grace Burrowes does so well in her books and more authors are certainly beginning to follow her lead.
If you’re a reader that might by shy about romance, don't give it another thought. The Duke's Disaster must be on your list of books to read this year! It's the perfect read of the season. I’ll be honest and say that I think it’s one of the best romances for years to come!
Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he's infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea's mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?
As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn't expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?
