Say Yes to the Duke is a little bit confusing but also fun to read. The story line is a little different from the usual lost heir type of story and I found it to be refreshing. The characters are well developed and I liked that although Luke Callahan sometimes seemed like he was a bit deceptive, he was at heart a hero. The Duke on the other hand was an obvious villain from the start and stayed true to character. Janice Sherwood made for an interesting heroine and I enjoyed watching her unravel the threads of the story to figure out the truth about Luke and ultimately decide her own fate.
Janice Sherwood wants to marry for love but she’s one of several sisters and she is neither the beauty nor the charming one. She’s the middle sister and as such she only has a few months before her younger sister debuts forcing Janice to be on the shelf permanently. Her parents have sent her off to the country to see if she can secure the affections of a duke. From the start things are obviously not what they seem. While Janice is trying to sort her own life out she soon finds she is falling in love with a groom, which is totally inappropriate and completely unstoppable. If the two of them are going to be together they will have to fight for each other and find a way to uncover the truth about the current Duke of Halsey.
Janice Sherwood wants to marry for love, but she’s failed to make a match after two Seasons. Her parents, the Marquess and Marchioness of Brady, arrange to send her to the Duke of Halsey’s country estate as a short-term guest of his grandmother, the dowager, in hopes that she might win the duke’s affections. What they never could have imagined is that Janice would fall for the ruggedly handsome servant Luke, who lives in the stables and carries an air of mystery and temptation.
When Luke Callahan learns that he is the legitimate heir to a dukedom, he will stop at nothing to claim what is his. But first, he must begin a game of disguise to secure his rightful inheritance. Janice isn’t part of his plan. But by engaging her in this dance of deception, might he lose her forever?
