Bedding Lord Ned

The Duchess of Love

Sally MacKenzie wrote Bedding Lord Ned, the first book in The Duchess of Love series, as a great intro into the main characters and who will be the eventual lovers in the upcoming books. Bedding Lord Ned is a very sweet story about Eleanor who has loved Ned since they were children, with him none the wiser.

The Duchess of Love is the proprietor of a weekend getaway at her home where she plays matchmaker with the eligible men and women. There seemed to be more action between Lady Love and her husband, than between the main characters of the story. If there were more intimate scenes between Ned and Eleanor then I would say the story would benefit from it. Otherwise, readers have to wait a long while before Ned can see clearly.

Overall, the story was a very cute and enjoyable read. There didn't seem to be anything extremely exciting about the story but I am still interested in finding out what happens with the other characters that were introduced.

Pleasure Is On Her Dance Card

Determined to find a husband, Miss Eleanor "Nell" Bowman attends a ball put on by the Duchess of Greycliffe, fondly referred to as the Duchess of Love.

For it's the duchess's dashing son Ned, Lord Edward, who long ago captured Nell's heart--and roused her desire. All it takes is a pair of conveniently misplaced silky red bloomers to set the handsome widower's gaze on this unusual girl who is clearly more than meets the eye…

After more than a year of mourning, Ned longs to finally start anew. At first glance, the birthday ball his mother has thrown in his honor is decidedly lacking in suitable mistresses. But he senses something unexpectedly alluring beneath the veil of Nell's plain exterior--something she's anxious to reveal, and the lonely Lord is incapable of denying…
