NEVER MET A DUKE LIKE YOU
Lady Vesper Lyndhurst is beautiful, clever, and popular. Afforded every luxury as a duke’s daughter, she fills her days with friends, intrigues, and a self-professed knack for matchmaking. She may have sworn off love for herself, but she is rather excellent at arranging it.
Faced with an insolvent estate, the Duke of Greydon has no choice but to return to England in a final attempt to revive his family’s fortunes. He’s been gone for years, happy to have escaped his mother and the petty circles of the ton. To his dismay, not much has changed, including the beautiful and vexing heiress next door.
But when an accident of fate traps the friends-turned-enemies in an attic together, the explosive attraction between them becomes impossible to ignore and even harder to resist. They are total opposites and their lives don’t align in the slightest, but fate, the ultimate matchmaker, appears to have other plans . . .
Today, I’m reviewing Amalie Howard’s next novel in her Taming of the Dukes series. In this second installment (and hopefully not the last) we have feisty Lady Vesper Lyndhurst and the broody Duke of Greydon. These two used to be best of friends as kids, but as adults, they are far from the word.
Romance readers will be ensnared by the first chapter, featuring forced proximity, an almost kiss, and the intro of friends-to-enemies-to-maybe-lovers, and as the story continues to unspool into a story of yearning, banter, and spice. These two must face the very clear chemistry or succumb to the whims of the villainous Dowager Duchess who would keep them apart.
Definitely add this one to your TBR!
Happy Reading ~ Cece
