My Duke's Desire
Wicked Lords of London Book 4
Lady Violette knew two things for certain. She must make an advantageous match to save her family and the lord who agreed would be less than desirable. It didn’t matter that she wished to sail off on a great adventure. It wasn’t her choice to make.
His Grace, The Duke of Waverly, had no intention marrying, no matter what his mother expected. That was one of the few advantages of being a duke and he’d sailed back from Barbados to inform her. On his journey home, however, a beautifully proper lady rescues him when his horse is injured. He can’t help but notice that Lady Violette is in need of rescuing herself. Much as she tempts him, he can’t be the man that saves her.
Theo is definitely no ordinary Englishman. He’s about to go and face the music about his duties as the duke of the area. And he’s not a willing one. I thought it was funny that he looked like such a wild rogue with his beard and tanned skin. So...scraggly according to the time and place. And he happens upon the Lady Violette on his way home. Funny thing is they are going the same way. But she is more than just a social climber. She has her family to care for since her father is no longer there to. And he left them in a bad situation. But she is quite a character. She’s willing to give up her whole life by marrying someone who might not care at all about her. Just to ensure her family’s future. I found her a very strong and wonderful character. I liked Theo too, but he needed a little settling. Great read! 5 out of 5 stars!
