    The Duke of Nothing

    I have read a few books by Jess. So when I saw it I grabbed it to review. I am glad that I did. Jess got a good story line with a different read. Baldwin grew up watching his father, a Duke, to lose his money. Jump ahead and after he gets to be the Duke of Sheffield, after his father is dead. P tries to help his mother not know that they are in dire trouble. His sister and friends know that he has a mess but won't talk about it. Now the Season is starting up and he has to pick a Rich wife! Major Spoiler! He goes outside to hide. He sees a special girl at a wall. He thinks she is the American and she thinks he is Rich! Life can't always work right. He meets Charity and her father who is a rich brute. This is where the end is coming. I was surprised on the end. I hope you like the beginning so you stay for the end! This is a book you can't put down. But then you have to walk away! You won't regret it! Enjoy!

    Historical Romance

    The Duke of Nothing by Jess Michaels The 1797 Club #5 Ten teens at boarding school form a club to assist one another as they grow into their positions of being dukes one day - The 1797 Club - this series is already plotted out to have ten volumes starring the ten original members of the club. Over the years a bond stronger and closer, in some ways, than that of blood brothers is formed. In each book of the series we find out what has become of the members of the club and who they will find their HEA with. Baldwin Undercross, Duke of Sheffield, is living a lie. He is pinching pennies, pretending his finances are not disastrous and being pushed by his mother to marry an heiress to put the estate to rights. His father had a gambling addiction that depleted the coffers and his life, after his father’s death, has not been easy. At least his sister is married to a duke and safe financially but still…his burden is great and rather bothersome…made even MORE bothersome when he meets and falls for Helena Monroe and she does NOT have the money to offer as a dowry that he so desperately needs. Who is Helena? She is the cousin and lady’s companion to THE HEIRESS of the season. Both were brought to England so Charlotte can snag a title. Charlotte’s father is an uncouth lout that is really not good for any woman to be aligned with and especially heinous to Helena. Both Helena and Baldwin have secrets that are shared eventually. The two do fall in love but whether or not duty & money or Love and lack of finances will win is what this book is all about. A fun read with believable H/h duet…I enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series…so nice to know that there ARE more books to look forward to reading :) Thank you to NetGalley and The Passionate Pen for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

    Nothing duke.

    Baldwin and Helena meet and live eachother in this nicely packed story. How Baldwin manages to pay his remaining debts remained a mystery but it is a good book. Waiting now to read the next one in this series.

    The Duke who learns love concours all!

    Baldwin Undercross, Duke of Sheffield, is one of the most handsome and intriguing dukes of The 1797 Club. Just look at that cover! We got to see more of him in the fourth novel, The Silent Duke, in which his sister married one of his closest friends. Now, it’s Baldwin’s turn to marry, whether he wants it to be or not. He’s been hiding a dark secret since he became the Duke of Sheffield five years earlier. His father’s gambling and bad judgement with his finances has left them broke and Baldwin can no longer keep them afloat. When he discovers three debts of his father’s totaling 5,000 pounds, he decides he must marry for money and fast. His mother brings up the possibility of marrying an American heiress new in town. Unfortunately he mistakes the heiress’s cousin for her and the spark is lit. Helena Monroe has come to England to be her cousin Charity’s companion while Charity parades herself on the marriage mart. An accidental meeting on a terrace blossoms into a love that Helena never imagined she would know. I fell in love with Helena’s character instantly. While she was unable to show the world who she was because of her past indiscretion (which wasn’t even her fault), once she’s accepted by Baldwin’s set, she has friends for life. Both Helena and Baldwin put up an obstacle for their futures brought on by their stubborn pride. Their slow progression was frustrating at times and I swear I would’ve smacked each of them at some point, but it really did help in the development of their relationship. There were moments of joy and of heartache, but in the end, the duke won the heart of his lady love. I am chopping at the bit for the six remaining books in the series releasing in 2018. While this novel can easily be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend reading the entire series thus far. The 1797 Club series is a brilliant idea as a whole and Michaels gives us a five star read with each novel. I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
