    Fabulous Historical Romance

    The Duke Who Ravished Me is my first book by Diana Quincy so I didn't know what to expect. What a fantastic surprise. Ms. Quincy has delivered a book that is well-written and packed with outstanding, lovable characters. Adam is a rake and is shocked when his uncle sends two young girls to be his wards. Isabel is the governess of the two girls and is willing to fight for them. Isobel and Adam's story is filled with drama, humor (Kudos to Ms. Quincy for the perfect blend of humor in this story.), a little angst and of course, sexy bits. This book hooked me at page 1 and held me captive until the end. I look forward to reading more from Diana Quincy in the future. The Duke Who Ravished Me is book 4 of the Rebellious Brides Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Everything Is Not As It Seems

    The Duke of Sunderford, Adam Fairfax, is better known to the “ton” as Sinful Sunny. In The Duke Who Ravished Me he has earned this reputation through a number of debauched entertainments which he holds in his home. While in the middle of just such an entertainment his enjoyment is interrupted by the arrival of visitors. He is very disgruntled when he has to put aside the pleasures of the two young ladies he’s playing with in order to find out what is going on. His Uncle Abel apparently has claimed a heart condition. He no longer feels able to continue as guardian and has sent the children from his home in Cornwall on a several days journey to London. Twins Patience and Prudence are two charming little girls, but who in their right mind would send them to live as wards with a bachelor of Adams reputation? But Uncle Abel wants them to be settled before his health worsens. Isabel Finch, the governess to the young girls, is clearly a gentlewoman. She has taken care of the children for several years while they were with Uncle Abel. She is determined to protect them from the Duke’s debauchery. Everything Is Not As It Seems Throwing a couple of innocent children into the lap of a libertine is one way of attempting to reform him. I think it is clear that this is the reason why Uncle Abel sent the children in the first place. I found it interesting that the Duke felt that the governess to be entirely without charm when first they met. It soon becomes apparent that she not only has charms, but they are exactly the sort he likes. There were some interesting twists and turns in this book that I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters were interesting and very well written. The girls were charming and entirely adorable. This is the fourth in the Rebellious Brides series, which includes Spy Fall, A License To Wed, and From London With Love, though works very well as a standalone novel. I will be happy to read more from Diana Quincy. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    I enjoyed the story and the character interactions

    Adam, the Duke of Sunderford, also known as Sinful Sunny, enjoys his life of debauchery and has embraced it fully. When he is told that he is now ward to two twin 7 year old girls and a governess who is prudish and dull, he refuses to give up his vices. Isabel is living with a lot of secrets and has gone through a lot of heartache, so when the two girls end up in Adam’s care she doesn’t hide her displeasure or judgment of Adam’s chosen life style. Isabel and Adam butt heads from the very beginning and Adam thinks she is the least attractive and most dull woman he has ever met but he starts to see glimpses of a different side to her when she doesn’t think he is looking that starts to make Adam question who is the real Isabel. The twins also start to burrow under Adam’s skin and before he realizes it his old lifestyle no longer appeals. When Isabel and the girls rush back to Cornwall after his annual ball where things heated up, he comes to realize how much the girls and Isabel have come to mean to him. When they return, he promises Isabel to never again disrespect her, but when she finds out all of the changes he has made in his life to make the girls feel at home she can’t keep her distance any longer. But when Adam thinks that she betrayed him and means to steal the girls away from him he over reacts and fears that he might just have lost her for good. Lots of secrets have to be revealed for the two main characters to have their happily ever after and the way everything comes together in the end was great. It did have some slow parts and I would have liked a bit more added to the conclusion, but overall I enjoyed the story and the character interactions.

    From Sinful to Faithful

    I haven't read any of the other books in this series but I didn't need to to understand the synopsis. Sunny's enjoyment of women is written into the first chapter, as is the mood killer that sets the tone and provoked questions from me I wasn't sure would get answered. Would he change? Would he accept them? Would he continue with his parade of women with the children in the house? Would he change? For the first half of the book, I feared I would end up staying on the fence about Sunny, waffling between liking and hating him. A man like Sunny didn't seem capable of changing. But, as I understand it, his friends did so why not him? Perhaps he just needed a reality check, a dose of responsibility, and a woman willing to challenge him to rise to the occasion (no pun intended) instead of shirking his duty in favor of the pursuit of fleshly pleasure. It wasn't a matter of did he want this because it was obvious he didn't. He was neither pleased nor wholeheartedly welcoming of his wards and their governess when he first met them. His corner-of-the-mouth snide remarks of Isabel swung me more towards hating him. Aside from being different from the women he bedded, she'd done nothing to deserve what he said. Both Sunny and Isabel's pasts are scattered throughout the story. The truth is harsher than words can accurately describe but I liked that they weren't heavily dwelt on either. Revealing their respective pasts served as a means of getting to know one another better, of understanding why they were the way they were. And they, the characters, made more sense because of this. The twins are darlings. They were what Sunny needed, dashes of life and sunshine and goodness he himself hadn't experienced before. They were Isabel's rocks, her purpose, her life. They were the catalyst these two adults needed to come together and find a life beyond what they believed they deserved. The biggest question I wanted answered was would he change? I can say it felt like he did. It was magnificent and amusingly satisfying to watch him fall from his sinful throne to his knees in front of the only woman his heart, soul, mind, and body wanted. And that ending? That twist was well-written and perfectly timed. I certainly didn't see it coming yet it fit right in. I will wholeheartedly admit that this story may not be to everyone's liking. Sunny is not an easy man to like, and Isabel hides too much in the shadows of her past. But if you hang in there and push through, I believe you'll find the story worth reading. I did and I had major doubts at the beginning I wouldn't. Received from publisher for an honest review
