    Loved the Premises for the Story

    Closer to 3 1/2. I loved the premises for the story. The ending was perfect besides a few sticking points. My problem with the book was I felt it was almost 30% dialogue and 70% musing. There was entirely too much thinking being done and less talking/action taking place for me. The actual story was touching, romantic, and emotional..but I found myself skimming over 1-2 pages to get to the dialogue. Thank you for the advanced copy.

    I could easily recommend this to anyone who enjoy

    What I liked: I don't read a lot of historical romance novels. I was pleasantly surprised by How to Love a Duke in Ten Days. The main female characters were not timid creatures driven by the rules society deems appropriate. Lady Alexandra Lane attains a respectable profession and becomes independent. Likewise, the Piers Atherton the Duke of Redmayne is not a stuffy aristocrat. He feels more at home away from the other nobles and is not looking to gain more prestige. At its heart, this book is the story of a woman reclaiming peace after a horrible experience causes severe PTSD. *Warning, anyone who has a trigger involving sexual abuse should tread cautiously.* Alex finds a way to overcome her fears of intimacy and comes out better in the end. Her journey is profound and inspiring. What I didn't like: In a nutshell, secrets. Misunderstandings, when one could have just been completely honest from the beginning, does not endear me to the characters. I felt the decision to hold things in so long really drew things out unnecessarily. I will say that it opened up room for character development, so I get where it came from. All in all, I enjoyed reading this early copy of How to Love a Duke in Ten Days. I could easily recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good historical romance.

    Excellent start to a new series, read it!

    Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for introducing me to a new author and the delightful start of a new series. How to Love a Duke in Ten Days is a wonderful historical romance, taking place in the late 1800’s, when things were starting to become a little more modern but women were still expected to know their place. This is a tale that is full of laugh out loud humor and seriously sexy scenes (and a Duke, sigh!), but a story that also deals with some very somber issues in a sensitive, realistic manner. Something terrible, unspeakable, happened to Alexandra at the young age of 17 and, at least in her eyes, it has ruined her life forever. She has a very successful career in a field usually reserved for men doing work she loves, many casual friends, and the love, trust and undying friendship of the two schoolmates who were there when the horrible event occurred and who share her secret. But as for men, that’s another story. They bring nothing but trouble and heartache and Alex has no intention of opening her heart to one. Besides, if her secret ever comes out no one will ever want her anyway, and the lives of her friends Cecilia and Francesca will now be ruined because of her as well. But enter Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, brave and strong (and sullen and angry), once breathtakingly handsome but now known as the Terror of Torcliff due to a disfiguring accident. What follows is oh so funny and sweet and also sad and thought-provoking and dangerous and scary. This isn’t just a story about lords and ladies and how true love should conquer all; there is a real plot and storyline and some excellent writing in How to Love a Duke in Ten Days. The characters are well-developed and interesting, with deep backstories and motivations. And the danger feels real. It’s complicated and as the story moves along you aren’t sure who is in danger and why. What seemed obvious isn’t obvious at all. After some very exciting events and some fun and romance How to Love a Duke in Ten Days arrives at a very satisfying conclusion, with just enough tidbits left hanging to whet your appetite for what will hopefully be two more books in the series about Cecilia and Francesca. I received a copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I loved it, highly recommend it, and can’t wait for this entertaining story to continue.

    Historical Romance

    How to Love A Duke in Ten Days by Kerrigan Byrnne Devil You Know #1 Excellent book ~ Once I picked it up I could not put it down! Kerrigan Byrnne is an author I eagerly await books from. Every time I have read one of her stories I am moved. The characters are strong, complex and people I can relate to. The romances are rich. The descriptions make me feel I am there. I get swept into the story and hate leaving the characters behind even though I am eager to pick up the next book in the series as soon as it is available. Three young girls at boarding school form a club. They are young and silly and adventurous and very very intelligent. They would do anything for one another. The headmaster of the school is someone the students are leery of as they know he enjoys handing out punishments and relishes the pain he delivers. In the prologue we find out just how evil he is and how he impacts the heroine of this story. We pick up the tale ten years later and Alexandra, Francesca and Cecelia are still best friends and single as they are nearing thirty. When Francesca requests Alexandra’s assistance she heads immediately to help her friend and finds that Francesca is betrothed to a man she doesn’t want to marry. An alternative might be available if all parties are willing. Piers Gedrick Atherton, Duke of Redmayne is a man among men. He is everything one looks for in the hero of a story. He is strong, intelligent, capable, protective, generous and scarred. When he meets Alexandra there is instant chemistry but with the backstories they both have their journey to a HEA will not be easy. What I liked: * The three female friends – what a wonder it would be to have such strong friends forever * Alexandra – he willingness to do what she needs to to help her friends and family. She is also a person I would love to have had as a friend. * Piers – oh my! I can’t think of anything I did NOT like about him! * The flow of the writing that swept me in * The introduction to people that may show up in later books in the series * Everything...I mean...I am rating it five stars and really really enjoyed it! What I did not like: * The people I was meant not to like...and there were more than one or two. * The pain that Alexandra and Piers suffered This is a story that is to be savored. The romance is exquisite and the relationship between Alexandra and Piers so very well crafted. The evil people were truly evil and to be despised and I did so with relish. I can’t wait to find out happens in book two of this series...I believe it will be Cecilia’s story and do look forward to reading it. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Paperbacks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Beauty and the Beast

    I absolutely fell in love with this book! Alexandra is meeting her friend for a ball where the Duke of Redmayne will announce their engagement. She has a harrowing escape from being trampled by a horse with the clever use of her umbrella and the animal handler from Redmayne’s stables. He happens to be the Duke himself. Get ready for the ride of your life. These girls are hiding some huge secrets. This is the best retelling of Beauty and the Beast ever! 5 amazing stars
