    The Last Duke

    Good book. I did feel that some of the books in the series needed a bit more depth to them. As a whole the series was fun to read.

    Sweet story

    The Last Duke is the final book in the 1797 Club series (#10) and features Kit Collins (Duke of Kingsacre) and governess Sarah Carlton. While the writing was top notch and the characters likeable, I felt it was a bit of a slow starter. I just didn't find the book as exciting or as much of a page turner when compared to other 1797 Club books. That being said Jess Michaels remains one of my all time favorite authors.

    historical romance

    What’s a reader to do after reading the last page in the last book of a beloved series? Started at the beginning again OR wait for what comes next? All ten Dukes, who formed a bond long ago in boarding school and have been there for one another through thick and thin, have found their duchesses by the end of this book and they are all on their way to creating a new generation that will be there for one another in the future. Loved this series! Christopher “Kit” Collins, Earl of Idlewood becomes Duke of Kingsacre upon the death of his father and just before his father dies he tells Kit to accept the support of Sarah Carlton, governess to Kit’s young sister. Kit has grief to deal with, estates to take over, a young half-sister to support and mixed feelings about the governess he believes he dislikes due to one overheard conversation years before. His friends are there for him but so is Sarah. The two want what is best for his sister Phoebe and spend time discussing her and other issues that arise. Slowly things begin to change between them but Kit is slow to twig to what is changing. Throw in an unscrupulous woman with an agenda of her own to throw a wrench in the situation and you have the makings of a story that I could not put down. I was thrilled with the way Kit and Sarah managed their HEA and loved the epilogue that sees all ten dukes and their families gathered together for a joyous event. Thank you to NetGalley and The Passionate Pen for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    The Duke Does Protest A Little Too Mu h

    This is my favorite in the series. I like how Kit 'subconsciously' leans on Sarah. How he really sees her even when he doesn't want to. I liked Sarah's vulnerability and her heart. It was a beautiful read.

    Loving the Last Duke!

    I’m saddened that this series has come to an end, but I’m ecstatic to finally read Kit’s story! Christopher “Kit” Collins becomes the Duke of Kingsacre upon his beloved father’s death. Kit is lost in grief and learning how to move forward in caring for the dukedom and his five-year-old sister, Phoebe. He also has Sarah Carlton to deal with. When Sarah behaved at her worst towards Meg, the Duchess of Crestwood, Kit was there to call her out. Three years later and a fall from grace due to the death of her mother, Sarah is the governess to the grieving Phoebe and hopefully a friend to the new duke. Michaels brought out the big guns for this finale. All the dukes, their wives, and children are with Kit at his estate before and for the weeks after the death of Kit’s father. I love how Michaels brought out something special for each duke to interact with Kit about. James, being the first duke in the series and the leader of the 1797 Club, has a memorable moment with Kit. Kit has a brilliantly written scene between he and Robert and helps Matthew when old memories come back to haunt. I love how even in death Kit’s father showed his love for his children. Sarah’s position as a governess makes her believe she is beneath the dukes and duchesses, yet they don’t make her feel like it. Isabel, the Duchess of Tyndale, had been a dear friend to Sarah for many years. It was wonderful reading Sarah’s interactions with Isabel, Meg, and Diana. As for their love story, Sarah never thought Kit noticed her until he chastised her on her behavior. Even Kit didn’t realize until much later he’d been watching and wanting Sarah way before that terrible encounter. Near tragedy brings Kit’s molten feelings to the surface. Once he lets himself reach for Sarah, the steaminess fills the pages. I wish for more stories of these amazing dukes and their families, but all good things come to an end. I’m glad Michaels ending the series with Kit and Sarah’s story. It is a dynamic twist on romancing the governess troupe. I can’t say this enough, but I love how all of The 1797 Club was there for Kit, Phoebe, and Sarah in this novel. By the way, Phoebe is a little firecracker who I wouldn’t mind getting a story about when she gets older. All in all, I can’t say enough about how much I love these characters and will cherish them always. I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
