    Oh yes, A Duke!

    When American Sarah Bumgarten is rejected by an earl, she decides she's had enough of the marraige mart for now. She decides to goes to an estate that is in her brother in law's family, with the current Duke of Meridian being absent for several years. Relieved to be away from the Ton, she and her wonderful menagerie of animals, decide to make improvements to the country estate. But not everyone is happy about her being there and when a stranger shows up who gets injured, he ends up recooperating at the manor. Then the journey begins! Arthur, the Duke who has been away has suffered a lot of heartbreak but after being away many years. He has come back to take back his life and he finds Sarah in his home. I have to say, this story had a little of it all! Humor, heartache, suspense, romance, wonderful secondary characters and of course a hero I could not help but love with a strong heroine. Just adored this story! I read this through NetGallery

    Anyone But A Duke!

    I loved this book. It had everything I like in a romance- great characters, a wonderful plot full of intrigue, deception, and suspense, and a romance that will curl your toes. Although, I wish that Ms. Krahn would write more stories with these characters. I wouldn't mind a story about Sarah's mother!?! I received an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A great tale of second chance

    When a long-lost duke reappears, what will do the woman who have taken the mantle of managing his estate... This is my first read by Mrs Betina Krahn, and despite this book being the last in a series, I never felt lost. At first I wondered during which period the story was set, thermometers and stethoscope plus train, I knew we were probably during the Victorian area, then a note of the author by the end of the book, settles the action in 1890, which explains more easily the different advancements in science. I just loved this tale, nothing was rushed, and even if the novel is essentially from the main couple’s point of view, it has some insights from side characters. The tension in the story is brought slowly, the author takes her time to introduce the different protagonists, then she sets everything in motion. It was not a lust-charged romance, Arthur and Sarah get to know one another, then learn about each other before being able to give their truth. When a round of events bring them on the same path, from this point they will have to work together before they might believe they can count on the other. Sarah has sought shelter at her brother-in-law’s estate, she is clever and not afraid of hard work why it is there she found a true new direction for her life, slowly she is rebuilding her sister’s husband holdings, and there she felt at her right place. Here, she feels she is more than tolerated, she has been accepted as part of their own. Yet things are not quiet and all is not rosy, danger and greed lurk in the corner. And It is this threatening menace that brought Arthur at her doorstep. Arthur left his home and country heartbroken, and from there, he was bond to bad luck, accumulating issue after issue. My heart rooted for him with everything he endured before he was able to regain his freedom. He payed a heavy price during his six years of estrangement, it shaped him in a very different man, his errors and pains made him grow. Now back home, he is no longer the young confused lord he once was, unaware of his duty, he learned the value of hard works and now is ready to prove his worth to be accepted in the bosom of a clan. It is a spirited and delightful tale of a second chance at life and love, with two peoples who work hand in hand to revive a country’s land, and in the process come to view the other as an asset for their own life. Up to them to fight their own demons and go for what or who really matters. I just loved they do not let miscommunication nor misconceptions ruin their relationship, they are able to discuss and express their fears and doubts. And they are reasonable when it is shown to them they were on a wrong path. They do not let anger or worry damage their link. 5 stars for this astonishing tale of two resilient persons whose love and care for all the lives around, pet or human, shows their true color. I was granted an advance copy by the publisher on Netgalley, I also purchased my own. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.
