  • Lovely

    Edward was a solicitor before he inherited the dukedom. He's got a son from his first marriage, but the boy is lonely and needs a mother. None of the debutantes Edward meets interest him, and most of the ton look down on him due to his low origins. Jo is a widow who runs a home for abandoned women. She enjoys her independent life and has no desire to marry again. At a house party, her friends pressure her into a courtship with Edward. Despite the chemistry between them, she doesn't trust in love. Can Edward and his adorable son win her over? This is a character-driven novel where most of the drama comes from Jo's reluctance to marry, and her friends' interference. It's absurd (in a funny way) how paranoid she is about the people in her life trying to make her into a duchess, as if that's a bad thing. This book is as much her journey to self-awareness as it is a love story. And poor Edward! He's a big cuddle bear, and such a good dad. It's lovely to see him get his HEA with the woman he needs for himself and his son. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Finding love at last

    This is the first book I have read in the series, but I have always enjoyed the author's writing. I found this romance lighthearted and entertaining with a gentlemanly hero and a woman who is determined to stand on her own two feet. The Dule of Grainger has made no secret of the fact that he is looking for a wife and a mother to his son. However, it is young Thomas who makes himself known to Lady Jo and makes his feelings heard on the subject. As Edward and Jo are thrown together by well-meaning friends, Jo experiences a certain amount of frustration, especially as she has determined to remain single and never again to allow herself to be put under the domination of any man. However, she cannot ignore her attraction towards Edward and also finds herself softening towards his son and his dog. Taking time and patience to win her over, Edward eventually breaks through the barriers, bringing this novel to a happy conclusion. I received a copy of this novel as a gift through NetGalley and this is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Wonderful Novel

    Lady Josephine Havenridge is a widow. She started a Home as a sanctuary for women and children in dire need. Her two friends helped her run it, but the ladies had gotten married and moved with their husbands. She was feeling the pressure of having all the responsibility. She had been invited to her friend's house for a Christening. Edward Russell, the Duke of Grainger, also had a christening to go to. He was looking for a wife. A year ago he had been a solicitor and now a duke. His young son, Thomas needed a mother. He could not handle the ton anymore. So he left early. He had been helping with the home, and he was excited he was going to meet the founder. They had been writing for at least a year. So they all got packed up, including bear and Thomas, and off they went. This was a really cute story. I even giggled some. It was funny and encouraging. When she saw her friends again I enjoyed reading about the hugs and excitement among the three women. Jo's interaction with the other house guests was fun to read. It was wonderfully written and very entertaining. I highly recommend this novel and hope you like it as much as I did. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
