    Superb!

    Superb! Any fan of historical romance will enjoy Dancing In The Duke's Arms. This romantic anthology allowed me to discovery authors that I may not have read before. Each author adds their own unique voice enabling readers to escape into a world of beauty, majesty and fairytale romance. The beauty of this compilation is that although each story is written by a different author they all are centered around the same event. I love these type of stories because I enjoy catching glimpses from other characters in previous stories. How would I describe Dancing In The Duke's Arms? Romantically entertaining historical romance.

    Four Dukes Are Better Than One

    What's not to love about a book that features stories about four dashing dukes by four talented writers of historical romance? Dancing in the Duke's Arms transports readers back to the 1800s, when the British aristocracy led glamorous lives that most people couldn't begin to imagine. It's summer in Nottinghamshire, and the dukes who reside in this corner of England, of course, face pressure to continue the family name and the family lineage, and often contracted loveless marriages to enrich the family coffers or enhance the pedigree of future offspring. Luckily for the intelligent, spirited women in the stories who are invited to the Duke of Sedgemere's house party -- or arrive accidentally -- our heroes don't bow to convention and decide in favour of love, rather than connections, although the path to Happily Ever After isn't smooth. Grace Burrowes captivates readers with her warm, witty heroes and their humanity; as always, I found myself wanting to find one of these men for myself! They cherish the women in their lives and adore children, and they all have a sense of humour. The Duke of Hardcastle is no exception, and the story is as enjoyable as any of her full-length novels. In Mirana Neville's capable hands, the estranged Duke and Duchess of Linton find their way back to the love they should have had from the start of their marriage, and it's interesting to see the changes made possible through maturity and insight. I was rooting for both of these wonderful, but imperfect, people. Shana Galen's resourceful Princess Vivienne doesn't follow the standard model of the gently-bred virgin heroine, which offers possibilities that writers of period romances rarely have. Although this story was my least favourite of the four, the Duke of Wyndover is a male model come to life with depth and caring, and what woman can resist that combination? In Carolyn Jewel's story, the Duke of Stoke Teversault is a reserved, dutiful man who doesn't display emotion easily, and I loved seeing him unbend a bit in the company of lively, spirited "George," the widowed heroine. As she comes to know him, she learns to read him better and discovers he is not as forbidding as she initially believed -- at least, not to those for whom he cares. So, take a trip back in time and you'll discover love among the Dukes and, perhaps, fall in love with each couple yourself.
