    An original dog lovers historical romance

    I absolutely loved this book! Some scenes were very funny as Margaret finds a stray dog and wants to keep him. He isn’t exactly well behaved though and she has no experience with pets. They run into the Duke of St. Lawrence and his prize bulldog at the park the next day and things do not go well. As time passes, the two keep meeting at dog walking time. They come from different classes though, they can never be more than friends, can they? This is the first book in a series about the duke and his siblings. The characters, canine and human, are wonderful. The duke is surprised and pleased she doesn’t know who he is at first and even when she does find out isn’t impressed by his title. He is used to females trying to trap him into marriage. His younger sister is the typical pest who won’t stay out of his business, and his brothers sound like a handful, but they are a close, loving family. I loved that the dogs remain prominent throughout the book. We do have a crisis later in the book, one which I have not encountered in books set in 1850’s England making this a breath of fresh air in many ways. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    A Delightful Story!

    What a charming story that had me smiling and laughing in the first chapter! Margaret kept hearing something every night outside her window and thought they were rumaging in the trash and slinking around the house. Set to confront whoever it was, she finds instead a little terrior dog and brings him in. She names him Clover and he is very unrully! Let the fun begin! Edward Cherrill, the Duke of St Lawrence loves his prize bulldog Tiger. Walking him in the park early one morning, this little terror runs out of the bushes and attacks Tiger! Of course Margaret catches up and tries to grab the little scoundrel! He gives her advice on trying to handle the dog and she is quiet contrite at what happened. Fate and a pair of dogs brought these two together. Edward is such a by the book stern character.. "He was no mere Duke, he was the Duke. The eleventh Duke of St Lawrence, well known and respected." So you see he came a long way to loosing up as they spent time together. But she was the orphan daughter of two missonaries and he was the Duke! Could the friendship they began go anywhere else? Allyson Jeleyne has created a warmhearted tale that lightened my heart when I needed it most! Her descriptions and the lively banter and antics of the dogs kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.

    sweet charming story

    This is a sweet charming story by an author I haven’t read before. This is a fairly quick read and the steady pace, wonderfully developed characters and well written plot seemed to make the time fly by and I had finished the book in no time at all. There is some humor and 2 adorable dogs in this period romance. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Margaret Haselden decided there was a prowler lurking outside her home after three nights She Informed Her Uncle Chas who sent her coachman to investigate no one found anything. Margaret knew that there was somebody there and her and her maid thought of a way to discover who it was, the maid didn't like the idea though. Margaret snuck out of the house she was going to confront the prowler; someone had been rummaging in the garbage bends she called for him to come out no one answered. She called again, and out of the corner of her eye she saw someone behind the milk crates she longed for the crate it cell then it began to rattle and shake and danced across the pavement a small brown dog emerged from the great and Margaret fell in love the dog was no peeping Tom no prowler just a little hungry dog she picked them up and took and carried them into the house. So her in the maid went to the kitchen to bathe Clover after all that's what she named the dog then all sorts of trouble occurred Clover didn't want to bath he got loose they couldn't catching and who should happen to come up on the scene her Uncle Chas who told them they were going to have to clean up the kitchen and not leave a mess for the servants when they came in the morning. The next morning Margaret and Susan took Clover for a walk in Regents Park. Edward, the 11th Duke of St. Lawrence was in the park walking his dog Tiger this was the Duke's favorite part of the day. Margaret and Susan was walking Clover when he slipped his lead found Tiger and bit him in the back leg or hip area after the Duke got him off of Tiger Margaret reached out and grabbed Clover and he bit her then promptly buried himself in her skirts the Duke called him a rat or in a mongrel and told her that he should be in the stables the alley the gutter art the blood is sewer the dog was uncivilized and dangerous and shouldn't be in a public park. Margaret offered to pay for the services of a veterinarian and the cost of his care Duke told her to keep her money of course now Margaret didn't realize he was the Duke. Now to find out what else happens and who else Clover bites you have to read the book. And it's a good book...

    This one is so cute.

    This one is so cute I loved Margaret this character has a heart of gold. Then there is pup a little dog that attacked a bigger dog that just happens to belong to a duke and is a prize winner. I bet you can see where this leads. Edward, of course, is a bit of a stick in the mud but then things change for him. This book is like the pup it grabs hold of you and will not let go but trust me you will enjoy yourself. High praise for this delightful tale I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
