    Good Start for a New Series

    Once upon a time there was a banker waiting to be hanged and a young pregnant widow who accompanies her crazy Vicar Papa when he comes to the prison to perform his mission. The banker and the young woman talk and come to like each other. They marry so that the young woman can take care of herself and the baby, his final act of kindness. Wait… Quinn doesn’t die (it could not have been any closer); he is apparently heir to a duchy and is now the Duke of Walden. Jane is not a twice-widowed mother; she is now a duchess. This is a very entertaining and busy story. Quinn and Jane must learn to handle the responsibilities of their new station while coming to know each other. Jane must also learn to cope with Quinn’s unusual family, which now includes also, not just Jane, but the “staff” Quinn brought out of prison with him. There’s lots to do, so much to learn, including who was behind Quinn’s murder charge and near fatal prison stay. As I said, this is a busy story written in Grace Burrowes typical engaging and witty style. The characters, from the hero and heroine to loveable Ned, exhibit strength, intelligence, caring and confidence (although a little uncertainty appears at times). Well-written descriptions of the characters, the settings, and the circumstances draw the reader into the story. The story is well paced and has some drama, danger, and mystery mixed with the fun and romance. My One and Only Duke is a great beginning for what promises to be another wonderful series by Grace Burrowes. You don’t want to miss it! The bonus novella was a treat! I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

    Grace Burrowes delivers an excellent story

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. My One And Only Duke by Grace Burrowes is the first book in what looks to be an excellent new series called Rogues to Riches. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it. Quinn Wentworth a wealthy self made banker is waiting to be executed for a murder he didn’t commit and his execution gets postponed because the executioner is ill, he meets Jane Winston a vicars daughter when she is sent into his cell to wait while her father ministers to the prisoners. Jane a recent widow is expecting a child and her prospects look almost as bleak as Quinn’s . Quinn proposes that they marry as he can provide financially for her and won’t be needing the money himself. Instead of becoming a widow twice over Jane becomes the bride of the new Duke of Walden when Quinn is saved from the hangman at the last possible moment with a royal pardon. Grace Burrowes has written a wonderful story about how these two find their way to HEA from such a desperate beginning and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

    Great start to a new series....

    My One and Only Duke, the first title in Grace Burrowes' new Rogues to Riches series, will draw you in to the lives of Quinn Wentworth, Jane Winston, and the Wentworth family. Quinn Wentworth is a wealthy banker who has been framed and sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit. His money has eased his stay in Newgate while awaiting his day with the hangman. Jane Winston has come to Newgate with her father, a vicar who ministers to the prison population. She has been left widowed and pregnant after her husband dies in a duel. Quinn meets her during her visits and, upon learning her precarious situation, offers a marriage of convenience and a settlement that will provide independence for her and her child after Quinn's death. "Money changes everything. It changes how you're perceived and treated, how you approach others. The changes aren't always for the better but not having money can be fatal." Having money proves providential for Quinn, as he is granted a last-minute reprieve and pardon when he is found to be the heir to a bankrupt dukedom. Society had tolerated him because most either owed him money or were beholden to him. Now, he has become a duke and has a duchess. Quinn and Jane learn to deal with their new station in life and each other, but Quinn won't rest easy until he finds out who framed him. Grace Burrowes is an author whose books I've read and enjoyed, and this book is no exception. Her writing and character development is top-notch. While the book can be read as a stand alone, Burrowes does leave enough unanswered to tempt us. I'm definitely looking forward to the other books in the series, as I want to learn what else is in store for the Wentworths!
