    Brilliant, gorgeous; simply wonderful!

    Lady Eleanor – Ellie – Palmer had been living at her brother Sidney’s for a few years, since she became a widow, but with the arrival of Sidney’s first child, Ellie feels it’s time to move on. She does want to marry again, but to someone proper, not like her late husband, the dashing wastrel Adrian Palmer. Ellie dreams of someone who will love and respect her. Sidney and Ellie have been friends with Nicholas Langford, the Duke of Hampshire, since they were children, and Nicholas proposes that Ellie stay at his mother’s estate while she is away for the Season, which seems ideal to Ellie: it will make it easier for her to find a husband. Nick is wife-hunting, he’s merely looking for a woman who will provide him with heirs and let him be. Things are going according to plan for both Ellie and Nick until a very unusual event changes everything. And that unusual event is brilliant, and one I don’t recall ever having seen before. Nick is one of the most complex characters I have ever seen: he takes his duties that come with his title very seriously, he’s extremely meticulous and orderly, and still a bit of a rogue. He’s also very playful, and sometimes a bit too impetuous for the good of those around him; he doesn’t always think before he acts. Ellie has always loved Nick, he’s the reason why she had married Palmer, and even if she still sees Nick as a friend, she’s not going to make the same mistake twice; Nick is too much like her late husband. Ellie is a lovely character, and Ms. Romain conveys beautifully the melancholy that lingers in Ellie’s heart, which is not always apparent to everyone. It was so easy to identify with her; through the sunny, witty banter she engaged with Nick, there remained a touch of resignation and sadness to her. Theresa Romain’s prose is as light and shimmering as butterfly wings, MY SCANDALOUS DUKE is all delicate pastels, and gorgeously written. I have loved every book of Ms. Romain’s because of her refined touch, her clever dialogues, her understanding of the affairs of the heart, and her touching and beautifully human characters. And the ending is simply glorious! MY SCANDALOUS DUKE is another splendid book by the incomparable Theresa Romain! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    THE REAL DEAL ...

    Window dressing grabs the attention but does not a story make. My Scandalous Duke has shock value, Ms. Romain thrives on attention grabbing presention. However, behind all that lipstick and mascara lies an organic story of beauty and sacrifice. Peel away the camouflage and a deeply moving love story reveals itself. Eleanor yearns to be loved, Nicholas wants only her happiness. Within the depths of their relationships lies the answer to their problems. Will they risk it? Theresa Romain delivers a meat and potatoes (THE REAL DEAL) performance here.
