    He definitely is one fine Duke

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. One Fine Duke by Lenora Bell is the 3rd book in her The School for Dukes Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone but I very much enjoyed the first two books and recommend reading them all. After her parents died Miss Wilhelmina Penny (Mina) came under the care of her Uncle who devastated by the loss of her parents and his wife and daughter has been very overprotective and now that she has a chance to have a London season she is going to do her best to enjoy it to the utmost, so she is quite dismayed when her Uncle tells her she must marry and suggests that the Duke of Thorndale is the man for her. When She meets Andrew (Drew) Bentley, Duke of Thorndale (who is by the way one fine Duke … sigh) she does her best to repulse him and inadvertently peaks his interest instead. Spies and blackmail, revenge, a scandalous red dress and an even more scandalous mechanical chair make this funny and steamy story a delight to read. I enjoyed it very much. Medium Steam.

    Oh wow, so well deserving of huge 5 stars!

    Oh wow, this book really took me by storm and is so well deserving of huge 5 stars! We first start off with a man running for his life bare naked down the streets of London, it is no other than rake Rafe the brother to the Duke of Thorndon who happens to be coming by in his carriage. Seeing his brother he scrambles him inside and they get to his townhouse and Drew (Thorndon) inquired about a letter he received regarding their sister. Rafe, of course, gets upset and off he goes, not revealing anything to Drew, he only informs him that he’d best be prepared for the upcoming ball as their mother is on the marriage hunt and with Drew, back in town she’s going to be trying to find him a match. Drew has lived the past five years in the countryside attending to their decrepit estate and trying to revitalize and found through farming he has been able to put to rest some of his past, a past that is now coming back to him in full force with the threat in the letter. He does desire marriage but he wants a calm lady who is good with her hands and isn’t afraid of farming, he definitely does not want a whiny girl. We next meet Whilemena or otherwise known as Miss Mina Penny at her Uncle’s townhouse where she’s being prepared for the season. She truly does not desire marriage except to only one person and that is for a very specific reason, to be a spy and live a life of danger and adventure. That particular person happens to be Rafe, the Duke of Thorndon’s rakish brother. She’s met him several times at her uncle’s country estate and knows of his ventures in antiquities and also know the underlying darkness of those ventures and that he’s truly a spy. Coming from generations of spies, she too desires the same. However, at the ball thrown by Thorndon’s mother, it isn’t Rafe she dances with and soon begins to be very attracted to, but the boorish and reclusive Duke of Thorndon. As the story continues so many amazing and quite humorous things occur between the pair and whilst Mina still tries to be with Rafe and see her dream fulfilled it is Thorndon that soon captures her heart! Will she continue her dream of being a spy and marry Rafe or will she allow her heart to open up to country boy Thorndon and be a simple, yet very happy country miss? Truly a remarkable read and I really fell in love with Drew and Penny and felt the pain they both have suffered in their younger lives, especially Drew. Ms. Bell is truly a phenomenal storyteller, she grabs the reader from the first page and does not let go, with scene after scene we are more drawn into the lives of her amazing characters and I truly can’t wait to see more from this series ahead.
