    Great start to a new series!

    A new series? Yes, please! A new series by Sabrina Jeffries? Yes, yes please! An enemies to lovers historical romance? Yes, please! This is one of my favourite tropes. Project Duchess is the first in the new series Duke Dynasty by Sabrina Jeffries. This series is about the children of an oft-widow's grown children, three of which are now Dukes. Fletcher Pryde, the Duke of Greycourt, gets news that his mother's latest husband has died. He hasn't been close to his family in many years, since he was sent to live with his greedy Aunt & Uncle back in England. He wants to be there for his mother even though their relationship is strained. His half-brother believes that his recently deceased father didn't die by accident and enlists Fletcher, "Grey", in helping him discover if it was indeed foul play. Beatrice Wolfe, niece to Grey's recently deceased step-father, lives in the Dower House with her brother who has not been the same since his return from the war. She is used to dealing with death and helps her aunt in arranging the funeral of her uncle. Her aunt has taken her under her wing and is preparing her for her debut in London. Beatrice is keeping secrets though and the more time she spends with Grey, the more the secrets get harder to keep. I've been a fan of Sabrina Jeffries for a while and really liked this new series. I can't wait to learn more about all of Grey's siblings and their fathers...most importantly...was it foul play?? I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

    Love this book!

    OMG this story was such fun! What a great background! Lydia Fletcher has been wed three times, each time to a Duke. She has given birth to 5 children in total (3 dukes, a spare and a daughter). This book is her first son's story, Fletcher "Grey" Pryde, the 5th Duke of Greycourt. Grey has spent much of his life resenting his mother and stepfathers because he was forced to live with an uncle after his father's death. His family didn't realize that Grey was being treated poorly. Now, years later, Grey has proven to everyone that he has become a successful Duke, yet has no interest in taking a wife. When Grey's second stepfather passes away unexpectedly, Grey shows up at his mother's side. Imagine Grey's surprise when he meets Beatrice Wolfe, the young woman who is organizing his stepfather's funeral and they end up having a fun, entertaining meeting and Grey is instantly smitten. Bea has had a hard upbringing especially after losing both of her parents and having to live with her Uncle Armie while her brother was in the service. Now that her uncle is dead, Beatrice isn't sure what is going to happen to her. Grey's mother would like to help Bea, along with her daughter, Gwen have their coming out and she thinks it would be wonderful if Grey could help. As Grey and Bea spend more time together the attraction starts to grow until they both realize that they may have found something that neither of them was ever looking for. Of course things from the past always have a way of causing trouble and delaying these two from finally getting their happy ending but eventually do. I just adored Bea. She has a heart of gold and a mouth like a sailor! She has a tendency to tell it like is and that is what drew Grey to her. Grey is tall, dark hair, beautiful cerulean blue eyes and he sounds completely delicious! The chemistry between these two was so much fun! I loved this story and can't wait for more books in this new series!

    Dukes Galore

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Project Duchess by Sabrina Jeffries is the first book in what looks to be a tempting new series the Duke Dynasty series. Fletcher “Grey” Pryde the 5th Duke of Greycourt has a very interesting family, his mother married 3 times each time to a duke and so he has 2 half brothers also dukes. The sudden death of his stepfather brings him to the estate of his youngest brother and there he meets Beatrice Wolfe the cousin of his younger siblings. Grey prides himself on his lack of emotion but Beatrice is going to knock down all his walls and along the way there is mystery, intrigue and a murder or two to solve. I very much enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the rest of the series. Medium Steam Publishing Date June 25, 2019 #KensingtonBooks #NetGalley #ProjectDuchess #SabrinaJeffries

    Absolutely loved everything about this!

    Beatrice Wolfe has too much experience organizing funerals. When she is called upon to help her Aunt Lydia after the death of her husband, she does so without hesitation. But when Fletcher Pryde, the Duke of Greycourt arrives, and not knowing who he is, she doesn’t hesitate to speak her mind regarding his rudeness. Just looking at him, she knows exactly what a man of his ilk are like and she wants nothing to do with him. Grey is instantly taken with the woman who gives him her blunt rebuttals to his inquisition. When his brother shares concern that the woman’s brother may have been involved in a murder, he offers to spend time with her to learn what he can. Soon, he’s battling a mixture of emotions that offer him no peace except to claim Beatrice as his own. Poor Grey. He had an awful childhood that left him untrusting of people in general. Trying to fit in with his half-siblings, he struggles with old wounds even as he hungers for Beatrice and the satisfaction that her presence brings to him. I loved that he adored Beatrice for her hoyden ways and her straight forward honesty. The very thing that would keep her from finding a suitable husband, and the things his mother’s project would fix, were the things that drew him to her. Sigh. Exactly what I look for in a historical romance. ”She was perfect for him in every way. And all she asked was that he let her look inside his very soul. He should let her. It meant nothing, right? It meant everything. It meant sharing his secrets with her, taking hers on faith, trusting her to hold his heart in her hands and not crush it, the way everyone else had. Because apparently he did have a heart if he were to judge from the searing pain in his chest.” Beatrice was amazing. She was so kind and caring, always ready to help at a moment’s notice. With the weight of the her and her brother’s world on her shoulders, she’s fighting to do what needs to be done to assure they are not cast aside and found homeless. But as suspicions of murder arise, she can’t help but worry that they are true. She was a strong heroine, determined to solve her problems in the best way society would allow. Her ability to speak her mind to Grey and stand up to him made me like her even more. This has a lot of steam for a regency, but I LOVED it! If I want to read a flat historical romance, I’ll pull out one of my momma’s old books. Instead, this is what I want. A romance with suspense, mystery and intrigue all laced with sizzling passion. With enough uncertainty and drama to keep the story moving and a pace that matches it, I found myself reading this within an afternoon. I couldn’t stop. Project Duchess sets up this series as we meet the characters that I assume will have their own books. There isn’t a one of them I don’t want to know more about. With the possibility for danger and mayhem as this series progresses, I’m eagerly awaiting the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Kensington Books. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    First book in a new series.

    A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher “Grey” Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth, and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. Grey’s focus on expanding his dukedom allows him little time to find a wife. But when his mother is widowed yet again and he meets the charmingly unconventional woman managing his stepfather’s funeral, he’s shocked to discover how much they have in common. Beatrice Wolfe gave up on romance long ago, and the arrogant Duke of Greycourt with his rakish reputation isn’t exactly changing her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest “project”: schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut. This first book in this new series by a long time favorite author had me a bit confused in the beginning. I was uncertain how all of these brothers obtained the title of Duke. It took a while for me to realize that each had a different father who had been Duke before them and that they were half brothers with the same mother who married several different Dukes. That being said I am ready for this new series to take off, so let's get to the next one post haste. The characters in book #1 are engaging. Being introduced in this book to all of these siblings we hope to get each brother's story in succession. After figuring out how so many Dukes could exist in one family the story flowed. This first book in this new series gets 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline, plot and characterization. I received a complimentary copy of this title to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
