    I Loved It

    Graham Everly, the Duke of Northfield has been staying out of society and away from his friends for the last few months. He feels he has been betrayed and it hurts. However they will not allow him to wallow any longer and drag him out. Wallflower, Lady Adelaide Longford has been repressed by an over protective guardian. Now she has found an escape as the actress Lydia Ford. This is an emotional, but also fun historical romance. Every one of our characters have more than their share of secrets. Some of those secrets could be deadly. It is part of a series but each book can be read separately. I loved it.

    Loved it

    'The Broken Duke' by Jess Michaels is book Three in "The 1797 Club" series. This is the story of Adelaide Longford and Graham Everly, Duke of Northfield. I have read the other books in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Adelaide is a Wallflower daughter of the former Earl of Longford and with does have a reputation to protect but with the Wallflower status makes it that not one really notices her. So Adelaide is allowed to pretend to be Lydia Ford and actress. Graham was once engaged for 7 years to Margaret, in book two "Her Favorite Duke" Margaret and his best friend the Duke of Crestwood were caught in a compromising position and had to marry. It seems that Graham is taken the mistrust of his 13 year friends ship with Crestwood very hard. When his other friends talk him into going to a theater to see a new actress that everyone is talking about he meets 'Lydia' who he is quickly drawn too. But she turns his attentions down after a hot and sensual kiss. But Graham thinks it might have woken him back up to enter into Society again. But at a ball he freezes of some when the Duke and Duchess of Crestwood come into the ball room. Graham knows he needs to dance or do something to change how he feels and goes to the Wallflower Section of the Ball Room and asked Adelaide to dance. Adelaide does agree and hopes he doesn't notice her but they talk and it sparks Graham to be attracted to her too. How long can Graham go without catching on? Can he withstand another mistrust by someone he has grown to care about? Loved their story! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    Steamy

    The Broken Duke by Jess Michaels is another wonderful Recency Romance. While, #3 in THE 1797 CLUB, it can be read as a stand alone. As with all Ms. Michaels stories she manages to draw her readers into her stories with her characters, her descriptions and her emotional turmoil. The plot flows seamlessly, and is interesting, as well as intriguing. A story of passion, deception, betrayal, angst, murder, abuse, redemption, love and finding a HEA. The H/H are a bit different as the heroine seems to portray two people, a bit confusing at first, but soon the reader totally understands her deception. The hero is vulernable, yet controlled. This was not my favorite of this series, thus far, but an enjoyable read, nevertheless. Something about the H/H was hard for me to connect with, at first. Romance readers who enjoy a bit of mystery, steamy interactions, emotional turmoil and HEA, should enjoy THE BROKEN DUKE. I already anticipate the next book. I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own. Ratinf: 4 Heat rating: Steamy Reviewer: AprilR

    4.5 stars!

    The appeal of a Jess Michaels novel lies in the presentation. Beneath the scandalous lust, the intriguing adventures and the danger that follows in the wake of the main characters, lies a beautifully written work of art. The Broken Duke thrives on staying one step ahead of the readers. Adelaide is a temptress in hiding. A woman caught between two worlds, longing to be noticed and willing to risk all for that chance of notoriety. Her quest brings her to the attention of the one man who could topple her entire masquerade. The heartbreak she never saw coming and the danger she never thought possible, lies in the hands of the greatest love of all. (4.5 stars)
