    Historical Romance

    The Daring Duke by Jess Michaels A 1997 Club Novel #1 Ten teens at boarding school form a club to assist one another as they grow into their positions of being dukes one day - The 1997 Club - this series is already plotted out to have ten volumes starring the ten who form the club. In this the first book, we meet James Rylon – once the Earl of Pullman – now the Duke of Abernathe. We find out more about him as we also find out whether or not he will find a HEA and if so, who he will end up with as his duchess. At one of the season’s events Emma Liston is in her usual position maintaining her wallflower and bluestocking status while chatting with Meg Rylon when Meg’s mother shows up in need of assistance. Emma helps Meg with her mother and a friendship between Emma and Meg begins to form. When James, Meg’s brother, comes to check on his mother he meets Emma and then dances with her and he is somewhat intrigued…for a number of reasons…though not the usual reasons he becomes interested in a woman. Emma’s parents are a pain in the patoot. Her mother has one thing on her mind and that is to marry Emma off to guarantee she, the mother, will be secure in the future. Her father is a scoundrel and absentee husband who usually returns home only after having created a scandal. James’s parents are higher born but have been equally if differently problematic. He has his sister and his club mates that stand in place of the brothers his parents did not provide. Neither Emma nor James has any desire to marry but with society and family the way it is they realize that at some point in time they will probably end up with someone whether they want to or not. With Meg wanting Emma around more and more there is plenty of opportunity for James to observe and spend time with Emma. There is time to flirt, communicate, share and be together while both maintain that there is nothing between them…though they make others in the group believe there is. Whether or not James will wise up and realize that a vow made to spite his father still has validity is one question to be answered as is what Emma is willing to do to please her parents and society. Will the two find a HEA, and if so, will it be together? This was a fun read and great introduction to the series. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series in which I do believe that Meg, betrothed to one of the club members, will have to decide whether marriage to that person or perhaps to another is best for all involved. I have never read another book by this author but look forward to reading more of her books in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and Victory Editing-The Passionate Pen. This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Hero love

    very touching story. like how the way how Jess wrote about love growing between two poor souls who are in need of love. Of course my favorite part where James had to save Emma from a bad marriage. What a hero he is.

    Prepare to scandalized and equally surprised.

    Count on Jess Michaels to push through the envelope and get right to the heart of the matter. Wicked entertainment, full of scandal, secrets and romance. The Daring Duke is a fantastic tale of sensuality that stirs the heart while tempting everything else. In an act of desperation, wallflower Emma, seeks out life of the party, James' (Duke of Abernathe) help. What begins as a pact between friends becomes a romance that just may last a lifetime. The Daring Duke is emotionally stunning, and of course this is Jess Michaels, so salacious as well. Prepare to scandalized and equally surprised.
