    SINCE WHEN?

    Since when do female characters in historical romance not want the romance and frivolity of the Ton? Well this book totally brings that to the table, the main character Katherine wants nothing to do with romance, children or husbands. She's in charge of her own life and wants nothing to upset her delicate balance. I hated that this beautiful character was changed so much by a man who makes her feel like she needs to be different to be what he expects. I did love the ending of this book, it was quite adorable.

    Marvelous

    The Duke's Accidental Wife Dukes of War Book 7 by Erica Ridley ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ FOR THE LOVE OF Historical romance. I love reading Erica's books and I have never been disappointed when I have read any of her books. OMG! I love this series it is one of the best in my opinion! Erica Ridley is one of my favorite authors, her series always include the characters from the other books in the series that's what I love that about her books, she does set the bar high with her books. The Duke's Accidental Wife" definitely is book 7 in the Dukes of War series, but I'm praying it's not the last book in this Spectacular series. Erica Ridley brings us back to where this series starts.circle. This series started with the Duke's sister, Lady Amelia Pembroke and now Erica is telling the Duke's story. Miss Katherine Ross is a independent lady. She enjoys flaunting society's rules and she dislikes the stricture it puts young ladies. But her lifestyle is outrageous and she loves having fun and mixing with the lower class but she doesn't consider them as the Ton does. Katherine actually hides the fact that she spends more time with Aunt than most of the Ton suspects. But the one thing she would agree with is she is not looking for a husband, because he would try to control her and demand she have a heir. There is two things Katherine is very afraid of her aunt and her child dying. Lawrence Pembroke is the Duke of Ravenwood , he takes his duty as the Duke very serious. Because his uncle who raised him and Amelia acted as if he was the Duke and took away all of the Duke's parents things and sold them. Once reaching his majority he put his uncle and tried to reproduce his parents home. Then the war started and all his friends enlisted, but the Duke felt he had a responsibility to his title and the crown not to go but he long to accompany his friends. The Duke has lots of personality problems due to his parents dying while he was young. The Ton thinks the Duke is a cold man but he has always been there for his sister and friends. The Duke of Ravenwood has a secret he is a poet and romantic with a dream to marry for love. This series has everything you would want read, lots of romance. This book can be read as a stand alone, but I am really enjoying this as a series. I was hooked on this book and the series from the first page and each time I read it I can't put it down until I finish the entire book in one sitting. This is a enjoyable read and will be a great choice for your TBR list. I'm so excited about reading the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book. If you believe in the world of romance, then the possibilities are endless and fascinating!

    Historical Romance

    Preconceptions can be misconceptions – and that is just what Katherine Ross “Kate” and Lawrence Pembroke, the Duke of Ravenwood found to be true before the end of the book. Kate was footloose and fancy free living with her great Aunt Havens when at one of her social events she and Ravenwood were caught in an apparently compromising situation. They both had ideas of what their future would be and that future did not include what they were suddenly faced with. As the two of them get to know one another better they find that what they believed true of one another is not quite accurate and worth reconsidering. I loved the way Kate began to see beyond the exterior Ravenwood presented to the world. I enjoyed Ravenwood’s slow opening up and sharing as time went on. This is a story of family, caring, sharing and giving and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 4.5 Stars

    The Duke's Accidental Wife

    Erica Ridley’s The Duke’s Accidental Wife is the seventh and final book in her Dukes of War series. Four left for war. One stayed home. The battle is just beginning… Lawrence Pembrook, Duke of Ravenwood, dislikes crowds. What an understatement – he despises crowds. A fact that has him rarely attending ton functions and when he does he avoids interacting with anyone as much as possible. A trait that has earned him the nickname “Frost King” by one beautiful hoyden. He’s a man very aware of his responsibilities and takes his duties very seriously but his greatest desire is to be treated as a man, not a title. Miss Katherine (Kate) Ross is dreadfully afraid of marriage. Marriage equates to the loss of freedom plus her knowledge that she and her babe could die during childbirth have fueled her desire to remain a spinster. A state she has worked hard to accomplish. Being unwed has allowed her freedom to open her beloved antiquities museum and associate with members of the arts and theatre crowd. Ambushed by his sister, the wife of a dear friend and the one woman he cannot abide, Miss Katherine Ross, Ravenwood reluctantly agrees to appear at a charity art function/soiree to be hosted at Kate’s museum. He knows his appearance will attract a large crowd thereby ensuring large donations for the charity. The event is indeed a huge success. Feeling the need to find a little peace away from the crowd, Ravenwood retreats into the inner part of the museum. Having Ravenwood ignore her after making eye contact has piqued Kate’s ire. Being ignored by the “Frost King” at her own event just will not do and she goes in search of him. Finding him at the entrance to her storeroom a battle of words ensues. Thinking she has the last word she invites him “into her lair” – knowing he will not follow. Ravenwood startles her twice – first when he does follow her into the small space and again when he speaks then and reaches to help her retrieve a wooden box on a high shelf. This attempt to help her sets off a series of events that will alter both their lives. An addled aunt, secrets and fears, duty and passion, and of all things a puppy help bring life to Ravenwood’s world. Secrets and fears, passion and compassion and most of all the desire to prove her worth are what drive Kate. They each take little steps to opening up to the other but it takes a near disaster to hit home what means the most to them. I adore Kate’s enthusiasm in everything she does and her ability to go with the flow, even when things don’t go the way she thinks they should. I loved seeing the ever stoic Ravenwood have a flaw, one that basically controlled his life. My intentions were to read The Duke’s Accidental Wife over a two night period; however, Ms. Ridley’s writing draws you into a story and engages your emotions – it was read in one night. I found myself wanting to knock sense into both characters while enjoying every minute of their interactions. My only complaint – this book was not as angst ridden as the previous books in the series; therefore, it seemed to have a slower pace. Overall, it was still an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
