    Historical Romance

    To the Duke, With Love by Amelia Grey The Rakes of St. James #2 Three young men made a wager… A scandalous wager – at least society said it was. Three young dukes gained the dubious “honor” of being named… …The Rakes of Saint James. Years later Sloane Knox, Duke of Hawksthorn is worried about his sister’s first season…there are rumors that his sister might have to face drama as he and his friends created for twelve young women with their wager. So, his plan is to have Adele betrothed BEFORE her season begins. Little does he know that the Quick family might provide him and his both the perfect matches. From the first meeting of Loretta Quick and Hawk the sparks flew. There was a kiss but Loretta was way too smart to allow more. The book does finally see them together but it takes effort on Hawk’s part to achieve his heart’s desire. Adele and Paxton have a nice side story that may also provide a much tamer HEA at some point in the future. There is another thread in the story of an orphaned street boy that appears at Loretta’s door. Hawk never really trusts him but does keep an eye on him. Loretta wants Farley to have a life and family that is more than he has known but whether or not he will be willing to make changes or even want to do so is left hanging a bit. It might be nice to hear what eventually becomes of him in the future. I enjoyed the story and it was in keeping with the era but it did not overwhelm me or draw me in as some books do. I wondered how realistic Loretta’s situation would have been and how she could be so malleable and obedient to her uncle while also so strong willed when with Hawk. I found Hawk to be an okay guy but kind of wanted to know more about him and his regular life and what he enjoyed doing. All in all it was an okay story and I would like to find out what will happen to the third Rake of St. James when Duke Rathburne’s story is told. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Heartwarming &. Captivating!

    This is the second installment in The Rakes of St. James series by Amelia Grey. The second rake in the series is the Duke of Hawksthorn, “Hawk”. His sister Adele is getting to ready to make her debut this Season. But with the scandal sheet fueling the gossip mongers, about the scandal from his past, he is desperate to have his sister’s betrothal settled before the season starts. So, Hawk sets out to visit Mammoth House and Paxton Quick to arrange a betrothal between him and his sister Adele. But Hawk finds that Paxton is not at home . So he must deal with the unexpected, intriguing, as well as beautiful, Loretta Quick. His immediate attraction to her beauty, and her infuriating, wit and intelligence, makes it hard for him to concentrate on the important issue before him. Loretta Quick is Paxton’s sister, who has been confined to Mammoth House as punishment for refusing to go through with an arranged marriage. And with everything that Loretta has been through, she definitely wants her brother to marry for love . What unfolds is a delightful combination of romance and stolen moments as Hawk tries to change Lorettas’ mind regarding her situation, as well as the feelings they have for each other. I was immediately hooked. Their immediate attraction and sizzling awareness, between these two characters jumps off the page. I loved and admired Loretta. She is such a strong, character. She's honest and not afraid to say what's on her mind. Reformed rake, Hawk, is a swoon worthy hero and easy to fall in love with. His tenacity and determination to get exactly what he wants is sexy and it's easy to understand why Loretta is immediately attracted to him. Loretta and Hawk find that whether they are together or apart, all they can think of is the other, and the more they get to know each other, the more they want each other. I also really enjoyed getting a different side to this era, as we are given a glimpse of some real life issues dealing with poverty and child labor. Amelia Grey really developed complex characters that added dimension to the story. Even the secondary characters were well developed. Their story within the book will definitely tug at your heartstrings. Overall, this was a really heartwarming, sweet read and I can't wait to see what Amelia Grey gives us next. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Pleasant read

    Years ago Loretta made a vow that she will never break. Since that moment she has been isolated, away from friends and society. When Hawk arrives to present an arrangement to her brother she feels the whisper of discontent at what her life has turned out to be. Hawk is instantly taken with Loretta and her forthright attitude and determination to win any argument. Even as he takes steps to solidify his plans for his sister he maneuvers circumstances to his benefit regarding the charming woman who has captured his attention. While parts of this was wordy and full of introspection, the building relationship between the main characters was engaging. They are perfect for each other and yet Loretta cannot yield to Hawk’s desires. There is a couple of secondary storylines that helped to move the book along and the one regarding Farley was heart wrenching. Overall, this was a pleasant read. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press. Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers

    Love it!

    To The Duke, With Love by Amelia Grey is an awesome historical romance. Ms Grey has delivered a well-written book filled with amazing characters. Loretta wants her brother to have a love match marriage, Hawk wants Loretta's brother for an arranged marriage with his sister. Loretta and Hawk's story is a tangle of unfortunate events surrounded by drama, humor, and sizzle. I loved reading this story and look forward to reading more from Amelia Grey soon. To The Duke, With Love is book 2 of The Rakes Of St. James Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
