From the publisher of the USA TODAY bestselling & #1 Amazon bestselling Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean & Wholesome Romance, comes FALLING FOR A DUKE.
Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Rebecca Connolly, Nichole Van, and Janelle Daniels
ON THE DUKE’S ERRAND by Rebecca Connolly. Lord David Chambers has one goal—to put his father’s Scotland estate to rights. Even if it means leaving in the middle of the London Season and avoiding the matchmakers. As the second son of a duke, David looks forward to facing the wilds of Scotland, and trying to make something of himself and prove his worth to his father. But David’s not prepared for the censure he receives from the local Scottish gentry, especially Ceana Shaw, the baronet’s daughter who not only mistakes him for the duke himself, she seems determined to think the worst of David.
VINGT-ET-UN | TWENTY-ONE by Nichole Van. Eliza Mail had found the perfect place to live out her days as a young widow, away from the pain of her past and lost love. Seemingly by chance, Eliza’s childhood neighbor, Liam Trebor, Duke of Chawton, comes to her village for a visit. Eliza hasn’t seen Liam in over five years, and his presence panics her. Will he reveal what he knows to her friends and neighbors, destroying her current life? Eliza must avoid Liam at all costs, but he seems equally determined to flush her out of hiding. What happens if Eliza’s past does not stay where it belongs . . . in her past?
I KISSED A DUKE by Janelle Daniels. Madeline Maybury will do anything to be invited into the inner circles of the ton. She takes on a challenge from a high society lady to kiss the Duke of Hargrave. When she finds Ethan alone and explains that she needs to kiss him, instead of turning her away, he’s amused. He also obliges. Madeline believes she can report back and achieve all of her ambitions. Instead, she’s given an even greater task. Once she accomplishes it, she realizes that the Duke of Hargrave is a very different man than she expected, and she’s in grave danger of falling in love.
My Review: 5 Stars
Wouldn't it have been so romantic to live in Regency England (or Scotland) and to fall in love with a duke? These three swoony stories fulfilled my dreams. I can always count on this line to be sweet and satisfying and this one is a new favorite for sure.
The collection starts off with ON THE DUKE'S ERRAND, and transports the reader to Scotland. I love that the author tells Ceana's name pronunciation in a subtle way right off the bat because I totally would've said it wrong. A case of mistaken identity is always a good way to really get to know a person, as Ceana discovers, especially when that first meeting is a bit shocking. I love the characters and the charming setting that wrapped itself around a fun and entertaining plot.
VINGT-ET-UN | TWENTY-ONE is a heartbreaking story of second chance love. I adored the creativity that went into developing a solid friendship, as the story waffles between the present and the past. I had my prejudices set from the start, but found my thoughts and feelings shifting as the story progressed and captured my heart.
The characters and chemistry in I KISSED A DUKE are purely delightful and I was smiling and swooning throughout. In fact, I almost blushed a time or two, but my adoration of Ethan and Madeline pulled me through. I loved the tasks and reactions that resulted because of these charming characters.
This is a fantastic collection that an Regency romance lover will adore.
Content: mild romance.
