He was only supposed to keep an eye on his friend’s sister . . . now he’s about to lose his heart . . .
When Thomas Heathmore, Duke of Coventry, agrees to steer his friend’s inexperienced younger sister through society, he doesn’t expect the lady in question to be so infernally stubborn. Amelia Matthews seems to have little interest in balls or suitors at all. Instead, she intends to open a school, and against his better instincts, Thomas offers to help. Yet somewhere along the line, Amelia ceases to be a simple responsibility . . . and becomes an undeniable temptation.
Since her brother inherited a dukedom, Amelia’s prospects have transformed. But though she’s long been secretly infatuated with Thomas, she refuses to heed the arrogant aristocrat’s advice. If only it were as easy to ignore his heated touch. And as Amelia soon learns, the ton is a minefield, where one moment’s indiscretion can unleash a scandal—or entice her to surrender everything to the duke of her desire...

Needed a change, and I’m glad I did
Sometimes, a change of genre (well, sub-genre) is all it takes to get me out of a book funk. Maybe book funk is the wrong word, more like book flats. You know where it’s OK but it’s kind of a straight line with no passion to turn the page or desperation to find...

I love the older-brother’s-best-friend trope, so I was quite eager to see how this one went.
Amelia and Thomas are both decent MCs. They both have a bit of a scandalous background and together they form a sort of friendship. I was hoping for a lot of feistiness and banter, but that wasn’t really...

The formula of The Duke of Her Desire was great: brother’s best friend, a heroine who wants to marry for love, a forbidden aspect, and a nefarious plot. However, the execution left a lot to be imagined. Rea...
