What happens at the infamous Vega Club . . .
Sophie Campbell is determined to be mistress of her own fate. Surviving on her skill at cards, she never risks what she can’t afford to lose. Yet when the Duke of Ware proposes a scandalous wager that’s too extravagant to refuse, she can’t resist. If she wins, she’ll get five thousand pounds, enough to secure her independence forever.
Stays at the Vega Club . . .
Jack Lindeville, Duke of Ware, tells himself he’s at the Vega Club merely to save his reckless brother from losing everything, but he knows it’s a lie. He can’t keep his eyes off Sophie, and to get her he breaks his ironclad rule against gambling. If he wins, he wants her—for a week.
A week with Jack could ruin what’s left of Sophie’s reputation. It might even cost her her heart. But when it comes to love, all bets are off . . .

A lovely heroine…
… an accomplished gambler who earns her living that way! I admit I admired her! She knew what she wanted and went to get it in an unusual and inventive way! LOL
The hero was a stick-in-the-a**, but while reading I could understand why he was that way! So, when he falls for the he...

Despite my best efforts to go slow after more than a year of waiting, I gorged myself on this decadent novel and read it in two days. No regrets! In fact, I'll probably be reading it again to catch anything I missed.
My Once and Future Duke is Linden's first novel in a new series. However, it feat...

4.5 stars rounded up.
Caroline Linden writes the most wonderful character-driven romances, and she’s a favourite author of mine. Whenever I want to read something I know will be beautifully and intelligently written, with a gorgeous hero and a heroine I can root for, she’s someone I know I can rel...

Buddy read with Lacey, who luckily enjoyed this more than I did :)
See, the thing is, I LOVE Caroline Linden. She has written some of my favorite historical romances. But lately, I don't know why, books from my favorite authors that I have been eagerly waiting for just don't seem to work...

Don't trust me. I'm an unapologetic Caroline Linden fangirl, as much as I can be a fangirl anyways. Having read all of her historical romances, several multiple times, the pre-ordering of this one was inevitable. Still, I had my qualms going in. Every author is bound to write a story that doesn't...

(2.5 stars) I seem to be swimming against the tide again in my reaction to another new HR release. I thought to try out Linden's new series, even though her previous Scandals books did not appeal to me. But this one goes into the same file as Kleypas' and Campbell's latest novels. It's competentl...

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. Wrestling with the rating so for now it's a 3.0 but could change.
Review to come closer to publication.

I usually really love Caroline Linden's historical romances, but I was quite disappointed by My Once and Future Duke. Let me get to the positive aspects first. I really loved the idea of the heroine being a gambling queen. Sophie is a pro at cards, and is absolutely unapologetic about it. It was...
