A Duke by Any Other Name - Grace Burrowes
With her trademark humor and witty dialogues, bestselling author Grace Burrowes delivers another totally charming Regency romance featuring a duke who excels at brooding in solitude and the lady who refuses to leave him in peace. And right from the start Lady Althea Wentworth devised one very ingenious way to get the reclusive Duke to come knocking on HER door!
Nathaniel, Duke of Rothhaven, lives in seclusion. He refuses every invitation and admits no one through the doorway of his manor! He is only seen (if you make out the blur) galloping his demon-black steed across the moors by moonlight. Most think him the Demon Duke but what is unknown is that Nathaniel is truly a decent man – too decent for his own good. Which is precisely why he must turn away the beguiling woman demanding his help.
Lady Althea Wentworth has little patience for dukes, reclusive or otherwise, only she needs Rothhaven's backing to gain entrance into Polite Society. She's asked nicely, she’s politely called on him and always been turned away. He longs for privacy. Yet as happens, it was she who ended up coming to his aid and discovering his deepest secret. He soon realized that his secret would remain hidden because this lovely and beguiling woman would help him keep it hidden. During the course of friendship it soon becomes clear they might both be pretending that they could overlook a deep attraction between them that couldn’t be hidden from either of them.
I know whenever I pick up a book by the estimable Grace Burrowes I will be entertained, and just so, this wonderfully paced, tome was everything I could have wished for and more! Absolutely brilliant! Loved every minute of it!
