A GOOD DUKE IS HARD TO FIND is out June 30! Thank you @netgalley for the advanced copy!
I thought this was a sweet romance with a really great concept. Miss Lenora Hartley has been engaged 3 times and never married. In 1817, this is not a good look. She escapes with her best friend to their favorite place from their childhood where her best friends grandma lives, the Isle of Synne. When they arrive the meet Peter Ashford, an American businessman who is the heir to the land on the Isle but has a bone to pick with the aging duke. Meeting Lenora changes everything for him, and sparks something in Lenora. But will their past get in their way of a future?
It was sorta romantic but Peter Ashford sounds gorgeous! He’s a bit of a tortured soul and more focused on revenge so he wasn’t always super likable. Overall the plot was a little slow for me, it lacked the development I really wanted. The characters felt flat for me. I was hoping for a bit more heat for an enemies to lovers romance! It still was cute and romantic and I had fun reading it!
My six word review:
A Hot duke and scorned lady!
