No other Duke will do - Grace Burrowes

Julian St. David, Duke of Haverford, is barely keeping his head above water in a sea of inherited debts. Though he has a long-term plan to restore the family finances, his sister has a much faster solution: host a house party for London's single young ladies and find Julian a wealthy bride.

Elizabeth Windham has no interest in marriage, but a recent scandal has forced her hand. As much as she'd rather be reading Shakespeare than husband-hunting, she has to admit she's impressed by Julian's protective instincts, broad shoulders, and, of course, his vast library.

As the two spend more time together, their attraction is overwhelming, unexpected... and absolutely impossible. With meddling siblings, the threat of financial ruin, and gossips lurking behind every potted palm, will they find true love or true disaster? 

Kindle Edition, 360 p
Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Forever
Windham Brides #3
Historical romance

My thoughts:
I liked Grace Burrowes books because they are sweet and the couples talk, a lot. I like that. These couple actually seem to get to know each other. I can believe them falling in love.

Elizabeth is getting closer to spinsterhood, not that she cares. She loves her books and you can still steal a kiss or two without being married. Elizabeth! I am shocked.

Julian may be a Duke, but he is poor as dirt. The only thing he has is books, so many books, so many many books. Dang those books, they ruined his family.

Booklover meet Duke with books (Duke who hates books.) A lovely house party where he and his sister should find love (and a party they can not afford). 

There is also the villain, every story needs a villain, and I felt sorry for him the entire book. He was such an idiot and thought of ages old revenge. He needed someone to take him under his her wing and tell him how to behave. I also felt he needed to find love and a woman who can get him to see things. Cos he was not a bad guy, he was just without guidance.

I enjoyed this story. I always do



  1. Sounds fun and all those books! Hope he was a little wealthier at the end plus in love!

  2. I've not read her books from Forever yet. I kinda got burnt out on hers from Sourcebooks. Now I'm eager to try these.

  3. It is rather nice to have the duke poor as dirt for once.

    1. Poor guy though, all I can not marry, I need to earn money first

  4. Maybe the villain will show up in his own book?

  5. I love when the relationship feels realistic.

  6. I like the sound of this one very much.

  7. A book lover and a duke with books. Sounds like the start of a splendid affair. :)

  8. I really want to try this author!

  9. Look at that cover!
    And a story of a bookworm always caught my attention. I'll keep this one in mind. Awesome review!

  10. I agree with you on Grace Burrowes. I love how well the characters communicate with each other. Which back then I feel is definitely realistic.

  11. I love romances with characters that love books. I need to read this author.

  12. I like Julian even though he is poor. We can read books together.

  13. Not just a Duke, but a DUKE WITH BOOKS!! Don't they always have huge libraries?! *wink wink*
