To review

You can never go wrong with a Duke.

Cassandra was, omg, opinionated, spine of steel, did not let anyone bring her down. She stood up for women, the poor, anyone who needed help. And thanks to that she was called The Gorgon, and no one ever looked twice at her.

The Duke of Ashmont, omg, what a rakish asshat he was. He and his friends were called The DisGraces. They drank too much, partied too hard, had too many pranks. Most were sick and tired of them. I know these books have many rakes, but it was more than being a rake. He was infuriatingly ill behaved.

Book 1 was his fiance running away with his bestie. It also felt like I had missed a book, but it seems that book will be about the already married third Duke.

The Duke comes across Cassandra, and it is not pretty. He really is a lost cause that needs a big kick in the behind. But it leads to things, and I liked how it made him try to be better. To stop being such a teen to be honest. To grow up. And he falls so hard, and she could not give a f.

I really enjoyed this one. Fun ride!

Kate is a great narrator. She gives emotion and depth to characters, distinct voices and her male and female voices blends well together.

Cassandra Pomfret holds strong opinions she isn’t shy about voicing. But her extremely plain speaking has caused an uproar, and her exasperated father, hoping a husband will rein her in, has ruled that her beloved sister can’t marry until Cassandra does.

Now, thanks to a certain wild-living nobleman, the last shreds of Cassandra’s reputation are about to disintegrate, taking her sister’s future and her family’s good name along with them.

The Duke of Ashmont’s looks make women swoon. His character flaws are beyond counting. He’s lost a perfectly good bride through his own carelessness. He nearly killed one of his two best friends. Still, troublemaker that he is, he knows that damaging a lady’s good name isn’t sporting.

The only way to right the wrong is to marry her…and hope she doesn’t smother him in his sleep on their wedding night.


  1. I do so love a strong woman who's not afraid to take a stand in a romance novel! Hugs, RO

    1. Yay for her doing historical romance, haha

  3. Sounds like she is the woman to get him to grow up!

  4. The Duke of Ashmont and his friends sound awful.

  5. Glad to hear you were able to forgive the idiot and his ways enough to like the story! :)

  6. Oh it looks good and it's not an author I've tried yet

  7. Haha. I wonder, did groups of men really have nicknames like they do in fiction books? I do enjoy Kate Reading.
