to review

I have become bad at writing reviews at once when on holiday! So here I go, a few days later; Andrew has been in the army and now he is the heir to a Duke! Sadly an English Duke, boooo, but hey it will give him the chance to better support his mother and sisters. But he must take a wife first. Andrew was nice, just good you know

Ilsa is living life. She is a widow, her husband was an asshat. People thinks she is rather scandalous, and all I say is you go Ilsa! She was great. A thirst for living. Held back by her father, aunt and society.

They meet. She is not proper Duchess material. But Andrew is pulled to her.

There will be drama, I can't tell you, but this is real drama! And it made me mad and I would not be as forgiving as Ilsa. I was glad she had Andrew.

But then the end, what about the next book? New couple! And even more drama regarding something. Ohhh, pretty sure I know who one of them is.

Good narrator. I enjoyed listening to her and I felt she did justice to the voices and accents

Captain Andrew St. James always knew he came from a noble family, but his branch grew far from the wealth and status. Nothing shocks him more than learning that he now stands as heir presumptive to his distant cousin the Duke of Carlyle. There is much for Drew to learn and adjust to - but first he goes home to Edinburgh, to tell his mother and three sisters of their startling good fortune.

Ilsa Ramsay yearns for some adventure and fun, not another husband. When she discovers the handsome soldier who sweeps her off her feet for a rollicking dance is her friend’s brother, soon to be an English duke, she tells herself he’s not for her, no matter how tempting he is. But one impulsive kiss, then another, and another...says otherwise.

Drew means to marry a respectable, dignified Englishwoman - a very proper future duchess. The spirited Ilsa is none of that. Still, when she’s caught in a dangerous scandal, he leaps to her aid without hesitation. And neither family duty nor future obligation can make them ignore what’s in both their hearts.


  1. Ack. At least you're writing reviews! I've been a lazy bum. :(

  2. Hope you're having a nice holiday! Oh, I like the sound of this. Why are women always mistreated and dominated?! I hate it.

  3. REAL drama!! Never marry the proper choice lol

    1. Those are actually really hard so have made an effort to listen more

  6. And I like the cover! Thanks for the review.

  7. Ah, I enjoy a gal who makes the best of life. Sounds like he was there for her when she needed him. Glad it was a good one.

    1. She was having a good time, too bad back then people gossiped

  8. I like this one a lot. Thank you for sharing.

  9. That title makes me think of a Bon Jovi song (and maybe that's partly intentional ha).

  10. Dukes are always worth a review!

  11. DRAMA!
    And That guy is cute ;)
