Review: The Reluctant Duchess by Roseanna M. White

About the book:
Will Fleeing the Scottish Highlands Only Leave Her in More Danger? 

Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she's never felt good enough--not for her father, not for the man she thought she'd marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she's willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping those threatening her life.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, yet the last thing he needs is the distraction of the newly introduced Lady Rowena. He has enough on his plate having recently come into possession of a rare treasure for which many would kill, yet those around him seem intent on pairing him with this desperate but beguiling girl.

Rowena is reluctant to marry this notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she'll end up in more danger than she fled.

My thoughts:

After reading and loving the first book in this series, The Lost Heiress, I truly don't know why it took me this long to read The Reluctant Duchess. I won't be making that mistake with the last book, as I've already started A Lady Unrivaled. ;)

I absolutely loved The Reluctant Duchess. It was one of those books where I did not want to stop reading and I was just captured by the story. There were some very sad/painful moments, but also ones of joy/happiness. I liked the main characters and their love story was sweet. The way he treated her was amazing.

The ending was great and I'm curious to see how the series will end. I definitely recommend The Reluctant Duchess, but be sure to read The Lost Heiress first as the stories are connected.

    1. It was fantastic! I still need to write my review for the last book, but I loved them all. :))

  2. I love Roseanna’s writing. So much sumptuous detail. She does her research! Just finished A Song Unheard. The second in a series about the start of WWI . Fantastic story! It keeps getting better and better!
