It's All About the Duke by Amelia Grey - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Rath has said yes to a request under the influence of too much alcohol. He will now be a young lady's ward. Marlena is an orphan and her previous guardian is gravely ill, so he can't prepare her for the season. Rath is a Duke with a reputation, but even though he's a rake he wants to make this task a success. Because of a scandal he caused years ago he's still the main target of plenty of gossip. Rath wants to do something good for a change and takes his duty to find a suitable husband for Marlena seriously. However, when he meets her he doesn't know if he wants another man to marry his ward. Rath isn't the marrying type, but will Marlena change his mind?

Marlena is a girl with secrets. Many young girls would dream of having a Duke as their guardian, but Marlena has to be careful when she's around Rath. There's something she doesn't want him to know. Rath should never discover what she's keeping from him, Marlena thinks she won't be able to handle the consequences. While sparks fly between them she knows she's getting in trouble. She desperately wants to be with the one man she shouldn't desire, but it's impossible to stop herself from falling for the gorgeous Duke. What should she do?

It's All About the Duke is a wonderful charming story. I was immediately intrigued by Rath. He might have his flaws, but deep down he's a real gentleman with a good heart. Marlena challenges him and that's exactly what he needs. She is an amazing woman, she's smart, talented and resilient. She's also a fabulous friend and her generosity knows no bounds. I love a good story about secrets and was fascinated by what she's keeping from the Duke from the beginning. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen between them and read the book in one sitting to find out if they'd get their happily ever after.

Amelia Grey has a mesmerizing descriptive writing style. I love how she makes her stories come to life. She laces them with energy, humor and entertainment. Her books are a true joy to read. It's All About the Duke is fascinating, enchanting and romantic. I loved the main characters and enjoyed every single page of their story. I like it when I'm so engrossed in a book that I don't want to put it down until I've read the last sentence. Amelia Grey has written another true gem, I absolutely love The Rakes of St. James series and highly recommend all of the books.

Advice

If you like regency romance you don't want to miss It's All About the Duke. Each The Rakes of St. James story can be read a standalone, but I'd advise you to read them all.
