Her Duke at Daybreak by Wendy LaCapra - Book Review

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads Bookdepository
Review by Suze

The Duke of Ashbey has a reputation, he has to live with his past and there’s nothing he can do to change it. He isn’t interested in a relationship, thinking he’ll bring bad luck to the woman. Ash leads a solitary life, but that changes when he meets Alicia. She’s a widow with a scandalous family history. She was left with nothing while her husband’s money went to his mistress and the child he had with her. Alicia’s marriage was far from happy and she never wants to get involved with an arrogant member of the ton again.

Ash is heartbroken and recognizes a kindred soul in Alicia. He rescues her from a terrifying situation and doesn’t want to let her go. However, Ash doesn’t get attached, so he comes up with a compromise. He offers Alicia three nights, she will receive the passion she missed in her marriage and will be treated like her husband should have treated her. Will she accept this offer to spend a short, but probably wonderful time with a dangerous and damaged man?

Her Duke at Daybreak is an intriguing romantic story. Both Ash and Alicia have been through a lot. Alicia was treated appallingly by her late husband and he shamed her by withholding her an inheritance. She’s a strong woman though and she can take care of herself. I loved her backbone and willingness to choose happiness, even if it’s just for a few days. Ash needs someone to heal his spirit, he’s a kindhearted man with an awful reputation. I couldn’t wait to find out the truth behind these accusations and read the story in one sitting because I was completely enthralled by his family history.

Wendy LaCapra knows how to write a good romantic story. She’s chosen interesting multilayered main characters that kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. I love it when a story captivates me straight from the beginning. Her Duke at Daybreak is an original regency romance filled with passion, true love, heartache and surprising twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading this beautiful story and highly recommend it.
