What the Duke Wants by Kristin Vayden, Book Review
What the duke wants….
Is not three young ladies for wards.
Nor is the responsibility for finding them a governess.
Thankfully that is delegated to his housekeeper, who he might add is blind as a bat.
That really could be the only excuse she has for hiring Carlotta.
Because Carlotta is far too beautiful to be a governess.
Unable to restrain himself—because restraint is not one of his virtues, his reputation is testament of that fact—he finds the young governess far more spirited, opinionated and tempting than he is able to resist.
And of course, because he’s an idiot. He falls in love.
Never questioning whether she’d be a willing participant.
Of course life isn’t that easy, not even when you’re a bloody duke.
And after one meddling Lady Southridge,
Leads to two fiascos,
Three wards decide to take matters into their own hands.
Because what the duke wants…is simply to fall in love (preferably with the young woman in mind, falling in love too.)
First I have to start off by saying that if I was judging this book based on cover alone, it would be a winner! The story is as much of a winner as wonderful as the cover! The Duke of Clairmont is brooding, strong willed, and devastatingly handsome! Miss Standhope finds herself in a situation she never foresaw, having to become a governess to make ends meet. Neither imagined that sparks would fly and they would fall in love with each other! The Duke sees Carlotta as forbidden and she sees him the same way! The anticipation, the sparks and swoon worthy kisses, this entire book had me flying through the pages to figure out the end result! A wonderful regency romance, What the Duke Wants is a perfect fit for any historical romance fan!
You can pick up your own copy of What the Duke Wants via Amazon.
