Book Review

“A master storyteller.”—Affaire de Coeur
Nearing thirty, the Duke of Rathburne is finally ready to make amends for the wager that caused him and his best friends such scandal—but taking on a ward who needs a husband is a feat he’s not sure he can manage. The last he saw of Miss Marlena Fast, she was a spirited little ruffian, not the sort of bride most bachelors on the marriage mart sought. But one glance at the lovely lady she has become is enough to convince him otherwise…
Orphaned young and shuffled from family to family, Marlena counts on her fierce independence and quick wits to keep herself content. Being the responsibility of a notoriously wicked duke who upended so many lives is an unexpected challenge when she realizes he arouses her decidedly feminine desires. Marlena must be careful. She has her own scandalous secret to protect. If he finds out, will it shatter her chances of a happily-ever-after with the notorious rake?

It's All About the Duke is the next Regency romance in The Rakes of St. James series from Amelia Grey.

I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.

Amelia Grey is a new author to me, so I didn't know what to expect.  What I hadn't realised was this is the third book in the Rakes of St James.  I found you can read this book as a standalone, there was enough of a back story without thinking what had gone on in the previous books.

At some point we've all had a friend were a prank was played on them and for whatever reason you've thought I will get that person back.  For me this is a no, but for Marlena she has done this...but then the tables get turned on her and she very nearly looses the one she loves.

I enjoyed reading this book, its a troupe that I have read before and I will go back and read the first two books.  I did like the humour, which for me is a big plus.  There was one character that got on my nerves that was Justine, for me she was a little over the top.

I will give this book 4/5 stars, this book is on pre-order at Amazon UK and is realised on 29th May.
