My Review of “WHAT TO DO WITH A DUKE” by Sally MacKenzie


What To Do With A Duke

by Sally MacKenzie

Kensington Books
Historical Romance
Pub Date Aug 25, 2015


Welcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love…
Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town’s infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart—the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and the only man who’s ever impressed her in the least…

With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can’t help but be stirred by Cat. It’s terribly unfortunate he’s not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir’s birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken—in true fairy-tale fashion—by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin…

My Thoughts:

I love Sally MacKenzie books in general. When I saw this one on Net Galley I couldn’t resist. It did not disappoint. As usual the characters were very engaging and well developed. I love historical romance in general but have found Ms. MacKenzie’s works not only to be good but very funny at times too. If you like your historical romance to not only be engaging but also to make you laugh, I encourage you to read those written by this author. They are well worth your time.

“MacKenzie entices her readers into a funny, romantic tale with her protagonists at cross purposes, sizzling sensuality, a touch of poignancy and a surprise twist. This all adds up to a delightful read.”—RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars, on Loving Lord Ash
“The romance equivalent of chocolate cake…every page is an irresistible delight!”—Lisa Kleypas

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
