MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
Last Night with the Duke
The Rakes of St. James
by Amelia Grey
St. Martin’s Press
St. Martin’s Paperbacks
Could finding love be his greatest scandal of all?
The Duke of Griffin has never lived down his reputation as one of the Rakes of St. James. Now rumors are swirling around London that his twin sisters may bear the brunt of his past follies. Hiring a competent chaperone is the only thing Griffin has on his mind–until he meets the lovely and intriguing Miss Esmeralda Swift. In ways he could never have expected, she arouses more than just his curiosity.
Esmeralda Swift considered herself too sensible to ever fall for a scoundrel, but that was before she met the irresistibly seductive Duke of Griffin. His employment offer proves too tempting for her to resist. She can’t afford to be distracted by his devilish charms because the stakes are so high for his sisters’ debut Season. . .unless one of London’s most notorious rakes has had a change of heart and is ready to make Esmeralda his bride in Last Night with the Duke, the first novel in the brand-new Regency Rakes of St. James series by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey.
In this the first of a new series Amelia Grey delights us with a pair of twins making their debut on society, an unruly twelve year old girl and we throw in a Sky Terrier for good measure.
These characters add a delightfully funny nature to this wonderful love story.
Esmeralda once would have been making a debut herself had her mother not fell in love with and married an Irish Poet and consequently been disowned by her brother and the family.
Griffin, The Duke of Griffin is one of a trio of young rakish dukes. His aunt is to help bring his twin sisters out into society but she is ill. Now he needs someone to help him.
I loved this book. I have read several other offerings by this author and have enjoyed them. Amelia Grey does tend to write stories that are remarkably sweet in nature. We find only heated kisses and mild petting through most of the book but it does usually lead to one climactic love scene. This is the case with this book. There are moments of laughter and sadness to balance out the story.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5tars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary Digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I voluntarily reviewed.

REVIEW TO COME!!!
When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?
Daniel Goodenham, Lord North Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to matchmake her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…
This story first appeared in the Vexed anthology.
