Publisher’s Description:

A reclusive duke…
Lord Frederick Bowen, Duke of Salisbury, is expecting an heiress for Christmas. The fact does not bring him pleasure. Ever since the war ended, he would rather focus on experiments for his new waterproof material.

A commoner…
Celia might be the daughter of an earl, but she’s of the illegitimate variety. She has resigned herself to life as a maid for the wicked countess and her two half-sisters.

A Christmas house party…
When Celia’s half-sister begs her to pretend to be her, Celia finds herself in a fairy tale. Everyone knows though that fairy tales never come true…

My Thoughts:

What a delightful read!!

This sixth book in Bianca Blythe’s Matchmaking For Wallflowers Series seems to be a Holiday take on Cinderella. It includes a wicked countess, half sisters(one who asks Celia to pose as her), and a Duke who is her unlikely suitor.
This fairytale like Christmas Romance will engage the reader and keep your attention. I couldn’t put it down once I began reading.

Lord Fredrick Bowen is an unlikely Duke. He much prefers his chemistry experiments to anything society has to offer. He needs to marry to carry on the title so along with his mother he invites Lady Theodosia Fitzroy to his home and to a ball to be held there.

Lady Theodosia has ideas of her own. She is in love with a French Comte and intends to elope to marry him. She asks Celia to take her place and thus ensues our story.

Our basic rags to riches Cinderella tale turns into a wonderfully told regency romp.

I gave this delightful tale 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames. Our tale is mostly a comically sweet one with only one intimate encounter.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author via Bookfunnel to read and review as part of her review team. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:

Born in Texas, Wellesley graduate Bianca Blythe spent four years in England. She bianca-blythe-authorworked in a fifteenth century castle, though sadly that didn’t actually involve spotting dukes and earls strutting about in Hessians.

She credits British weather for forcing her into a library, where she discovered her first Julia Quinn novel. Thank goodness for blustery downpours.

Bianca writes historical romances and mysteries.  She now lives in Massachusetts with her dashing husband.

Rose MacVie sees her life stretching out before her, empty and unchanging; that is, until she decides to make her own destiny. Setting sail alone, she leaves behind her island home and is caught in a sudden tempest.

Tristan Thatcher is a wealthy merchant, sea captain, and contented bachelor, but all that he has worked for is threatened when his father betroths him to the daughter of a ruthless baron. If he refuses the marriage, he and his family stand to lose everything, but marrying a woman he despises is unthinkable. Just when it seems all hope is lost, his Quarter Master proposes a plan, to which Tristan reluctantly agrees. All he needs is a woman willing to take a few risks for a good cause, but where is he going to find such a woman in the middle of the sea?

Publisher’s Description:

Introducing the “Kind Ella and the Charming Duke” Novel – Discover NOW The New Regency Romance Book by Bridget Barton!

Lovely – Romantic – Exciting!

Following the death of her beloved father, Ella Winfield is devastated when her mother, a woman with untamed social aspirations, hastily marries the Earl of Dandridge. He is a humorless man, and one whom Ella does not trust for a moment. Leaving her beloved Longton Manor behind, Ella is cast adrift in the large and unwelcoming Dandridge Hall, despite her desperate plea that her mother need not marry at all.

The Earl’s daughters, Lady Patience and Lady Georgiana, are spoiled and manner less young ladies, used to their own way in all things and fiercely competitive with one another. But when the Duke of Hillington is reported to be searching for a suitable bride, the tension between the sisters reaches new heights. With Ella’s simple beauty, intelligence, and fine manners, the Earl seeks to hide her away from the world and, more importantly, the Duke of Hillington himself.

When he determines that Ella not attend a masquerade ball to which the whole family has been invited, Ella takes it upon herself to attend in disguise and spy on the ambitious little family for her own amusement. When she finds herself in anonymous conversation with the Duke himself, she realizes that there is more to him than a man who would seek nothing more than a pretty bride with a large dowry. He is open and amusing and she finds herself quite captivated.

Rufus Darnley, the Duke of Hillington, cannot shake from his mind the curious and exciting young woman who appeared at his masquerade ball uninvited, and he can no longer find any enthusiasm for his search for a wife with whom he might provide an heir to the Duchy. When he finds the discarded mask of the mysterious woman who left the ball without a word, he holds on to the hope that he might one day discover her true identity.

As the Earl of Dandridge plots the most appalling schemes to keep the Duke interested in his own daughters, Ella Winfield must do what she can to stop the man she is fast becoming attracted to from being steered in the direction of either Lady Patience or Lady Georgiana, all without being discovered by the family who have, one by one, turned their backs upon her.

“Kind Ella and the Charming Duke” is a historical romance novel of approximately 80,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
