Synopsis:

LOS_DCIn the battle between love and duty, the heart has the most to lose…

Despite his previous irksomeness, Lord Julian Wade has become a dear confidant to Portia Hayes. He’s proven attentive, honorable, clever, and would make many a lady a fine catch. Not herself, alas. Wade has naught but lint in his pockets, and Portia is expected to make an advantageous match. Her recent betrothal to the Duke of Montrose thrills her parents, but as she learns of his unfavorable reputation—and equally untenable behavior—Portia’s happiness is less assured. As is her chance of being loved.

Julian Wade may have lost the battle for Portia’s hand, but her heart has yet to be won. Certainly his old enemy Montrose is unworthy of her affections, and indeed, it seems the dastardly duke is up to his usual unsavory tricks. But Julian has a few tricks of his own, as well as the support of dear friends. Penniless though he may be, should he win Portia’s love once and for all, Julian may yet prove to be the richest gentleman about Town.

My Thoughts:

Despite his previous irksomeness, Lord Julian Wade has become a dear confidant to Portia Hayes. He’s proven attentive, honorable, clever, and would make many a lady a fine catch except his pockets are to let.
Julian is frankly BROKE! He needs an heiress but will not marry Portia simply for her money because with all else said he is in love with her.
Will Portia realize before it’s too late that Julian is the man for her and despite her parent’s insistence that she marry a man with a loftier title that she prefers love over the title of Duchess.
There was one thing that bothered me about this book and that was the Duke being referred to as My Lord instead of His Grace. That being said it is an engrossing title that I finished in one sitting only taking the usual BR or snack breaks.
I gave this mostly sweet (only one heated scene) book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. All of the characters except the Duke of Montrose, are endearing. I look forward to Lavinia getting her own story. It looks like that may be with Sullivan but we can’t be certain of that.

When the author read this in my review (There was one thing that bothered me about this book and that was the Duke being referred to as My Lord instead of His Grace.) she responded: “Fixing that mistake right now. Thanks for the warning.” 

It does help the author sometimes to get an advance review!

Introducing Chills, the first installment of the Distinguished Rogues series. Bestselling regency romance author, Heather Boyd, brings readers a lively tale of reckless spending, fraudulent correspondence, and the humorous twists and turns of falling for the right rogue…

London, 1813

Jack, Marquess of Ettington, is at his wits’ end dealing with his twin sister’s distress. Under her name, he’s summoned Constance Grange, his vexing former ward, to London to act as his sister’s companion for the season. Although Pixie’s debt-ridden state comes as a complete surprise, what disturbs him more is his sister’s plan to find her a wealthy husband to pay off her overwhelming debts. And—despite his availability, wealth and title—he’s shocked to be overlooked for the position of Pixie’s husband.

With a nickname like Pixie, Constance Grange should be used to disasters, but debt collectors pounding on the Marquess of Ettington’s door demanding payment is beyond mortifying. Given the precarious state of her finances and the previously unknown loss of her family estate, her choices are either incarceration in debtors’ prison or turning fortune hunter to secure a wealthy husband. Yet the man who comes to her rescue more times than she cares to think about is unavailable, betrothed, and her former guardian Jack—the cold-hearted marquess.

Must Love Majors by Samantha Grace: Lady Ambrosia Everly promised to select a husband by Christmas, but when Major Rowland ambushes her at her parents’ house party with a claim to the stray dog she rescued, love becomes a battlefield. Soon the lines between enemies and lovers are blurred, and Ambrosia is faced with a tough decision: follow her heart or marry a man of her parents’ choosing.  

A Twelfth Night to Remember by Donna Cummings: Rhys has loved Grace his entire life, but their different stations in life made a future impossible. She eloped with another, but now she has returned—a widow with a young son. Can the magic of the holiday season bring Rhys and Grace together at last?

A Kiss Upon the Wind by Barbara Monajem: Two families feud over a stolen pendant. Will a kiss under the mistletoe spark a love that can end the feud forever?

The Duke She Despised by Alina K. Field: Hiding her true identity, a young vicar’s widow takes a position as housekeeper in a remote Scottish castle at Christmas for a new duke who years ago sabotaged her chance for happiness. She quickly falls for the duke’s charming but not very competent factor, not knowing that he’s hiding something also—he’s the duke she despised!
