The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive… but only one can become a duchess.James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question.
Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong?
She is not like the others…Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is:* Be the perfect English rose [Ha!]* Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure]* Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try]* Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting]When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.
I enjoyed this book so much! From the moment I read the blurb I knew this book would be fun! And I wasn't wrong, the plot was so good and once I started I couldn't put it down! How The Duke Was Won is a refreshing, funny, sweet, fast paced and sexy story!
I loved the plot and how the story developed with Charlene pretending to be her half sister Dorothea! And James doing whatever he could to resist her. But Charlene's personality was so amazing that no one could resist her!
James is irresistible, he made me swoon all the time! He is charming, protective, arrogant and sexy! And Charlene is his perfect match! I loved her characters so much, she was sweet, fierce, sassy, funny and confident! There are some really steamy moments between them that make me melt and swoon! And there is a lot of tension between them that made me love them even more!
I'm super excited for the next book and I can't wait to read it! I highly recommend it to all the historical fans!
