About the Book
Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Rebecca Connolly, Nichole Van, and Janelle Daniels
ON THE DUKE’S ERRAND by Rebecca Connolly. Lord David Chambers has one goal—to put his father’s Scotland estate to rights. Even if it means leaving in the middle of the London Season and avoiding the matchmakers. As the second son of a duke, David looks forward to facing the wilds of Scotland, and trying to make something of himself and prove his worth to his father. But David’s not prepared for the censure he receives from the local Scottish gentry, especially Ceana Shaw, the baronet’s daughter who not only mistakes him for the duke himself, she seems determined to think the worst of David.
VINGT-ET-UN | TWENTY-ONE by Nichole Van. Eliza Mail had found the perfect place to live out her days as a young widow, away from the pain of her past and lost love. Seemingly by chance, Eliza’s childhood neighbor, Liam Trebor, Duke of Chawton, comes to her village for a visit. Eliza hasn’t seen Liam in over five years, and his presence panics her. Will he reveal what he knows to her friends and neighbors, destroying her current life? Eliza must avoid Liam at all costs, but he seems equally determined to flush her out of hiding. What happens if Eliza’s past does not stay where it belongs . . . in her past?
I KISSED A DUKE by Janelle Daniels. Madeline Maybury will do anything to be invited into the inner circles of the ton. She takes on a challenge from a high society lady to kiss the Duke of Hargrave. When she finds Ethan alone and explains that she needs to kiss him, instead of turning her away, he’s amused. He also obliges. Madeline believes she can report back and achieve all of her ambitions. Instead, she’s given an even greater task. Once she accomplishes it, she realizes that the Duke of Hargrave is a very different man than she expected, and she’s in grave danger of falling in love.
In My Opinion (Review)
I love the Regency period. There is just something about all of the pomp and circumstance of the era. Although, if I lived during that time, I’m pretty sure I would have lived below stairs. That’s probably part of the fun of immersing myself in the aristocracy’s lives.
Falling for a Duke includes three novellas that focus on those in the very upper levels of the ton. They’re not all what you might think they’d be either. One hero isn’t even a duke! But that’s what makes that story original and delightful. Another involves childhood friends who are separated by misunderstandings and a meddling family member. And the third one takes place because of a dare.
Each of these is different enough I didn’t feel like I was reading the same story three times. There were things I loved with each of them—the humor in the first, the friendship in the second, and the surprise in the third. It’s a collection worth immersing yourself in.
