STORY: Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he’s infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea’s mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?
As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn’t expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?
REVIEW: Grace Burrowes does it again!
Every time I pick up one of her books, i just know that she’ll give me hours of enjoyment with her warm, complex, sensitive and utterly mesmerizing array of characters.
She never fails to draw me in and have me immersed within these stories she weaves!
In ‘ The Duke’s Disaster’ she gives me a hero among heroes. Noah, Duke of Anselm is a man who knows who he is and what he wants, but also, he was a practical man. A man who loved his family and took his responsibility for them seriously.
Thea Collins is smart, likeable, loyal and self admitted spinster. She also knows and accepts who she is. She has no grand ambitions and is happy to offer her companion services to the ton’s elite. She also is loves her family and would sacrifice a lot for them.
When Noah’s plans to marry her charge go awry, he approaches Thea with a marriage proposal and that’s actually where this wonderful story opens up. I just loved the way he tries to sell himself to her!
If you love marriage of convenience stories, you’ll love this one. I enjoyed the way these two interacted with each other and how they slowly fall in love with each other.
Another keeper shelf worthy book from Grace Burrowes!
