‘Lady Vivian Defies a Duke’ by Samantha Grace

lvdad sgSTORY: The Naked Truth

Lady Vivian Worth knows perfectly well how to behave like a lady. But observing proper manners when there’s no one around to impress is just silly. Why shouldn’t she strip down to her chemise for a swim? When her betrothed arrives to finally meet her, Vivi will act every inch the lady—demure, polite, compliant. Everything her brother has promised the man. But until then, she’s going to enjoy her freedom…

A Revealing Discovery

Luke Forest, the newly named Duke of Foxhaven, wants nothing to do with his inheritance—or the bride that comes with it. He wants adventure and excitement, like the enchanting water nymph he’s just stumbled across. When he discovers the skinny-dipping minx is his intended, he reconsiders his plan to find Lady Vivian another husband. Because the idea of this vivacious woman in the arms of another man might be enough to drive him insane—or to the altar

REVIEW: Samantha Grace’s Beau Monde Bachelor’s series ends with Vivian and Luke’s story.

Lady Vivian Worth is an adventures young woman who is prone to trouble and her brother thinks the best way to curb her wild nature would be to wed her, so with that in mind he’s in the midst of negotiations with the Duke of Foxhaven to marry her off to his son.

Lucas Forest had just become Duke of Foxhaven, and it looks like his late father was in the midst of acquiring him a bride. This is not something he desires, so he sets off to see if he could break off the negotiations. And then, faith intervenes ….

I really liked both characters. They were complex and interesting as well as entertaining.

Vivian knows exactly who she is and how she “should” act, yet her soul is just so filled with curiosity and a need for letting go of the constraints that the society puts on women. Her innocence was refreshing, contagious and entertaining.

Luke would rather he be a world traveler than the Duke so he has high hopes that he might do both if he breaks of the upcoming betrothal. However, upon meeting Vivian, he starts rethinking that plan.

I must say, I loved this four book series very much and if you haven’t read it yet, please give it a go.

The stories are very fast-moving, entertaining and fun to read.
