Much Ado About Dukes

Pub Date- 8/23/22- Out Now!
The passion and intensity of these two proper members of the ton is strong. I am loving how the Duke who admires Lady Beatrice and her activism and all her writings, though he isn’t doing much to help her, is internally wanting to rip her clothes off. He seems to be falling fast whereas she is just trying to lobby his support and teasing him. I can’t wait to see what happens when these two are left alone!! 🥵🔥♥️
Ok so now that I’ve finished this book I can tell you that this turned quickly into a marriage of inconvenience. Since Lady Beatrice wished to be independent and not wed.
Then the agreements of not falling in love which is impossible if there’s such great chemistry between two characters. The depth of pain that Blackheath harbors over his past and punishes those around him. Love that Beatrice tries to get through to him even when he’s blinded by pain and shows him a view point that he couldn’t see.
And the historical steam!! 🔥🔥
❓ What are you reading to start your weekend?
Shakespeare meets Bridgerton in this witty and lively marriage-of-inconvenience romance.
As far as William Easton—the Duke of Blackheath—is concerned, love can go to the devil. Why would a man need passion when he has wealth, a stately home, and work to occupy his mind? But no one warned him that a fiery and frustratingly strong-willed activist like Lady Beatrice Haven could find a way to get under his skin…and that he might enjoy it.
Lady Beatrice is determined to never marry. Ever. She would much rather fight for the rights of women and provoke the darkly handsome Duke of Blackheath, even if he does claim to be forward-thinking. After all, dukes—even gorgeous ones—are the enemy. So why does she feel such enjoyment from their heated exchanges?
But everything changes when Beatrice finds herself suddenly without fortune, a husband, or even a home. Now her future depends on the very man who sets her blood boiling. Because in order to protect his esteemed rival, the Duke of Blackheath has asked for Beatrice’s hand, inviting his once-enemy into his home…and his bed.
