I believe that HOW TO LOVE A DUKE IN 10 DAYS is going to be one of the 10 best books I’ve read in 2019! It was truly a different and original storyline that is unique and fresh and to my mind extremely good. Famous and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane, knows how to look out for herself, traveling the world over as a famed archeologist. Nobody but her two closest friends know of the terror that haunts her, and yet, they do NOT know of the blackmailer who has been plaguing her for the last 7 years. What she needs is a wealthy husband!
Traveling to meet up with her two best friends, Lady Cecilia and Lady Francesca (who is about to be married to a man she hates) Alexandra meets up with a dashing man whom she assumes is the stable master after he claims a runaway stallion who Alexa had caught after he broke away from his handler. The man was striking and it was very unusual for Alexa to ever be attracted to a male but there was something about him….
Piers Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne is seeking revenge and his first step is to secure a bride. Winning a ladies hand however, is not easy when that man comes with a reputation as the Terror of Torcliff. When Alexandra enters his life his whole resolve changed, when she proposes marriage, he knows that she possesses dark secrets and like him, haunts her being. Yet, her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens passion and desire within him. Feelings he’s never experienced before.
*** The question is who is trying to kill him, or could it be who is trying to kill her? After a few close calls, one can’t quite figure it out! So many questions as to what is really going on, while passions are simmering and trust is fragile with so many secrets still to be told. Who is the villain and who is the victim? Can two hearts trust the other before betrayal tears them apart? The suspense, sensualness, and romance was divine! Highly recommended!
