Synopsis:

Can a gentle hand tame the savage beast?

After a fateful meeting in Hyde Park, Violet fears she’s lost her heart to a man rumored to have disappeared. But now that he’s returned, whispers amongst Society hint that he’s grossly disfigured and fit for Bedlam. The papers have dubbed Weirick Andrews the Undesirable Duke, but Violet refuses to forget him until she sees for herself the man he’s become. As destiny would have it, she is one of the few debutantes invited to Selbourne Castle to be considered for the role of Lady Andrews, the future Duchess of Selbourne.

A scarred traveling prizefighter, Weirick, the new Duke of Selbourne, intends to leave England, and all the clinging baggage it represents, behind by staging his own death. But before he can, Weirick must see his brother married and settled. And not just any bride will do. Only a few are invited to Selbourne Castle for his brother to choose from, wallflowers all…except one. She’s haunted his dreams for five years, but Weirick never thought he’d set eyes on Violet Everly again.

He will not see her wed to his brother…but keeping her for himself would mean embracing a destiny he’s run from all his life.

This one had a bit of a different flair to it and it made sense given it’s the pinnacle book  in the series. With only one book  to go in this series and a lot happening over the course of the series. Quince need to draw a wild card and deliver something that would seriously make any reader sit up and take notice.

This book definitely did. Granted it was return to  beginnings  in some ways in the form of Violet, Heather’s sister and her mysterious man who after one brief encounter , fell head first in love with him.

It’s been a number of years and this book takes place at party which has plenty of scandals, secrets and more.  Like any good party does in this time of day. There is never a dull moment, the story keeps moving as these two try to figure out their second chance if you want to call it that. As they don’t know much about each other yet there one thing clear, there is love.  Though Violet is more forth coming on that note.

Violet could fit in easily with the rest of the heroines we met so far. She determined, not afraid and always ready.  She need to be the bigger person in this story as her target Weirick was a complicated man , guilted  by his past and demons that surrounded him.

It was a family affair, and I loved the comradeship between the characters as the story went down this twisted path that had plenty of heart break and swoon. I couldn’t  complain there was anything wrong with the story. I just wanted some of the side characters stories after finishing the book. Especially Bernie and her sisters considering their history with the characters  and their roles in the story.   They added a entertainment factor that was need given the tension in the room. This party was one not to forget and hopefully we see these characters again as  surely  the sisters and Warick’s brother need  a book considering how they helped so well.  It’s charming book and An Undesirable Duke is everything you hope in a historical and more

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties. After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance. Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content.
