My Scandalous Duke - Theresa Romain

Lady Eleanor Palmer, a practical young widow, wants a family of her own. Her first marriage was an adventurous disaster, so this time, nothing but the most proper sort of man will do. Absolutely not who she’s looking for? The impulsive, roguish Duke of Hampshire…even though she has secretly loved him as long as she can remember.

Nicholas Langford, the Duke of Hampshire, has always relied on Eleanor’s humor and good sense. Who else would guide him through a scandal with laughter and grace? He would do anything to ensure his old friend’s happiness—even help Eleanor find a suitable new husband.

As Eleanor makes plans for a new life without him at its center, Nicholas realizes the depth of his own feelings. But he can offer Eleanor nothing she thinks she wants. How can he convince her he is everything she truly desires? 

My thoughts:
This was a nice, short novella.

We have a widow who wants to marry again, just not some proper boring guy.
Then we have a Duke, who should marry, but those debutantes are pretty boring.

These two are friends and hit the marriage mart together.

Sparks start to fly and they live happily ever after.

I enjoyed it.

  7. So, covers for these books are often kind of hokey, but I actually really like the one here. So sweet :)
