Book Review: Falling for a Duke by Rebecca Connolly, Nichole Van, and Janelle Daniels

Falling for a Duke by Rebecca Connolly, Nichole Van, and Janelle Daniels

Book Description:

From the publisher of the USA TODAY bestselling & #1 Amazon bestselling Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean & Wholesome Romance, comes FALLING FOR A DUKE.

Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Rebecca Connolly, Nichole Van, and Janelle Daniels

ON THE DUKE’S ERRAND by Rebecca Connolly. Lord David Chambers has one goal—to put his father’s Scotland estate to rights. Even if it means leaving in the middle of the London Season and avoiding the matchmakers. As the second son of a duke, David looks forward to facing the wilds of Scotland, and trying to make something of himself and prove his worth to his father. But David’s not prepared for the censure he receives from the local Scottish gentry, especially Ceana Shaw, the baronet’s daughter who not only mistakes him for the duke himself, she seems determined to think the worst of David.

VINGT-ET-UN | TWENTY-ONE by Nichole Van. Eliza Mail had found the perfect place to live out her days as a young widow, away from the pain of her past and lost love. Seemingly by chance, Eliza’s childhood neighbor, Liam Trebor, Duke of Chawton, comes to her village for a visit. Eliza hasn’t seen Liam in over five years, and his presence panics her. Will he reveal what he knows to her friends and neighbors, destroying her current life? Eliza must avoid Liam at all costs, but he seems equally determined to flush her out of hiding. What happens if Eliza’s past does not stay where it belongs . . . in her past?

I KISSED A DUKE by Janelle Daniels. Madeline Maybury will do anything to be invited into the inner circles of the ton. She takes on a challenge from a high society lady to kiss the Duke of Hargrave. When she finds Ethan alone and explains that she needs to kiss him, instead of turning her away, he’s amused. He also obliges. Madeline believes she can report back and achieve all of her ambitions. Instead, she’s given an even greater task. Once she accomplishes it, she realizes that the Duke of Hargrave is a very different man than she expected, and she’s in grave danger of falling in love.

Review:

Falling for a Duke is an entertaining collection of novellas-perfect for when you don't have a lot of time to sit down and read a full-length novel. I can see myself pulling this up again to read when I'm stuck waiting somewhere (and also just for fun at any time I want to read).

On the Duke's Errand is a cute story. I liked Cenna’s spunk (I had a hard time pronouncing her name right-that was a distraction even though the book mentioned a couple of times how to do it-it just wasn’t natural with the spelling so different from the pronunciation).

David and Cenna were great characters. I liked their interactions and their sweet romance.

I think it had one swear word

Vingt-et-Un/Twenty-One was also a very cute story. I enjoyed the flashbacks that told the reader the story of Eliza and Liam, and the surprise that came out near the end about Robert.

It was a sweet story that even though it was short, was well told. The end was funny being told from Mrs Finchley and Mrs Young’s eyes.

I really liked I Kissed a Duke.  It was a fast read that I couldn’t wait to see if things would turn out the way I wanted them to. Madeline and Ethan were perfect for each other. I liked that they brought out good things in each other. The way they met made for a very entertaining story. I liked that they weren’t set on fitting the molds they were born into.
