When a Duchess Says I Do (Rogues to Riches #2) by Grace Burrowes [arc review]

4.5 Stars :)

Best selling author Grace Burrowes has once again delivered a phenomenal historical romance. When a Duchess Says I Do was -as the fabulous author Mary Balogh put it- "Smart, sexy, and oh-so romantic".

Duncan Wentworth tried to help a damsel in distress once and things did not go well, he promised not to do so again. 

Matilda is clever, sweet, and very capable of taking care of herself. But she is in trouble and in need of a 'knight in shinning armor'. She is running away from problems that could destroyed her life and those who discover her secrets. 

When their paths cross Duncan can't resist it. His good and honorable heart takes over. He has to help her.

I absolutely loved their friendship and courtship. Duncan and Matilda were perfect for each other. Duncan's never ending patience and faith on Matilda is praiseworthy and made their slow burn romance all the more touching. It was absolutely adorable how they talked to each other in chess metaphors. Oh-so very geeky... but oh-so very sweet too.

Although this is book two in the Rogues to Riches series it works perfectly as a stand alone. I do encourage you to read My One and Only Duke first though. Towards the end of the book we get a really heartfelt scene between Quinn (book #1) and Duncan and it will be a whole lot more special to you if you've read both books.

All in all if you enjoy Historical Romance this Regency Romance by Grace Burrowes will certainly work for you. It has an interesting background story with just enough suspense and intrigue, fabulously clever main characters, and secondary characters that you will either fall in love with or already have on the previous book and will enjoy seeing again.

Go Read!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
