Publish Date: November 27th 2012
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Genre: Adult, Historical Fiction, Romance
My Rating: 5.0/5.0
The youngest of the Wylder girls—and the last left unwed—Lady Diana is also the most willful, a trait that’s leading her ever closer to dishonorable disaster. While her family’s solution is a fast and excruciatingly respectable marriage, Diana can’t imagine being wed to the very staid and dull Lord Crump. But while wedding plans are being made, a chance meeting at a gala turns Diana’s world upside down.
A kiss from a dazzling stranger gives Diana a most intimate introduction to one of the ton’s most resolute and scandalous bachelors, the Duke of Sheffield. Torn between family duty and her heart’s desire, Diana recklessly surrenders to the headiest of passions, recognizing that she has found a kindred soul in the handsome young duke. Soon it’s clear that seduction is no longer the game: Something deep and lasting has come to bind their hearts, and the stakes are nothing less than true love.
It was actually a fluke that I picked this up from the library. The spine caught my eye just as I was walking out, so I stopped and picked it up. That dress on the cover! So pretty! I want it! The synopsis interested me and the rest is history.
It reminded me of The Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas, and I LOVE Kleypas so I knew that I was going to enjoy this!
When the Duke Found Love is the third in a series, but you don’t need to read the first two to understand this one.
The relationship between Diana and Sheffield was steamy to say the least! There was a spark between them that was obvious from the beginning of the book. They were very witty and enjoyed each other’s company.
Diana was annoying at times, she was very stubborn and assumed things without asking for the details. And even though it was obvious that Sheffield and her should get together, she chose Lord Crump?
Overall, I think Bradford did a brilliant job in creating a characters that worked well together and a storyline that kept me hooked throughout the book! Now, I’m off to enjoy the sun! Sorry for the short review and general suckyness of it!
