Witty Regency romance

In 1813, Simon Basset, the duke of Hastings, is prime meat for the mothers of débutantes and is front-page news for the gossipmongers of the ton. Everyone seems to need to read the recurring installments of Simon¿s non-matrimonial life as described by columnist Lady Wh...
In 1813, Simon Basset, the duke of Hastings, is prime meat for the mothers of débutantes and is front-page news for the gossipmongers of the ton. Everyone seems to need to read the recurring installments of Simon¿s non-matrimonial life as described by columnist Lady Whistledown. Rumors abound that the bachelor has selected a fiancee, a veritable nobody named Daphne Bridgerton.

Actually, Simon and Daphne have cut a deal to pretend they will be getting married. He is no longer a candidate for every mother and she has the opportunity of meeting beaus since she has been relegated upward by a duke. Daphne does not want to marry anyone except the love of her life. Simon wants to marry no one. However, neither one accounted for love exploding between them when they first made their agreement.

Very few writers are on a par with witty Julia Quinn (see HOW TO MARRY A MARQUIS) when it comes to a humorous, entertaining Regency romance. The mighty Quinn¿s latest novel, THE DUKE AND I is a jocular tale that will leave sub-genre fans fully satiated yet desiring more works, especially starring Lady Whistledown and her column.

Scenes were too graphic. Not necessary - Otherwise a great story!

I can not recommend this book due to the graphic sex scenes. Ruins the book.
