It's not what you think. . .

. . . it's so much better! I'll admit, when I first read the title I was thinking that this was a fluffy romance novel. I picked it up because, well, sometimes I'm in the mood for a little fluff. These books (I say books because I read them all in a weekend) are not fluffy romance. It's real romance you'll find here. Alright, The Naked Duke finds himself in a rather compromising position at the beginning of the book, but you need to think past that. Think 'naked' as in exposed, not physically, so much as emotionally. These characters are deep in a London society that, well, just isn't!

In The Naked Duke, an English Duke finds himself completely besotted with an American woman come over from the states. The book is about his attempts at wooing, her reactions to London society, and the tons' reaction to her. In the meantime, both Sarah and the Duke have to dodge his brother who is a truly sick bas-bugger.

Be prepared to be taken by this one. Leave yourself some time to read and be sure to have the next book on hand. I guarantee you'll have to read to the end and still be left wishing there was more!

MacKenzie's main characters have promise at the beginning of the novel, but the number of references to prostitution and the repeated focus on the threat of rape severely interfere with the novel's ability to be enjoyable. With those elements deleted, the plot is ordinary to the extreme.
