The Best Book of the Series

I enjoyed this book a great deal. I picked up Blame it on Bath without much in the way of expectations (I was kind of disappointed with Linden's last series). I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Each book focuses on a different brother; this was Charlie's book. In the other books, Charlie is described as a wastrel, but there is something clearly broken about Charlie--from the very beginning he comes off as a mystery. In this book the mystery that is Charlie is cleared up. He meets and falls in love with a spinsterish woman who also is more than she appears to be to the eye. They make a great match, and the ending of the book is one of the most romantic I've read in a long, long time. I heartily recommend it. If you like books of the sort written by Judith James and Joanna Bourne, you will like this series.

I've up to chapter 11 and just can't read anymore of it. Tessa is sharp shrewish and totally nasty to poor Charlie. So he becomes more enamored of her by the moment. I know he has low self esteem but I wish he had caught a break and fell in love with someone who actually liked him. I know Tessa will come around eventually but to tell you the truth I don't care. Tessa runs her brothers business because he is apparently stupid so she has a superiority complex. I wish I could have hung on there because I would have liked to find out who is blackmailing the duke's family. Maybe I'll just peak ahead. Since at any rate this self absorbed--know it all heroine have ruined this book for me.

    HE WAY TO A DUKE'S HEART by Caroline Linden is an exciting Regen

    HE WAY TO A DUKE'S HEART by Caroline Linden is an exciting Regency historical romance. Book #4 of "The Truth About The Duke",but can be read as a stand alone. See, "I Love the Earl","Blame It on Bath", and "One Night In London". Another great story by this author. The eldest Durham brother, Charles de Lacey, Lord Gresham, is about to meet his match,in Tessa Neville. While, looking for the blackmailer who holds the secret to his scandalous father's past, he finds intrigue,secrets,passion,acceptance, the truth of his father's deathbed confession and love. A Fast paced,action packed,passion filled tale of a father's love for his children, his secret that could destroy them all, and the love of a lifetime. A great conclusion to the Durham brother's troubles. The truth will set them all free....If you enjoy romance,deception,Regency historical, and the story of four siblings whose father leave a deathbed confession you will enjoy "The Truth About The Duke" series. Ms. Linden pulls the reader into the story and hold them captivated with her engaging characters and interesting plots. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Above The Treeline. Details can be found at the author's website,Avon Books,an imprint of Harper Collins Publishing,and My Book Addiction and More.

    My review for this one and Blame it on Bath somehow got mixed up

    My review for this one and Blame it on Bath somehow got mixed up. This book is about the Duke and the final chapter of the de Lacey brothers. Not my favorite. But let me tell you about Blame it on Bath. Gerard de Lacey's story is my favorite so this high rating is for that book and not for the Duke's book.
