Overview

Mad about the Duke is a rollicking good romp, filled with mischief and mayhem and delicious characters.”
—Sabrina Jeffries

Rita Award-winner, USA Today and New York Times bestseller Elizabeth Boyle delights once more with Mad About the Duke, the second book in her wonderfully creative, wickedly fun Widows of Standon historical romance series. It is a delectable tale of an intrepid young woman who employs an incognito duke—whom she mistakenly believes to be a common solicitor—in her quest to land a titled second husband. Featuring characters from her popular Bachelor Chronicles, Boyle proves once again to be one of today’s most imaginative writers of romantic fiction. Fans of the sensual, fast-paced historical romance of Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd will, likewise, be Mad About the Duke.

The Duchess of Hollindrake orders her three widowed Standon daughter-in-laws to come to her house. One of them, Elinor worries about her sister who needs male protection from their vicious stepfather. When she first sees Mr. St. Maur, Esquire, she knows love at first sight is real, but she needs a duke not a solicitor. James Tremont, Duke of Parkerton, sees Elinor for the first time and knows love at first sight is real. However, when she assumes he is the solicitor her father-in-law sent to her, he fails to correct her misconception. James begins doing things a duke would never do as he helps with the birthing of puppies, crashes a carriage and gambles in the notorious Seven Dials. As he tries to win her heart, not knowing he has it already, he fears how his Widow Standon will react to the truth. The latest Bachelor Chronicles Regency second chance at love romance (see How I met My Countess) is an amusing mistaken identity historical. The story line is fast-paced with a bit of suspense, but it is the relationship between the widow and her "solicitor" that makes for an enjoyable extended Sterling family drama. Harriet Klausner

The plotline of this story is weak and silly. I would pass on this one.
