Overview

The Duke of Fenwick was a reprobrate.

Which is why it has always been up to Teddy Middleton, the second son, to run the estate and both their lives. But the Duke is full of surprises--the latest one a wedding. For Teddy. To the Duke's best friend's sister, Juliette.

Finding herself in church for her own surprise wedding was unnerving, to be sure. But to avoiding scandal seemed to be the most prudent thing to do, so Juliette said, "I do." She'd make the best of it and hope Teddy wouldn't be harder to take care of than her previous household had been. She simply had no idea how she could manage two estates on her own.

After a disastrous wedding night, Teddy and Juliette don't have very high hopes for a life of wedded bliss. As they forge ahead with resolute chagrin, it begins to dawn on them both that they are allies in the same war for sanity among their crazy relations. Mutual admiration turns to friendship which turns to...something neither one ever expected.

But the Duke has one more surprise for them both--one that will change everything.

Second Son of a Duke is a short story of 14,000 words. It is intended for mature readers due to content.

No flow of thought. Nothing was elaborated, unless they really did fall in love imediately over the laugh lines on his face without talking to eachother.

This was a nice introduction to this author. Would have been great if it had been longer.

Other than the lack of pages it was a great story. Random ending.

The short story had potential - unique plot where the h/h are married in a surprise wedding and only say I do to avoid scandal (plus they had a disastrous wedding night). However, i did not see how they fell in love, the book should have been longer so that their relationship could have really developed. Especially since neither of them really knew one each other, even though their brothers were best friends!? I did think though that the "surprise" ending was different but not necessarily bad, I was content with that. My only issue is I dont see how Teddy and Juliette fell in love! For the price though, i'd still recommend it but only because its under a dollar, plus its an easy read.
