Descended from witches burned at the stake, Lady Emilia Noble knows all too well how society persecutes the different. She trusts no one but her own siblings, never daring to reveal to anyone outside the family that she, like her grandmother before her, can read a person's emotions through the changing colors of their aura. When her brother's foolhardy boast that he can predict the future entangles him with the unscrupulous Lord Abernathy, Emilia is faced with a new threat: the ruination of the family's finances and the unmasking of their secret past.

Until Emilia meets Felix Huntar, the Duke of Kintore. For years, Felix has watched as his immoral uncle, Lord Abernathy, has cast shame upon their family through his dishonest machinations. Determined that Abernathy won't hurt anyone else, he vows to help Emilia resolve her family's debts. He's been drawn to her since the moment he met her, and slowly, she begins to trust him too. But when Abernathy threatens to reveal the Noble family's supernatural gifts, Emilia's worst nightmare becomes a very real reality.

Can Felix and Emilia's love triumph over the forces of evil, or are they fated to be perpetually alone?

When love is mixed with magic, anything can happen.

Gifts can often be curses if the circumstances are right. But with Emilia and her sisters, they have special gifts that have been passed down by their ancestors with the ability to read a person's auras, emotions and the future. The problem begins when their brother, brags he can predict the outcome of a horse race. Unfortunately he is with the blackguard Lord Abernathy and his wagering puts the family at risk. Of course the sisters step in and try to clean up the mess their brother made. But as fate might have it, Felix, Duke of Kintore, Abernathy's nephew, comes in just as his uncle is about to hit the young man with him. As Emilia and Felix meet, a lot begins to happen. With a little of everything, I loved this story and it kept me captive until the end! You do not want to miss this tale or any of Christina's books!! Although part of a series, this can be read as a standalone. Lori Dykes

Fate brought them together with a little help. The moment they met they were drawn to each other and had no idea what was in store for them. I loved that they are a bit opposite in some things, especially in intense situations. I was surprised in the end with how he fixed things and that note has me excited for her siblings. Emilia always puts her siblings first and will do anything to protect them. I loved how she wasn’t afraid and didn’t back down. She still had much to learn about her gift, but she let fate lead her without knowing it. Felix has taken care of his uncle for years and nothing seems to shock him anymore. I loved that he always seemed to be calm and able to understand anything thrown at him. He knew what he had to do for himself and her family. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review

This is a very new storyline for Ms. McKnight and I really enjoyed it. Close knit siblings who share special gifts, fate, love, a wonderful plot and writing that was descriptive and interesting kept me turning the pages to see how it would all end. While this is Emilia's story, there are many more stories to be written about the other siblings. I look forward to reading each of them!

Fated For The Duke is a fabulous historical romance with a twist of paranormal by Christina McKnight. Ms. McKnight has provided readers with a well-written book that's hard to put down once you start it. You've been warned. Emilia and two of her siblings are gifted with the gift of sight, empathy and the gift to read another's energy force. They must keep their abilities hidden. Felix, Duke of Kintore, hunts down his uncle and finds him just as he puts a fist in the face of the young man with him. Emilia and Felix's story is packed with drama, humor, action, spice and troublesome family members. I enjoyed reading Fated For The Duke and look forward to my next book by Christina McKnight. Fated For The Duke is book 13 in the Enduring Legacy Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Another Great by Christina McKnight! Fated For The Duke is book 13 in the Enduring Legacy Collection. Each book in this collection is written by a different author but can be read as a standalone. This regency story has some paranormal in it as well and Christina’s imagination is truly amazing. Oh how I enjoyed reading this story. Her characters are lovable and the enemy you hate. What more could you ask for in a book. This story has evil, drunkenness, gambling, patients, obligations to family, sisterly love, secrets, understanding, loneliness, kindness, rescue, protection and love at first sight. Who could ask for more. I highly recommend you read this story or any of Christina McKnight’s books… They are just wonderful! ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

It was almost instant love for Emilia and Felix. I loved watching them come to realize it. I give props to Moire for being able to keep a secret! I do wish Ian didn't feel like an outcast to his sisters, but his book is next so that should shed some light on him and their connection. It was an earned ending for the uncle as well. 4 Stars because there's no way those girl's parents are as lax as they seem! Thank you for the advanced copy!
