About the Author

USA TODAY Bestselling author Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and pick up her laptop to try her hand at romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections, and she rather enjoys torturing them before crafting them a well deserved happily ever after!

Christi makes her home in southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing her own enchanting historical romances, chasing around her spirited son and caring for her twin princesses in training!

For Love of the Duke by Christi Caldwell Heart of a Duke Series Book One Lady Katherine Adamson felt plain next to her beloved and outgoing twin sister, Anne. She always ended up in Anne’s schemes and adventures as well. Only this time things don’t turn out so well as they go to in search of the magical necklace their sister Aldora once possessed. She needed to be rescued and of all people to rescue her, the Mad Duke. Jasper Waincourt 8th Duke of Brainbridge did not want to be in London. He hated Society, ton...the gossip. In his dark dank castle he could hide and suffer for what he had done to his beautiful wife Lydia. He had killed her and his heart died right along with her. But the Lady Katherine is showing him that maybe he is not completely dead. Only guilt and vows will not allow him to have enjoyment or live again. Ever. The search for the gold heart locket from In Need of Duke, the story of Lady Aldora Adamson, continues as Anne is a believer in the power of the locket. Katherine learned long ago about reality. After their father’s death they found out he had gambled everything away and leaving them destitute. But why not allow Anne to have her dreams? **Sexual content

A wonderful story of two people needing love and not able to reach out for it. Jasper, the Duke has suffered loss and is unable to open his heart. Katherine has been made to believe herself unworthy of finding love. These two have to overcome the walls built around their hearts to find their love for each other. A well written, engrossing story.

It's always nice when you get a different story line with a stronger woman than you expect! 5 Star, Buy it. Read it! Rate it for yourself!

This book was great. If I had one complaint, it would be that it did get repetitive with going over why they can't be together, why Jasper has such a hard time moving, etc. I did enjoy reading this!

My Disclaimer: I was provided a free copy of this book for joining the author’s newsletter. I am providing an honest review for which I am receiving no compensation of any kind. All opinions are fully my own. ~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review My Review: ✭✭✭✭ I don’t know about you, but I started out with historical romances, and they have remained my favorite genre to this day. If this first book in the series is what the rest of them are like, I have twelve more to read, because this is just like the classic historical romances I cut my teeth on. A heroine with a head on her shoulders. A handsome hero with his own set of problems. And friends and family interference to complicate things. I’m not saying that this blew me out of the water because that would mean that it would have five stars up there and there are only four. It is a typical storyline with typical characters…but I cried! There was something in the way Ms. Caldwell wrote of Katherine’s love, of his letting her go and the pain in it. OMG, yes, I was in tears. So poignant. I would have liked more at the ending, but it was neatly tied up. That seems to be the style currently. Up there at the top of the page is a list of the rest of the thirteen books in this series, which I must now add to my poor overburdened TBR list. But what fun! I’ll cry, and laugh and fall in love another dozen times! Christi Caldwell has delivered up a baker’s dozen of great reading, what’s wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. Historical romance is a fast read because they have a certain formula and style. But they are such a comfort to the reader for that familiarity. When you pick up a new historical romance, you know what you have in your hands. And don’t we love it!

I enjoyed this book very much. Although I gave it a 4 star for some grammatical errors that occur commonly throughout and took a second sometimes to figure out. Good read and I will be looking into the rest of the series and more by this author.
