Miss Amelia Lands a Duke by Sandy Raven

Spinster Amelia accepts a position as a companion to her social-climbing aunt who is planning her next wedding before she is even out of mourning for her second husband. And the man her aunt is stalking is none other than the wealthy widower, the Duke of Caversham.

At a house party attended by both the duke and her aunt, Amelia is horrified at her aunt's behavior and decides to hide away in their host's library and gardens for the duration of their visit. On an evening walk through the maze she meets an older gentleman who intrigues and arouses her. She flees without learning his name, only to stumble across that same handsome gentleman in the library days later, where to Amelia's astonishment, he kisses her. And she kisses him back!

Amelia and the duke are caught in their passionate embrace by her aunt. Embarrassed at her own wanton behavior, Amelia flees the room believing he's used her to avoid her aunt. After confronting her aunt, the duke does what he believes is the honorable thing and makes plans to marry Amelia.

Only he never asks her.

About the Author

Sandy Raven has a husband who spoils her rotten, and kids that are just a hair’s breadth away from perfect. She’s addicted to House Hunter’s International and has never missed an episode, though she acknowledges that she could never live in most of those countries because the houses are just too small. She is also addicted to Starbucks’ Chai Latte, and never passes up an opportunity to have one. Sandy grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast with sand between her toes and perpetually frizzy hair. Which is why she now lives in the middle-of-nowhere Virginia, in a place with minimal to moderate humidity (for perfect, non-frizzy curls,) rolling hills and farmed forests. The only downside to that is the temperamental satellite internet and the closest Starbucks being a thirty minute drive away. Home is a renovated old farm house she shares with her hero husband, in the foothills of Blue Ridge Mountains, where she’s owned by more cats, dogs and horses than she cares to admit to. She’s a long-time member of RWA, and is a member of VRW and the Beau Monde. Second to writing is her love for her horses. She practices natural horsemanship, and loves to ride her barefoot Tennessee Walkers on the trails and in the woods around her home. You can visit her at her website at www.SandyRaven.com and on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/SandyRavenAuthor.

It is hard to write a post for a book that is only about 85 pages long. You don't want to give away spoilers in your review so you have to be careful what you say. This is the perfect book for a short trip an hour to two hours of uninterrupted reading and you can have this 80 pages done. She went to the party as the companion forher aunt.

This is a nice quick, nice and easy read. I like the May-Dec romance. Which is not unusual for the era and same to have a quick love match. I liked the characters and the story line. Well written for a short story. It could have been more if it were longer, however I know it is the start of a series. I look forward to reading rest of the books.. I enjoyed reading this story.

Miss Amelia Lands a Duke: The Caversham Chronicles Book 0 (Audible Audio Edition) The cover for this book suits the story so well!! I love that the Duke looks mature with een a touch of silver at the temples and is yet a very handsome man. Miss Amelia is also a wonderful character since she is 29 and "confirmed on the shelf" since she helped her father instead of marrying. It is quite refreshing to read a love story about older characters.... to which I can identify with so well. The writing is excellent, editing is outstanding and using the male and female narrators really brings the story to life. I didn't want to stop listening.... even wore my earphones through the news. LOL I can't wait to read the next installment since this was the Prequel. If you haven't listened, you are really missing out on a wonderful experience. Sandy Raven writes her characters into life where they become so believable. Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity for an amazing experience. I just loved it... loved Chaversham's character (by looking at the cover) and the strength and independence Miss Amelia maintained without giving up her good humor. check it out!

This author needs to be more aware of what and how she writes. We read that Amelia has no family but the aunt then read that she also has uncles one of whom is the Archbishop of Canterbury! After speaking with her a few minutes the duke knows she will make a perfect wife based on his body's reaction to her. Marriage is more than sexual attraction. At one point he hides her from her aunt's view in the library. He turns his back to Amelia shielding her yet she is able to slap his face while presses into a corner. The author has the duke thinking that a new wife would want children of her own to secure her place. Given that the man is 52 years old he knows that he won't live to see them grown to adulthood. Knowing that her children would be dependent on the older step-brother it is unlikely she would want children who, along with herself, could be displaced at the duke's death and certainly not to secure her place. I wish it were possible to give less than one star.

Cute short read to a great series.  He does think of and mention his widow a lot but other than that it was good.

So sweet,but also sultry and alluring. Historically ambiguous in the best way. Giving too many details of historical nature makes room for error. There was enough to paint a picture but not too much to dull the book to a recitation of English history. Will definitely read more!

I stopped after chapter one. Characters are one-dimensional and the writing is repetitive. The setting and plot are not believable. The male character is not believable. When the entire plot can be determined through reading the title, I suppose that should have been my warning to skip the book.

90 some pages of page-filler material. There's nothing to the story. Old duke is not a likable character. He falls in love with a spring chicken and takes her for a bride. He appeases himself by thinking his first wife would be happy for him - she would want him to get married again. Really? Since he's been neglecting his kids all along
