This book kept me up turning pages at night. I adored both the hero (Harry) and the heroine (Lady Anne). Harry proved to be a rouge with a heart and his actions touched my soul. I rooted for him to find his way as the story unfolded. Lady Anne proved to be a relatable character and I sympathized with her on many levels. She knew her heart and mind as was not afraid to follow where they led. Both of these characters had strengths and faults that made them endearing and real. The author did a fantastic job of making the characters, story, and setting three dimensional. I recommend this book to all historical romance readers.

The Game of Seduction! Christi Caldwell has charmed me again with her 3rd book More Than a Duke, in her Heart of a Duke series. What happens when a naive young lady asks the help of a devilish rogue? In her first book, For Love of a Duke, we followed Katherine's story, now, we will discover the story of her twin sister Anne. And the devilish rogue is Harry, the Earl of Stanhope, whom no woman can resist. Anne is searching for the perfect husband, rich, smart and handsome, but needs help to seduce and catch him. So she asks Harry, a scoundrel of experience in this matter, to teach her the art of seduction. Some scenes are so cute! It all started with a stolen kiss that ignited a beautiful passion between Anne and Harry, but his mission is compromised when he realizes that he is falling in love with her. I love the chemistry between the two. Some scenes are filled with romance added with a dash of humour. What started like a pretend courtship, will quickly turn into a new game of teasing and seduction with sparks flaring all over! What will happen next? Will they fall in love? Will Harry become jealous of his rivals? Only time will tell! Christi Caldwell really wrote a fun, romantic and charming love story that will surely please you!

April Jan 11, 2015 April rated it 5 of 5 stars An enjoy and satisfying read! #2 in "The Heart of a Duke", but can be read as a stand alone. "More Than a Duke" has witty dialogue, seduction, and romance. It is fast paced with interesting, enduring and engaging characters. The storyline, while, not unique, is intriguing with it's witty banter, it's feeling of betrayal in the past by loved ones, and learning to trust again. I enjoyed the way the author brought the reader along for the ride of seduction but the true seduction was at the end of the story, between Harry and Anne. I enjoyed watching them both grow in their love, compassion and passion of each other. An enjoyable and Satisfying read from the first page to the last. I would highly recommend to any romance reader, especially Historical Romance readers. A sweet Historical Romance tale with a few twists and turns along the way. *Received for an honest review from the author* Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

Another predictable take where Anne and Harry start of annoying each other. A lot of chest poking and elbow to the ribs. This was a bit slower than the second Duke story with Anne's twin, Kat.

London England - 1815 Lady Anne Arlette Adamson, age 20, has caused her mother much frustration simply because she is not yet betrothed.  Anne’s twin sister, Katherine, is happily married to the Duke of Bainbridge.  Anne is a lovely young lady with beautiful golden hair. As a highly spirited gal, she is not willing to settle for just any man.  She wants to marry a Duke, just as her sister did.  She knows that the Duke of Crawford is in the market for a wife.  He is extremely wealthy and would surely suit her. Harry Falston, the 6th Earl of Stanhope, age 30, has a reputation as a total rogue.  Because he is known for these ways, Anne decides to meet up with him in the conservatory while at a dance for she wants to enlist his help.  She wants him to teach her how to seduce a man.  Using these skills, her hope is to gain a proposal from the Duke of Crawford. Harry is intrigued by Anne but is hesitant to help her.  When she tells him that if he doesn’t help her, she will find someone else who will instruct her, he reluctantly agrees.  His heart is truly not in this as there was a beautiful woman in his past who tried this same thing with him and ended up breaking his heart. As they meet to discuss things, Harry finds that Anne is not the silly person he originally thought she was.  When he learns of the difficulties she has faced in her life, he realizes she is indeed a strong young woman simply seeking a happy and secure future. Oh, but there is a true evil rogue by the name of Lord Rutland who would gladly seduce Lady Anne.  Thus, Harry realizes that she and her reputation could be in danger and he finds himself becoming a man who really cares.  And, oh my, he might be falling in love! Again, Christi Caldwell, has wowed readers!  She writes such wonderful novels with characters that tugs at the reader’s heartstring while providing us with numerous laughs. This is Book 3 in the author’s “Heart of a Duke Series.”

More Than a Duke by Christi Caldwell Heart of a Duke Series Book Two Lady Anne Arlette Adamson is the last unmarried sister. Her twin sister, Katherine, found her love match and a duke at that, but he wasn't the “right” duke to make their mother happy. As if anything would make their mother happy. Anne did set her heart on a duke and she just needed help to get his attention. Who better than her sister's rogue friend to teach her how to seduce a man? Harry Falston, the 6th Earl of Stanhope had loved and lost and fell deep in the ways of a rogue these past eight years. He could charm almost any woman he wanted. He only failed once to seduce, Katherine Adamson. It seems his charms also hold no power over Anne Adamson and yet she needs his help. What could it hurt?  The past can rule a person's life and decisions. The haze of the past often distorts the present and future. The Countess of Wakefield has been jaded by her late husband and her children have been affected by his actions as well. Can Anne break through the past like her sisters did? Be sure to read Adora's story in the prequel; In Need of a Duke and Katherine's story in book one; For Love of the Duke. Great series. **Sexual content within marriage
