What the duke wants….
Is not three young ladies for wards.
Nor is the responsibility for finding them a governess.
Thankfully that is delegated to his housekeeper, who he might add is blind as a bat.
That really could be the only excuse she has for hiring Carlotta.
Because Carlotta is far too beautiful to be a governess.
Temptress, yes.
Unable to restrain himself—because restraint is not one of his virtues, his reputation is testament of that fact—he finds the young governess far more spirited, opinionated and tempting than he is able to resist.
And of course, because he’s an idiot. He falls in love.
Never questioning whether she’d be a willing participant.
Of course life isn’t that easy, not even when you’re a bloody duke.
And after one meddling Lady Southridge,
Leads to two fiascos,
Three wards decide to take matters into their own hands.
Because what the duke wants…is simply to fall in love (preferably with the young woman in mind, falling in love too.)

She loves to make soap, sauerkraut, sourdough bread and gluten free muffins. Life is full of blessings and she praises God for the blessed and abundant life He's given her.

I did enjoy reading this book. It was my first by this author. I will be looking at her other books. A fun romance worth reading.

Kristin Vayden wrote an engaging tale in What the Duke Wants! What happens when a duke, who just so happens to be one of the tons most notorious rakes, suddenly and unexpectedly becomes guardian to three young ladies? And then has a housekeeper who hires a gorgeous, irresistible governess to watch over these young wards? Will the duke fall for his governess? Is that ‘what the duke wants’?  Both Kristin Vayden’s writing and the story flowed beautifully. I just adored the characters and their interactions with each other. The dialogue is full of fun, witty banter that leaves you feeling connected to the characters and as if you were sitting there eavesdropping on their conversations.  I highly recommend this book – I enjoyed it so much I have already read it twice and it has only been out two days! This is the perfect book for anyone who enjoys Regency romance, magnificent banter between characters and a couple with fabulous chemistry and the makings of a great love story.

I really Enjoyed this book. Carlotta was having a bit of misfortune and needed to find a job. When someone told her that the Duke of Clairmont needed a governess for the three wards he had taken in. As soon as the Duke saw her he had an attraction to her and tried to talk himself out of it. Although he tried to have self control and avoid her he found that whenever he was near Carlotta that he could not resist his attraction for her. So yes there is kissing in this book but I believe it is written very tastefully. This book was funny and heart warming.

A great love story that was witty and hilarious throughout. Loved all the characters. Can't wait to more of Ms. Vayden's work.

This is a Regency novel about a Duke who is very comfortable with his life as a bachelor. He is also a well known Rake. The Duke has just learned that his life will be turned upside down, he has  been given guardianship of 3 girls. Now he must find a Governess to care for them. Charles gets his maid to hire one for him, because he wants nothing to do with his Wards. Little did he know that the maid would hire a beautiful young woman to be his Governess. Shortly after meeting Lottie, he realizes that he can't live without her. But how could they ever have a relationship with her being his employee? All you need is 3 young girls, a meddlesome "Mother figure", and a little shove in the right direction. This was such a wonderful story, it flowed well and all of the characters were endearing! I love all of Kristin's books and this was no exception! If you're looking for a good clean Regency then look no further. I highly recommend this book!
