Are you ready to romp with The Dukes' Club?
Her dance card is nearly full.
The only sister of the Duke of Hunt, Lady Gemma, is finally ready to settle down. After all, she's spent too many of her days frolicking all over town. As an Eversleigh, she's ready for an excellent match. Desiring a serious, reserved, and strong husband who can handle her antics, Gemma handpicks Captain Duke. Surely, she's selected the perfect man, but perfection may not be as it seems.
This pirate is treading on dangerous water.
Alexander Duke knows the violence of the seas, the brutality of humanity, and the dangers of fighting for a cause. He has no patience for a silly and persistent woman, who exudes more bubbles than a bottle of champagne. But when Lady Gemma turns on the charm, no man can resist her wiles, not even a rugged and courageous pirate. However, protecting his heart is Captain Duke's number one priority. When a scandalous event shocks his hardened soul, he's forced to take action, turning his back on his lifelong oath. Suddenly, he's asking for her hand and putting both of their hearts on the line. Can two stubborn people relinquish control to know true love or will they rock the boat too violently to find their happy ever after?
A DUKE BY ANY OTHER NAME by Eva Devon stands out amongst the best of the Regency and historical romance genre with its deeply evocative settings, well-developed characters, and the inclusion of serious historical events to flesh out this invigorating time period, all expertly blended with passionate relationships founded on loyalty and love. Lady Gemma is strong and defiant, just like so many in her scandalous family, so when she sets her sights on Mr. Duke for a potential husband, she is shocked when he does not seem inclined to accept her proposal. Alexander Duke knows firsthand that you can never trust love or the word of a woman, and he carries the scars from his past alongside those that he has witnessed on the violent seas. The last thing he needs is a spoilt little rich girl looking for a husband. But as her presence surrounds him at every opportunity, Alexander soon learns that she is intelligent, headstrong, caring, and willing to help those who need it most, and when she is with him she fills his senses in every possible way. Sadly love is not a possibility for him. But when a scandal threatens can Alexander do everything he can to make it right? Even if it means opening up his heart to the possibility of love and heartbreak?
Well-paced, thoughtful, and extremely addictive, A DUKE BY ANY OTHER NAME by Eva Devon completely captured my interest from the first sentence and kept me under Gemma's and Alexander's spell to the very end. Gemma is a wonderful character as she is so upfront, fiery, independent and loyal, but yet has a vulnerable, softer side at times that makes her so relatable. Alexander struggles to let go of his past, and while at times I wanted to shout at him, you cannot help but love him as he is such an admirable, loyal, giving character who wants to change the world for the better. With lots of energy, sizzling passion, friendship, family, love, and yearning to make a difference, A DUKE BY ANY OTHER NAME by Eva Devon is everything you want in a book and more. I highly recommend this novel and all of Eva's books as she is one of my go-to authors for a guaranteed cracking read. Enjoy!
