Review of Dukes are Forever by Anna Harrington

Dukes Are Forever (The Secret Life of Scoundrels, #1)Dukes Are Forever by Anna Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Edward Westover is seeking vengeance for the deaths of his brother and sister-in-law who were killed in a carriage accident by a deadbeat gambler. Upon gaining his revenge he now finds out he is the guardian of an attractive ward, Kate.

Little did he know she is a young woman responsible for running her estate and taking care of the sick in her village. I like how he thought Kate was this young little girl. He even brought her a dolly when he came to meet her lol. She defies Edward every chance she gets and rightfully so I might add. The way he just comes barging into her life and expecting Kate to obey his commands. He'd be kicked out my door and down the street if it was me no matter how attractive he is! In this novel I thought Kate was a strong female and if you've read my other reviews I love books with a mental and emotionally strong female lead.

I didn't feel as nicely for Edward throughout most of the book even though I felt Kate made up for that after she melted his heart of stone. I understand he has trust issues because of his past. I just wish he hadn't punished Kate so harshly when he found her letter. Also, he continued to distance himself when she showed up on his doorstep worried sick after his duel.

This story to me is like a beauty and the beast story and that's what I like about it. I mean to fall in love and marry your enemy's daughter just tells of how much Edward's heart has opened to love again. For these reasons I am rating Dukes are Forever a 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this Ebook on Netgalley from the publishers free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
