I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Daring to Love the Duke’s Heir by Janice Preston. A big thank you to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
She’s totally unsuitable…
…to be his Duchess!
Part of The Beauchamp Heirs: Dominic Beauchamp, Lord Avon, is a powerful duke’s heir and it’s his duty to marry well. His bride must have impeccable breeding, manners and grace. But can anyone meet his exacting standards? Certainly not the irrepressible Liberty Lovejoy, who’s been thrust into society after years of being a provincial nobody. She’s too bold, too bubbly…so why is she the only lady he’s thinking about?
Oh this book, sigh! I couldn’t put it down! I really want to leave it there because it will be hard to explain how much I loved this story. I will try though 😉
This is such a wonderful story and a fabulous addition to The Beauchamp Heirs series although it works perfectly well as a standalone too. In this story we first meet Liberty who is let’s just say a woman on a mission, one she is determined to see through! From the first page what can I say I was hooked that’s how well Janice Preston writes. I loved Liberty she has so much love for her family and was determined to protect them. From that first meeting with Dominic you could see the chemistry bubbling away and I couldn’t wait for more. Dominic is a person who is torn between duty and his heart, he has grown up with a certain event hanging over him that has affected his entire life. I loved this pairing from their clashes to the way that they are so alike in that they care so much for the welfare of their families.
The romance I guess I would class as a slow burner but it works so well, Janice Preston keeps the chemistry and tension at a perfect level the whole way through. I loved every interaction and moment that this pair spent together! I think that the pacing was spot on with witty conversations between the two characters that brought so much warmth to the story. The ending well what can I say it completely got me and I have to admit there were very nearly tears it just felt so perfect, sigh! Daring to Love the Duke’s Heir has oodles of romance, warmth and charm. The perfect escape, I loved it!
