A lovestruck lady charms the duke of her dreams during an expedition on the high seas in this sexy, swashbuckling novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans.
Alexander Sylvester Bracken, Duke of Bedford, has a mission: sail to the Mediterranean and track down Lady Hestia Caryís missing father. It is a straightforward task, but for two rather vexing complications. First, the sea holds painful memories; second, for her own safety, Hestia is to accompany him. As Alex battles the demons of his past, he must also resist Hestiaís surprisingly skillful attempts at seduction. After all, Alex has sworn to leave her untouched, and he intends to honor that vowóuntil he can properly ask the Earlís blessing.
Ever since His Grace rescued Hestia from the arms of a Turkish pirate six long years ago, her heart has belonged to Alex. So when he agrees to help find her father, Hestia is thrilled. Although Alex tries to hide it, thereís passion in his eyesóand a frisson of desire in the airówhenever they meet. On board ship, miles from home, Alex wonít be able to deny her any longer. But with scoundrels lying in wait, she may not live to tell the tale of her conquest.
Review:Addicted to the Duke has everything!
For a Regency romance, it was so unorthodox in terms of one of the elements in the storyline which is drug addiction. I found that really fascinating because usually in Regency romances you get drunken or whorish behaviors but very seldom do I red about battling addiction and for me that took the story and the book overall to the next level!
I think that usually romance heroes have these larger than life qualities even though they have their flaws and I felt as I was reading the book that our Duke Alex is so very human and could be one of us.
Alex and Hestia both have a unique bond forged pretty much in hell, and I am not going to tell you more because that would ruin the story for you but honestly it the worse!
For Regency addicts you are going to love it and this is truly a wonderful first book of a new series. I cannot wait to read more and frankly you guys are going to love this baby. It has that perfect combination of all those perfect elements to make a fantastic book!
So I am going to highly recommend it and encourage you all to pick it as a wonderful summer read!
Bronwen Evans continues to write, a brilliantly and masterfully work of romance! Such feelings and emotions shown throughout this powerful and compelling story, are hard to convene to readers. But she managed it, beautifully.
– April, Goodreads Reviewer
An epic drama of love, lies, self-control, suspense, surprises and secrets. It’s a captivating storyline that keeps you turning the pages.
