He could be a rake if means only to steal a kiss but steals your heart as well.

Nearing thirty, the Duke of Rathburne is finally ready to make amends for the wager that caused him and his best friends such scandal, but taking on a ward who needs a husband is a feat he’s not sure he can manage. The last he saw of Miss Marlena Fast, she was a spirited little ruffian, not the sort of bride most bachelors on the marriage mart sought. But one glance at the lovely lady she has become is enough to convince him otherwise…

Orphaned young and shuffled from family to family, Marlena counts on her fierce independence and quick wits to keep herself content. Being the responsibility of a notoriously wicked duke who upended so many lives is an unexpected challenge when she realizes he arouses her decidedly feminine desire. Marlena must be careful. She has her own scandalous secret to protect. If he finds out, will it shatter her chances of a happily-ever-after with the notorious rake?


I love Amelia Grey and I have enjoyed so much this series!

This is book 3 and I am assuming the last one in the series (though there could be more for all I know!) and let me tell you that just as the other 2 this was fun as hell! It’s All About the Duke is the 3rd Rake of St. James’ story and Rath does not disappoint!

Just to get this out of the way, you could possibly read it as a stand-alone should you really want to, but for maximum enjoyment and to avoid you missing on insider jokes/stories. I would highly recommend that you actually start from book 1 which is Last Night with the Duke and I can tell you right now that if you are anything like me, you are going to be addicted to Dukes within moments!

Here we have the last Duke of Rathburne aka Rath who has suddenly become the Guardian of Marlena. Imagine this a rake with an innocent to watch over!


Actually, it is!

Though Marlena has a huge secret, and I am not going to tell you what it is as you need to be reading the book! I promise you are going to enjoy it!

I have to tell you that there are a lot of enjoyable moments and I had a blast reading It’s All About the Duke! You will know what I am talking about the moment, you start reading!

Amelia has done a wonderful job with this series and this last book, I am going to very highly recommend both and truly encourage you to start with book 1 if you have no started reading yet!

The series, is very entertaining, packed full of outstanding characters and the shared backstory is a clear show of the stupidity of youth! But I do not judge, and I think this a lively example of facing the consequences and growing up at the same time.

I have given you plenty to consider, so you should really grab all 3 books and start reading!
