He has just inherited his father’s estate upon returning from a long stint in the Army. Will he inherit smoothly.
Now, he faces a more terrifying prospect—he must marry right away or lose his inheritance.
Shawn William, Duke of Worthington, cousin to the Prince Regent and ruler of Fairbanks, has seen many things during his time in the Army. Death and dismemberment, pain and suffering, but nothing has prepared him for his return to life as a civilian. Haunted by the ghosts of his past and battling the inner demons that keep him from restful sleep, he must still find time to choose a Lady as his bride, as commanded by the Prince Regent.
Although there are dozens of eligible maidens in beautiful Fairbanks, he only has eyes for one—the ravishing Lady Elizabeth Dowling. Another man wants to pay court to her, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes, even a fight to the death, if it means that she will be his bride…
Will Duke Shawn finally meet his match in the form of the waspish older gentleman who has already asked for Lady Elizabeth’s hand and been denied?
Can Lady Elizabeth discover the true reason for her reluctance toward the handsome Duke of Fairfield before he chooses another bride—perhaps even her own sister?
This is a clean historical regency romance novel.
More for a Duke by Jessie Bennett is a dashing bold read. A Duke returns home to find all is not well with the family finances. A younger brother not knowing how to deal with the finances right, led to some some disorder and interruption into the elderly brother’s life. He returns back home, from war, and finds he must marry or else. This soon leads him to meeting a woman of his age who also, doesn’t like going to balls. But something transpires between them. Lady Elizabeth is fascinated with the Duke; however, her sister doesn’t want them together…and a particular man is also wanting the two new love birds separate.
A man who can forget a woman he’s just met, a woman who is undecided about a man, and another man who can’t take a hint…plus, jealousy comes into play. Jessie Bennett has entertained me again with her latest novel, More for a Duke. The title goes in hand with the tale perfectly. Both Duke and Lady are indeed a perfect match…
More for a Duke is sweet, innocent, and swoon worthy. Readers will blush, laugh, and fall in love with this great new read. Jessie Bennett’s writing clear, precise, and flawless. I highly recommend it.
