Ash Hawkins, Duke of Buckley, no more wants to marry than he wants a stick in his eye. As the owner of a gaming hell, he is all too aware the odds of a happy marriage are against him. But raising his three rebellious wards alone is proving more than he can handle. He needs to find someone who stands to benefit from a marriage of convenience as much as he does. Someone logical, clinical, and rational. And in a stroke of luck, he quite literally stumbles over just such a woman.
After years of ridicule for being more interested in bugs than boys, Bronwyn has accepted that she’ll never marry for love. Her parents, however, are threatening to find her a husband. Bronwyn doesn’t need any scientific research to show her Ash has secrets. But his proposal would give her the freedom to continue her entomology research and perhaps finally get published. Just as long as she can keep her mind on her work and off his piercing eyes, broad shoulders, and wicked, wicked tongue.
Some Dukes Have All the Luck by Christina Britton is a hilarious yet romantic historical read. Instantly, the characters have charmed their way into my heart. From the Duke who took in his three sisters to the spinster, I fell hard and fast. The little wards also made me cry and laugh so hard. The dialogue is fun and witty. No words are wasted. Christina Britton knows how to entertain readers like myself. I love anything that has action, fast pacing, along with humor and romance. This book has such a huge emotional appeal as well. So heartfelt and engaging from the beginning to end. Ash does seem to have all the luck when he ran into Bronwyn. Bronwyn is a highly intellectual young woman who finds being accepted by her family and peers difficult. Her parents were drama queens. I did not like them much. There were all well-fleshed out and convincing in their roles. Each character has a major part they played. The scenes fly by so quickly. I finished reading this satisfying romance in 2-days. I did not want it to end. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all historical and rom-com fans alike.
