The Daring Duke by Jess Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I couldn't put this down!
THE DARING DUKE is the first book in Jess Michaels new 1797 Club series. And I'm so glad I found it! The series centers around 10 young men that are in line for their respective dukedoms. They have formed the 1797 Club while at boarding school with James Rylon, The Duke of Abernathe as the leader. He has a pretty crappy childhood and is in need of some support and guidance.
James is the first to come into his dukedom. He's sworn off marriage after his parents marriage was such a disaster. He's a born leader, handsome, bold, a wild child and in Emma's words golden.
Emma is a wallflower, plain (in her eyes) and a bluestocking. She doesn't think these are marriageable qualities. She also has a way of assuming things that aren't true and that doesn't work in her favor.
I thought this book was really good, a awesome start to what I hope is a fantastic series, The characters are nicely developed and well written with a side of witty banter. I'm excited for the next release which is Simon's book!
I received a copy from the publisher via netgalley for my honest, unbiased review.
