ADD TO GOODREADS:
An Unlucky Lady:
Lady Beatrix Westport was once destined to be the most successful debutant the ton has ever seen. Now, it is all she can do to recover from the brutal coaching accident which killed her entire family. Now, she has only one purpose. Continue her family line and secure her father’s earldom. When she meets Captain Duke, who awakens her heart and desires, she knows he’s the best choice for husband. But will her dedication to her duty destroy her only chance at love?
A Wild Duke:
Captain Adam Duke loves adventure and justice. After spending his entire life working to free slaves, he comes to London to open offices. When he meets the wounded Lady Beatrix, he immediately feels a deep connection to her and longs to free her from her pain. But he refuses to be just the stud she longs for. Can he convince her to choose a life of love and adventure or will her broken past drive them apart?
My Wild Duke by Eva Devon is a welcome addition to her Duke’s Club series, bringing together a woman who wants to forget the world with a man who finds her unforgettable.
From the moment Captain Adam Duke spied Lady Beatrix Westport, he’s instantly captivated by her. It was not just her beauty and resolute dignity he that drew him, but rather the aura of innate sadness that surrounded her. Adam understands pain and grief, and he correctly casts Beatrix as a lost soul. He wants to meet her, to befriend her and show her that one can move past loss.
Adam reminds Beatrix of the girl she was before tragedy struck – when her days were filled with laughter and she embraced life to the fullest. Viewing Adam’s confident nature and wild appearance (he is American after all *gasp*), Beatrix vows he is a man she has no interest in meeting as he reminds her of the freedom and joy she has lost.
A quiet meeting in a moonlit garden changes everything …
Eva Devon creates a lovely story of the healing power of love and learning to find your true self in one another. Adam and Beatrix are beautiful together. All the love and kindness (and yes, passion) Adam showers on Beatrix help bring her out of the darkness. Adam is a multi-faceted character with a fascinating backstory and strong sense of justice. I would have liked to see him in action as a sea captain, perhaps with Beatrix along on one of his “raids.” That’s really my only complaint with My Wild Duke – I wish there was more of it!
