LADY VIVIAN DEFIES A DUKE may be purchased here.
LADY VIVIAN DEFIES A DUKE
Luke Forest, the new Duke of Foxhaven, wants nothing to do with his new inheritance and responsibilities. Luke, especially, wants to get rid of the lady that his father betrothed him to. When Luke arrives at Lady Vivian Worth's aunt's estate, he is surprised to find a young woman swimming in her chemise. When that young lady proves to be his betrothed, Lady Vivian, Luke decides to aid her in finding a husband. Unfortunately, Luke is greatly attracted to Vivian, and no man seems good enough for her.
LADY VIVIAN DEFIES A DUKE is a charming regency romance with appealing characters. While Luke has his reasons for wanting to end his betrothal and his responsibilities as a duke, I found myself a little annoyed with him for continuing in this way of thinking for as long as he did. However, when viewed through regency glasses, I guess Luke's reticence can be understood. Anyway, Luke is a likable hero with a great sense of humor, and he wants and allows Vivian to be herself. Vivian is a strong, independent heroine, who has a tendency to be impulsive. Vivian has a good heart but can be a little naive at times. There are several amusing scenes in this book, which adds to the overall enjoyment.
Overall, LADY VIVIAN DEFIES A DUKE is a pleasant read with likable characters and a satisfying romance.
NOTE: I received this book in return for an unbiased review.
