The Devil Duke Takes a Bride by Rachel Van Dyken
Who said being bad wasn't oh so good?
Benedict Devlyn, Duke of Banbury, has one thing on his mind and it isn't marriage. But things take a turn for the worse when his menacing aunt throws a hitch in his plans to remain the most sinful and talked about man in the ton. After all, a man cannot keep the reputation of being The Devil Duke when he is leg-shackled to some simpering spinster.
But his aunt, bless her heart, thinks she's dying, and believes her nephew’s behavior is the only thing standing in the way between her entrance to heaven or hell. So she very lovingly and selflessly sets him up. With his childhood nemesis.
A young woman who, though she claims it was an accident, has nearly killed him thrice through her lack of grace and manners. It matters not that the minute he sets eyes on her at the Christmas ball, his blood boils with lust. He refuses to allow himself to fall prey to his aunt’s ministrations.
That is, until he is compromised and stuck in an engagement to a girl who claims she'd rather jump from a moving carriage than marry him. Funny thing that, for the very minute she says no, he finds his heart very much wants to say yes. When she doesn't leap at the chance to marry him, he sets about to not only prove that he's worthy of her favor, but also worthy of her heart.
Rachel Van Dyken has done it again! The Devil Duke Takes a Bride is a dazzling story that has lingered with me and will be read again! It is has the following and more~ witty banter, laughter, many scandals, hope, love, lots of mistakes, remorse, stolen kisses and a sneaky aunt Agatha. Ms. Van Dyken has weaved a heartfelt story that is fun but grows a bit complex! I totally fell in love with this sassy story. Katherine had me laughing oh the thins this girl does! She is also strong, sassy and clumsy! The Devil Duke is such a rouge, but he is so much more. I think he grew and learned through the story. I found aunt Agatha to be a delightful addition to this story. She is outrageous, full of love and sharp! It is always luxury to read a story by Rachel Van Dyken. I look forward to reading Baldwyn's story! Hope you plan on writing it!
