Title: The Lady and Her Duke
Author: Ruth A. Casie
Genre: Historical Romance, Regency Romance
Could she use her skills as a lockpick to crack open the secrets to the murder as well as unlock his heart?
Lady Katherine Thornton has no interest in men after an indiscretion at her disastrous Season in London. No man can be trusted. Instead, she indulges in her fascination for gears and all things mechanical. Her unique drafting skill is an asset to her uncle Bennett Sutton, who is automating his textile factory. She doesn't need anything else.
Lord Ian Wallace, the 4th Duke of Blackhall, is a retired military officer. An accidental duke after the deaths of his father and brother, he retreats from society and the clawing mothers and debutantes who stalk him. He’s focused all his energy on his partnership with Sutton. He’s satisfied and needs nothing else.
An oath to marry, a family legend to preserve, an uprising of the factory workers, and Sutton’s murder, throw Katherine and Wallace together to find a blackmailer and murderer. They also will find two things neither knew they were missing… each other and their happily ever after.
A regency romantic adventure that will simply captivate a vast audience. This book is so well written, it grips the reader right off. It isn't too long before you start trying to fit in reading while doing other things. I was waiting one minute for a counter to count down and managed to get a page or two read in the sixty seconds. This book is addictive to the reader.
Character development is deep and rich. The make up of this story is enough to fill several books. There is romance, intrigue, suspense, mystery, and mythology. Whatever you want out of a great book, this book will provide. The suspense part of the book was strong enough to make this book a winner. Add in a great romantic story and wow.
Recommended to all fans of regency romance. Recommended to fans of Ruth's work. This has to be one of Ruth's best works yet. That is high praise for an award-winning author, but this book deserves high praise.
