A Duke Too Far by Jane Ashford is an Adult Historical Romance out now!
“Secrets to reveal, legends to unravel, and a love to fight for…
Peter Rathbone, Duke of Compton, is already struggling to handle the responsibilities of his family home and his grief over his sister, Delia’s death when he’s astonished by an unexpected visitor. Life is about to get even more complicated.
Miss Ada Grandison is desperate to throw off haunting memories, and she’s sure the duke can help her find answers to the questions her friend, Delia, left behind. She brings a note that Delia claimed would change everything for the Rathbone family. Peter can’t quite bring himself to believe the legends he’s heard all his life, but something about Ada inspires him to hope.”
This book started out a little weird but intriguing. We follow the main hero as he’s ventured into a morbid dinner invitation turned matchmaking session.
It completely took me in as I HAD to know what in the world was going on here.
While I love reading historical romances, the genre itself can be a hit or miss for me. Usually the writing style either captures me or is just too blah to continue. While this book did grab my attention right away, there were moments throughout the book that I felt a little left in the dust.
I ended up giving this one 3 out of 5 stars. The romance itself was OK, nothing too surprising. I wish the characters didn’t feel a little cut and dry.
