Title: Romancing the Duke
Series: Castles Ever After #1
Author: Tessa Dare
Genre: Historical Romance
In the first in Tessa Dare’s captivating Castles Ever After series, a mysterious fortress is the setting for an unlikely love . . .
As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities.
And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one.
Ugly duckling turned swan?
Abducted by handsome highwayman?
Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?
No, no, and… Heh.
Now Izzy’s given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who’s never even been kissed?

My Rating: ★★★★★
Themes: Beauty and the Beast, Tortured Hero
Review: This is a great one for fans of Beauty and The Beast retellings that don’t retell the story scene for scene and also like their romances steamy 😉
It’s a beautiful story with some very entertaining and humorous moments.
