    One thought on “Duke of My Heart”

    1. The Duchess liked giving orders to the Captain.I enjoyed Duke of My Heart from the very beginning to the very end The opening scene sucked me in with the surprising storyline of a dead Earl tied with silk scarves to the bed of a debutante Ooh, kinky I don t normally expect kinky on the first page of a story, let alone a historical romance I think the opening scene was even interesting because we look at it through the eyes of Miss Ivory Moore I liked Ivory from the first page through the last S [...]

    2. What a wonderful book And what an interesting couple I loved both of them A very unsual story with a very unusual heroine who knows what has to be done better than the hero Very, very interesting Bravo Ms Bowen An very good and interesting romance with just the right amount of action and intelligence I m looking forward to the next book in the series

    3. 3.4 starsThe hero bumbles around a lot and doesn t get an opportunity to shine while the heroine was strong and awesome Overall, the historical feel was missing for me, not sure if due to how the heroine was living her life or what but I missed it The hero just wasn t a strong presence for me and the mystery part of the story felt a little vague and over with earlier on The author s writing is incredibly strong and I enjoy it but I almost feel like she would be a better fit in contemporaries.Emb [...]

    4. Is anyone else confused by the choice of the dress for the cover model The book is set in 1819 and that is most definitely NOT a late Regency era dress.I thoroughly enjoyed the books I read in Kelly Bowen s d but Dukes of Worth series last year, and had marked her out as a new author to watch as a result In Duke of My Heart she has once again crafted an entertaining story that is well written and strongly characterised, with deft touches of humour and a nicely developed romance.Maximus Harcourt, [...]

    5. 3.5 starsDUKE OF MY HEART is my first foray into Kelly Bowen s writing and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised The storyline especially because this is like nothing else I ve read before See, the premise of the story is about a woman whose job is to cover up society s indiscretions, for a fee Miss Moore finds herself at the Duke of Alderidge s home during a party because his sister is nowhere to be found, and there s a dead body naked, tied to her bed Her job is to cover that up so there s [...]

    6. Very promising writing My problem as always lies with the character Ivory Moore s character is just a bit too much She was a superwoman A famous opera singer, a duchess, a lady detective She was resourceful, determined and could do everything better than anyone At one point I just started thinking wow I am sure she is wonderful and all but she was just too over the top for me Max the hero was completely overshadowed by Ivory He did alright in the beginning but somehow Ivory proved and needed to [...]

    7. 3.5 starsThis was my first Kelly Bowen, and it is very clear that she has talent This will not be my last While not a spy novel, it feels like one It starts with intrigue and that carries through the most of the book She deftly handles the reveal of clues, keeps you guessing to the end with well paced twists and turns The main problem I had was that once the intrigue is resolved, and the story focuses on the love story nearly entirely, there is another twist This twist felt wrong and was annoyin [...]

    8. You shouldn t have to be fine, Ivory You should be free Protected from things that you survived once and that you shouldn t have to survive again He brushed his lips across her forehead I want to do that for you I really enjoyed this book What I love most about this author is her unconventional and strong willed heroines, and Ivory did not disappoint From the opening scene I was engrossed in this book Miss Ivory Moore has been summoned to the house of the Duke of Alderidge, and what she finds is [...]

    9. I ve given this a B for both narration and content at AudioGals.I had pegged Kelly Bowen as an author to watch last year after I read and enjoyed her second book, A Good Rogue is Hard to Find, so I was pleased to see there was an audio version of Duke of My Heart, the first book in her new A Season for Scandal series Ms Bowen is an excellent storyteller with a deftly humorous touch, and she has the knack for creating memorable and engaging characters, things she puts to good effect in her latest [...]

    10. Absolutely amazing story LOVED IT audible review WOW WOW WOW I enjoyed every minute of this book I didn t want it to end One of the best historical romance books I have listened to in a long time The heroine Ivory has to be one of my favorites Loved her She was smart, witty, and just wonderful Loved Max the Duke of Alderidge, fantastic hero This is one of the best story lines and plots written for a historical romance The dialogue throughout the book was fantastic and there was lots of it I love [...]

    11. Kelly Bowen continues to bring a fresh voice to historical romances and this Regency romance is no exception Chegarre and Associates is whom the TON calls upon when they have some issue that they can t deal with in a normal fashion You know someone dies in your bed that isn t you husband, give them a call and let them handle all of your hide the body or disguise the truth needs That is exactly what Maximus Harcourt comes home to Ivory Moore helping Max s sister and aunt hide the body in his sist [...]

    12. 3,5 stars I really enjoyed this new series and all the wonderful characters that hopefully will get a book too, though there are too many of them lol.The romance was nice though I didn t care for Maximus at first I never liked alpha heroes who think they know best At least he did stop to actually think and realized he needed help from our Wonderful Miss Ivory Bowen keeps writing such delightful, human and flawed heroines I wish some of the heroes were as good, or as interesting The mystery plot [...]

    13. I loved A Duke to Remember, the second book in Kelly Bowen s Season for Scandal series, and knew I wanted to read the rest of the series Ivory Moore and her husband, Maximus Harcourt, Duke of Alderidge, were important secondary characters in that book and Duke of My Heart is the story of how they met and fell in love.Ivory Moore has a secret past that only a few trusted associates are privy to Using only her wits and resourcefulness, she has forged a new, independent life as owner of Chegarre As [...]

    14. I did a lot of things to survive in my life, things that I cannot apologize for because they have, in the end, brought me here But I am done surviving that life Ivory Bellafiore no longer exists, nor will she ever again I am no longer something to be owned My destiny is mine to choose, mine to control Do you understand Ivory Moore definitely gets on the express one way train to my Favorite Romance Heroines Hall of Fame I liked the romance too, but this book was all about her and her life she bui [...]

    15. The careful barriers that she had built around herself were crumbling like a wall of sand in the face of a rising tide Maximus Harcourt was no longer a client, any than he was an amusement or a distraction There was no point in pretending any, and with that admission a weight seemed to slide away from her For better or for worse, this man had become something 3.5 starsWhile there was no question that I enjoyed Duke of My Heart immensely, it felt like the book s focus was so on setting up the [...]

    16. This is my first read by Kelly Bowen, and I enjoyed this book so much, I am already thinking about checking out her backlist This is the first in her Season For Scandal series, so there is no better time for you to give her a try too This story has a fabulous, independent and capable heroine and a hero willing to put aside his need for propriety and control to protect the people he loves All that, plus an engaging story with good pacing that had me reading the entire book in one sitting.Maximus [...]

    17. This is a book of my heart, if you will pardon the bad pun It is interesting from the very first page, with a naked, dead body in a debutante s bed and two women working in tandem to clear up the mess, prevent a scandal and save the deb s reputation And this book is so strong in its portrayal of the main woman, Ivory Moore.There are so many things I loved about this story The heroine runs her own business and is extremely successful.The heroine was married for a short time to an older man who lo [...]

    18. AwesomeI just love having to stop long enough to laugh out loud again and again BUT mostly I love, love, love sexual tension in a book, and this one has a lot I don t even care if there s sex as long as the tension is there I absolutely, positively hate it when there s no desire, no lust, no thoughts, no nothing, then there s an explicit sex scene or two AND some reviewers call that hot and steamy Umm, no it s not It s sex thrown in because sex sells BUT there s NOTHING that led up to the sex so [...]

    19. Review This is a fun and fanciful, and a tad far fetched, but sometimes far fetched makes for a quick and cute read In Duke of my Heart by Kelly Bowan, a very stubborn and modern twentieth first century woman is plopped down in nineteenth century London, in the female protagonist Ivory Moore Ivory is a problem fixer for the aristocrats of 1819 London She is cleaver, beautiful and a master manipulator, in her job she has to be, as she solves very messy hiccups in the gleaming lives of the ton She [...]

    20. As usual Kelly Bowen does not disappoint I absolutely enjoyed this book, she weaves her stories in such a way that it drags you in and you have to stop everything you re doing just to finish any of her work The heroine was such an alpha , used to taking control of situations around her, a total no nonsense lady Our hero Max was just all the right shades of perfection It s not often that I find a book where I can like both the main characters as well as the secondary character like I did in this [...]

    21. Super into this Mostly, because the couple just works Ivory s just outside of polite society but in a way that means she understands it really well , and she fixes the problems of those within it which is just fun Alderidge, I m not gonna lie, is a dashing sea captain who is compared to a pirate than once though to be fair, it s a physical comparison than anything else But he somehow manages to do that without annoying me I just really ended up liking them as a pair Alderidge s sister s gotten [...]

    22. Maximus Harcourt, Duke of Aldridge, never expected to return home from time spent at sea to people cavorting in evening finery in his ballroom.As assuredly vexing as he may have found the goings on downstairs They could in no way hold a candle to the dead Earl of Debarry tied to his sister s bed, the mysterious absenteeism of said wayward sibling, or the unflagging professionalism of the captivating woman charged with finding the missing Miss, and evacuating the expired Earl All upstairs of cour [...]

    23. This story starts out with quite the attention grabbing scene A naked and very dead earl, tied to Lady Beatrice Harcourt s bed with red ribbons, Lady Bea s clothes in sight but no Lady Bea Cue the Fixer Fixeress , heroine Ivory Moore of Chegarre and Associates, called in by Bea s aunt Helen to keep this from becoming a scandal that will ruin the absent Bea.Add in hero Maximus Harcourt, Duke of Alderidge, who spends his time as Captain Harcourt on the open sea, but just happens to be back in town [...]

    24. The heroine in this one was awesome She was so different and could take care of herself, and she was not ton, aye maybe that was why it was so fun.Ivory helps people with those kind of things that people do not want other people to know about wink wink She knows her way around the underworld in London, and she knows the Ton Even if they pretend they do not even know about her.Max loves the sea, but Max Seriously, you left your sister at home with her aunt And when it came to the aunt, I would be [...]

    25. This was my first Kelly Bowen book and I admit, I won t be rushing to read her next one Although I didn t dislike anything about this book, I didn t really like anything too much either and I did find my mind wandering whilst I was reading Yup, you guessed it, I was bored But, perhaps I just wasn t in the mood, after all there was a piratical Duke, a very capable heroine and a missing sister with a dead libertine tied to her bed by red silken ties It doesn t get much exciting than that Alas, my [...]

    26. I greatly enjoyed Kelly Bowen s d but Dukes of Worth series She has a knack for creating interesting female characters who live and work outside of the normal roles society would have them play Her new book Duke of My Heart takes some the best traits from her earlier heroines and wraps them all into a woman whose intelligence and wit are matched by a duke used to surviving by his own instincts and savvy Please read the full review atAll About Romance

    27. 3.5 I don t know Maybe this rating isn t fair, and I just wasn t in the mood However, I did not enjoy this book as much as the two previous Kelly Bowen books I read It just wasn t a page turner for me, and the ending felt too abrupt.

    28. I really liked this book, though the end left me craving for a bit Maybe it s just me but it kind of seemed as though it ended abruptly Miss Ivory More used to be a Duchess but since her husband passed and given that his family weren t a fan of hers, she hides in a business both she and her deceased husband created They d known once he was gone his family would refuse to give Ivory her place as a Duchess Everyone in the ton knows who Chegarre Associates is, but no one will admit it aloud It s o [...]

    29. This book is the first in a new series by Kelly Bowen I really liked her debut series and was happy to see that this book is equally enjoyable It s was a fast read for me because I couldn t put it down No plot spoilers follow.The hero, Maximus, is a Duke who prefers to be the Captain of his ship which is part of the East India Company He never expected to be the Duke, inheriting the title when his older brothers died He left his younger sister in the care of their aunt and kept sailing He return [...]

    30. What an enjoyable book This was my first by Ms Bowen but won t be my last I thought Max and Ivory were a great couple I loved when we were introduced to Ivory it was quite amusing There was a good mystery, and the love scenes were sensual The only reason this wasn t a five star read for me is that the language at times seemed a bit too modern I can t wait to read in this series.
