Book Love (51) What a Devilish Duke Desires


Harry Norcliffe never wanted to inherit his beloved uncle’s title. The rigidity of the ton, the incessant reminders from his marriage-minded mama that he must settle down with a highborn lady and produce an heir and a spare: it’s all such a dreadful bore. So when his mother asks him to take part in a dancing competition, he patently refuses. The last thing he needs is another chore . . . until a beautiful, brilliant, delightfully tempting maid makes him rethink his position.


Most women would be over the moon to be pursued by a wickedly handsome—not to mention wealthy—duke like Norcliffe. But Lucy will not be any man’s trophy. She could use a friend, though, and what begins innocently soon ignites into desire. As Lucy tries to resist Harry’s scorching kisses, he makes an utterly irresistible offer. Enter the dance contest with him, and win a prize that could change her life forever . . . if falling in love doesn’t change it first.

Why A Devilish Duke Desires

I have so much love for this book and this author especially. But this one is probably one of the best books of hers I have read. It was a five star read for me, so that should tell you how much I love it. These two are fantastic together, and their witty bantering is so endearing. The characters are the center of the story, Definitely ones you can root for. If you are a HR fan and love Regency, this is an author you need to try out.
