Romancing the Duke

Romancing the Duke  - Tessa Dare
No creature in this world could bolt so quickly as a rake confronted with the word “marriage”. They ought to shout it out at footraces rather than using starting pistols.
Ready, steady…matrimony!
I immensely enjoyed this book. It was funny, sweet, romantic, and just left me feeling all gooey inside. At times the story was rather silly (there is a very enthusiastic fandom of a fairy tale book, that may have been a little overdone, especially for that time), but I didn’t care. I simply enjoyed this book too much. I mean the story takes place in a freaking medieval castle – the scary kind with rats and bats!
A collection of mismatched turrets and raging, crenellated walls, studded amid rolling green fields. But the surrounding park had grown so wild and dense from neglect that by the time the castle came into view, she was already cowering in its shadow.
This castle didn’t welcome or enchant.
It loomed.
It menaced.
