Review: An Unexpected Duchess by Valerie Bowman


Rating 5 Stars!

I love strong Heroines!  Lucy is definitely a person who holds back no punches! There was instant attraction between Derek Hunt, the Duke of Decisive and Lady Lucy Upton. They are both loyal to a fault! Who else would give up a friendship and the man she loves to make sure that friend had a chance at happiness. Throw in some war intrigue and it makes this story thrive. I can't wait for Cass and Julians' story!

From the Book Jacket

Is there any greater surprise than falling deeply, madly in love?

In This Battle of Wits


Lady Lucy Upton’s tongue may be too sharp to attract suitors but her heart is good, and when her painfully shy friend Cassandra needs help she devises a brilliant scheme to help her discourage an unwanted suitor, the Duke of Claringdon. Lucy will hide behind the hedgerow and tell Cass just what to say to discourage the duke…but it turns out that he’s made of sterner stuff than either of them anticipated. And Lucy is shocked to discover that tangling with the tenacious man is the most fun she’s had in ages.

Kisses Are the Best Weapon

Lord Derek Hunt made a promise to his dying friend to marry the demure Cassandra, and for a man who wants nothing more than peace and quiet after the horrors of war, she’ll make the perfect bride. If only the impudent Miss Upton will let him court the girl! Doing battle is the last thing on his mind, but bantering with Lucy behind the bushes is too tempting to resist. And the spoils of this war just may be true love…

I recieved this from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review.
