Book Review: When a Duke Loves a Woman

Posted on 21 August 2018

Happy Release Day to When a Duke Loves a Woman!

Here's my review: 

Disclaimer: Received an ARC from the publisher on Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.

First off, I must admit I liked When a Duke Loves a Woman much more than Between Scandal and Desire. The premise, in itself, was intriguing. Our heroine, Gillie, is a tavern owner (unconventional!) and the hero is a duke who is stabbed outside her tavern. They come closer through a series of incidents.

I liked the strong heroine, the relatively less alpha hero, and the overall relationship development. Lorraine Heath delivers her signature chemistry and good writing. We also get a peek into the lives of Finn and Lavinia, who are the protagonists of the next book. Now, I'm really excited for that one.

Pros:
1. Strong heroine.
2. Considerate hero
3. Good chemistry
4. Interesting premise

Cons:
1. The hero was 'too nice' i.e. he tends to support Gillie unconditionally. Considering the book is set in Regency England, I don't know how believable that is. At times, it feels like he accepts everything just because it's a romance novel.

Overall, a When a Duke Loves a Woman good way to spend an evening.
