The Duke’s Shotgun Wedding

★★★★

 

21531394[1]By Stacy Reid

As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s will remains strong. If the only way to save her family’s estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction – and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself… But she’s made the first move against a very dangerous opponent… For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it’s his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire – even if she means to only marry for his money – would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her… and demands his own satisfaction in return.

 

My review

I knew I would like the book after reading the first sentence: “Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s hand did not waver as she pointed the derringer at the Duke of Calydon.”A duke and a feisty lady, one of my favourite combinations! It’s not a perfect book, but I enjoyed reading it.
