The Duke’s Accidental Wife (The Dukes of War, #7)



By Erica Ridley

Miss Katherine Ross is a wealthy, eccentric socialite who knows precisely what she wants: No husband. No children. No candlelit tête-à-tête with the insufferably emotionless Duke of Ravenwood. She’s convinced his heart is ice — until she touches that chiseled chest for herself. One lapse in judgment is all it takes to turn both their lives topsy-turvy…

The Duke of Ravenwood isn’t cold and haughty, but a secret romantic who has always dreamt of marrying for love. Instead, he gets Miss Katherine Ross — a headstrong hoyden intent on unraveling his carefully ordered world. He doesn’t know whether to kiss her or throttle her. Can they survive each other’s company long enough to turn a compromise into love?

My review

Ravenwood and Katherine are like two puzzle pieces: very different, but they complement each other so well. The Dukes of War series had its highs and lows for me. This one is definitely a high. I do like lofty dukes who change because they fall in love with an unsuitable (in their eyes) woman. Katherine is a breath of fresh air in Ravenwoods life and I enjoyed their story.
