“I find Miss Fanshawe to be quite charming—for an American.”—The Prince Regent
Hadrian Ames, the Duke of Clayton, needs a bride. He even has the perfect one picked out. That is, until he meets the lovely, free-spirited Natalie Fanshawe. She’s the opposite of what a man of his high rank should desire in a wife—an outspoken American who has never even set foot in a London ballroom.
But Natalie doesn’t have time to be swept off her feet by a handsome duke who must be a spoiled scoundrel like every other British lord. And she couldn’t care less about Hadrian’s title. After all, it’s not as if he actually worked to attain his wealth and status. He surely can’t understand what it’s like to be a busy woman, planning to open a school while trying to reunite a six-year-old orphan with his English relatives. Nevertheless, Hadrian launches his campaign to win her heart. Can the utterly delightful American beauty ever find a way to love him…despite his being a duke?

“You are the equal of any noble. I won’t have you acting against your principles.”



There was something that kept reading to the end, but then again there was several things that did not work for me.

I liked Hadrian a lot, he was probably my favorite part of the book. Natalie just didn’t do it for me, she was just meh. Their story had low to slim amount of chemistry between them. The sex scenes were not where they should be, and one was just plain awkward.

Their story had a good premise, it should of been really good. The delivery was just off for me. There was several things that were told to us but never really shown. There was just one thing that made me a little upset. There was a rape threat made, and it was just not any reason for it.






He set his jaw. “Society will accept you. I’ll make certain they do.”
Smiling wistfully, she shook her head in gentle exasperation. “You have it all wrong, Hadrian. It isn’t whether English society will accept me. It’s whether I will accept English Society.”
