A Reader's Opinion: IF THE DUKE DEMANDS by Anna Harrington



A READER'S OPINION

Charm, humor, and sizzling romance are blended into this well-written historical romance.

IF THE DUKE DEMANDS is the first book I've read by Anna Harrington, and I thought it was delightful. I enjoyed the author's writing style and how well she blended the romance, drama, angst, and humor. Normally I find one overpowers the other, but not the case here. Miranda and Sebastian are fascinating characters, even if they do make a few decisions that had me wanting to beat their heads in . . . until the author pulled them back and made me fall in love with them again. The building chemistry between these two is fantastic! Miranda has to wonder if her former love is the man of her dreams while Sebastian isn't sure how to handle the growing, and unexpected, feelings he has for Miranda.

Fans of historical romance are bound to enjoy Anna Harrington's storytelling style.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

A LESSON IN SEDUCTION . . . Miranda Hodgkins has only ever wanted one thing: to marry Robert Carlisle. And she simply can't wait a moment longer. During the Carlisle family masquerade ball, Miranda boldly sneaks into his bedchamber with seduction on her mind. Soon she's swept into rock-hard arms for the most breathtaking kiss of her life. But when the masks come off, she's horrified to find herself face-to-face with Sebastian, the Duke of Trent-Robert's formidable older brother. Shocked to find Miranda in his bed, Sebastian quickly offers her a deal to avoid scandal: He'll help her win his brother's heart if she'll find him the perfect wife. But what begins as a simple negotiation soon spirals out of control. For the longer this reformed rake tries to make a match for Miranda, the more he wants to keep her all to himself.
