An impulsive decision leaves Gray naked and alone on a beach. But, the Duke who caused it all could just be her ticket to a better life, and a more romantic ending than she’d originally anticipated.
This was an incredibly cute and sweet contemporary story. One that was far too easy to read, but I probably also won’t forget for a while. Because, it was just… well… sweet. And innocent and just so supremely easy. I was really sad that it was over so quickly… I enjoy the sweet and easy tone to this storyline.
I really wasn’t expecting a contemporary romance or an easy read in the Four Dukes and a Devil collection. I thought there’d be a little more historical factors or supernatural tones to this storyline. But I loved that it did exist. That I got the pleasure of reading such a fun and humorous little story. one which features a meddling dog. Because, all good stories require a meddling puppy if we’re being honest here.
One of my favourite factors about this book is the fact that although it is in a romance collection it wasn’t overly lustful. There are sometimes when that’s exactly what I want. But reading this, I loved that it was just a sweet courting, not an intense romance. It’s nice to have something different in my reading every now and again…
