Wow! A starred review from Booklist for The Worst Duke in the World!
After discovering a long-lost letter from Titus Penhallow to her grandmother Charity, penniless orphan Jane Kent is suddenly introduced to a world of material comforts when she becomes the newest member of the Penhallow family. To fill in the gaps in her education, Jane begins taking lessons from the local vicar, who is also tutoring Wakefield Farr, the young son of Anthony Farr, the duke of Radcliffe. After his last disastrous marriage, Anthony has vowed never to wed again, yet much to his surprise, Anthony quickly finds himself falling for the refreshingly different Jane. There are pigs, pumpkins, and pamphlets, oh my! And a charming, fairy tale-like sensibility powering the latest blissfully romantic addition to Berne’s Penhallow series, following Engaged to the Earl (2020). Filled with endearingly quirky characters, plenty of droll wit, and a number of clever literary grace notes, including a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it homage to the most perfect porcine-inspired piece of children’s literature ever written, this is a transporting, transcendent triumph.
