Honored that The Worst Duke in the World is included in this amazing list!
My hero, the Duke of Radcliffe, is a widower with a lively eight-year-old son, Wakefield. Kirkus cheered: “Deftly funny . . . A nice portrait of what courtship is like for a dedicated single parent.”
And from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books: “What this book contains: humor, affection, mutual respect, animals, a consistently amusing child, consent (with regard to kissing and general making out), good food, pretty dresses, a decent amount of end-of-book groveling, discussions about the wives of Henry VIII [and] happy endings all around. . . . A lovely cozy read.”

I loved reading this book so much! . . . The Worst Duke in the World is mostly lighthearted and entertaining, with the sad part thankfully brief. I totally enjoyed the read, the romance, the smiles, and the wonderful happy ever after.
