A DUKE TO DIE FOR is the first in Amelia Grey’s Rogues’ Dynasty books. A DUKE TO DIE FOR is about Duke Blakewell and Henrietta Tweed, while the next two will be about Blackwell’s two cousins (Lord Raceworth and Lord Morgangale).

Great fun sums up this story quite well. Despite his initial bluster, Blakewell isn’t quite as bad as his reputation makes him out to be. At least he takes his role as Duke quite seriously (even if he is a tad absentminded), so maybe it's more he hasn’t had time to keep up his reputation as the Devilish Duke. Henrietta, for all her superstitions, is rather level-headed and mature. She’s only nineteen, but shows more sense then many of the older people of the story.

As for the curse, it truly was a self-fulfilling prophecy, I think. Sure enough, if you go looking for trouble, you can subscribe just about any ordinary event to it. What I was really pleased by was Blakewell and how quickly he understood Henrietta. There wasn’t any misunderstandings between them, and even if he didn’t always believe what Henrietta said (who would believe a curse was put upon a seven year old girl?), he didn’t condescend or make light of it.

I look forward, eagerly, to the next two books although I have a feeling Blakewell might keep my heart.
