“You clearly haven’t read many fairy tales, Your Grace. There’s plenty of tragedy, and sometimes the creature is actually an enchanted prince.”

What a breath of fresh air! I needed this book so badly, I can't even tell you how much. Lately I've been in such a book funk that I couldn't seem to find a romance that swept me away and gave me that

Let’s get to the things I like first: a trousers-wearing woman steward who was more than able to manage vast and complex estate with its various tenants and their problems. Considering the period where the story set, it was a big winning point for me. That the staff at the estate rely on Miss Mina Thorne, trusting her to solve the problems was an added point, too. This was a young woman with grit who stood out from the rest at a time when girls‘ only purpose in life was to be

A Duke Changes Everything is the first book in the Duke's Den series by Christy Carlyle. As usual with a book from this author, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am very much looking forward to the rest of the series.

In this particular story, Nicholas (Nick) Lyon is a very successful, self-made wealthy man. He is the second son in line for the Tremayne Dukedom, a role he never wanted to accept. It's one unfortunately which is forced upon him when he hears that his brother has died. There was no love l

A Duke Changes Everything by Christy Carlyle is a fun yet charming historical. Full of surprises, I never knew what to expect next. This was my first novel read by Christy Carlyle. Her writing brought humor and excitement off the pages. I loved it. The heroine in this novel, was bold. But she still held a heart of gold. Her dedication to helping others in need was evident from the beginning. Who knew she would end up saving a notorious Duke from a life of misery. That same Duke saves her, too. I ...more
I really enjoyed this one! Nick is a lovely scarred (physically and mentally), brooding hero with a hard heart. He has no interest in the title he never expected to inherit and as far as he's concerned the sooner he can strip and sell the ducal estate of his childhood, the better. His whole world is set on its axis when he arrives to find his steward is in fact a woman and the daughter of the old steward. Mina is determined to do her duty to the estate and its people, as her late father wanted. ...more

A Duke Changes Everything is the first in the new series The Duke's Den. This is a story of overcoming the harsh memories of the past and finding joy in the present. As a child, Nicholas Lyon has suffered horrific injuries at the hand of his abusive father but time, distance and a thirst for revenge have made Nick the man he is today. He is a successful, self-made owner of a gentlemen's club and now finds himself with a title he never wanted. Determined to erase the past, Nick returns to Enderle ...more

Mina was a sassy little thing, “and you’re difficult and moody.” Mina preferred the heat in his gaze to his teasing tone. She was tired of pretending. “Now that we’ve identified each other’s character flaws, I’ll go back to my room.” Nick doesn't mind doing some begging, “marry me and I’ll take you to every bloody ball in London. We’ll host our own. One a week, if you like. People will grow sick of the Duchess of Tremayne’s balls.” I liked this book, I loved Nick.

I really enjoyed this one. Nick has made a name for himself outside of his family. Until, he's the only one left and has to take on the mantle of Duke. He goes back to the family home full of horrid memories and decides to clear it out and rent it. Then he meets the steward. This was fun and I loved losing myself in the story. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Thanks to Goodreads and Avon for the copy!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was my first book by Christy Carlyle. I really enjoyed the story and cannot wait until the next in the series comes out. The characters were wonderful and I plan to read more by Christy Carlyle in the future.

With great reluctance this couple may just find love and happiness. Love the way the story evolves with a epic conclusion.
