How to Steal a Duke (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, But Definitely in Less Than a Fortnight)

Fortune is with him when cat burglar Rosalyn Dashner literally falls in his arms so they set off to Cornwall to seek the tome at the home of the mad earl. Ro
How to Steal a Duke
Dominik and Rosalyn make one of my favorite couples ever. She was graceful, playful, and brave. He was haughty, proper, and much to his chagrin, caring. Together they are the perfect pair. With a hint at gothic, and although it’s only a novella, this story packs plenty: romance, nail-biting situations, and an unexpected twist. It was a nice story that I wish would have been longer!

STEALING THE DUKE’S HEART is a compilation of two novellas by the fabulous Shana Galen. Whether you have read these stories or not, just one look at that amazing cover will convince you to read them, or reread them; do judge this book by the cover!

HOW TO STEAL A DUKE (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, but Definitely in Less than a Fortnight) first appeared in the HOW TO FIND A DUKE IN TEN DAYS anthology.

This novella features the very comme il faut Dominick Spencer, Duke of Tremayne, who will

I received a copy from the author; this is my honest review. 4.5 stars
1. How to Steal a Duke *****: Dominick and Rosalyn make the oddest couple ever yet you cannot deny the attraction and the caring they have for each other. Coming from different sides of the track, they make a partnership in every way possible. They actually communicate with each other!
2. Taken by the Duke ****: Henry and Kate had met before in the past; they were close friends. Now they meet as opposites and clash dangerously,

How to Steal a Duke:
Dominick Spencer, the Duke of Tremayne, is searching for “The Duke’s Book of Knowledge” for his favorite professor who is retiring. Some say the book, or rather the books, as there are four volumes, does not exist. Dominick, and his friends Seton and Harry, do believe they exist and have 10 days to find them before Professor Peebles retires. Dominick believes there may be clues at a remote keep, The Temples, on the Cornwall coast. The problem is it’s on the cliffs, partially

This is actually two novellas in one book.

The first - How to Steal a Duke- has tons of potential should the author choose to expand on the story. You can't help but root for the heroine and how she and her family drag the Duke from his comfort zone, almost kicking and screaming. It's a nice turn on a common trope, and I really hope we see more of these characters.

The second - Taken by the Duke - is along the same lines, with a very fun twist. Again, I wish it were longer as the characters are a
Alexandria Tale
It's too short! Both the first and second story are boring. Actually, the premise is quite good, but because they are a novella, everything felt rushed. The chemistry is not there. They just madly in love with each other suddenly. ...more
