After reading Romancing the Duke by the same author I was looking forward to this book and...

I liked it but did not love it as much as the previous one.

The Duke of Asbury is looking for a bride to produce an heir and sets up a marriage of convenience with a seamstress named Emma. He has some rules that she must follow, the only problem is that she intends to break them all!

I loved the the character of the Duke, he is great, a stout man with very dry humor and sharp wit. He was scarred in war and the novel feels like a Beauty and the Beast retelling.

The scenes I loved the most were the ones where Duke was in. Some parts of the novel are very different from the standard romance story and it feels fresh and original. I wish there would have been a bit more sexual tension or build up because I lost a little bit of interest in the plot.

Overall I liked it and look forward to reading more from Tessa Dare.
