The Reluctant Duchess by Roseanna M. White - Review

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: April 5, 2016
Number of pages: 384
Genre: Historical Fiction
Series: Ladies of the Manor #2

Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough—not for her father, not for the man she thought she’d marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she’s willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar and the men who have jeopardized her life.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has suddenly found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of his neighbor, Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when the moody Earl of Lochabar tries to trap Brice into marrying Rowena, Brice finds he’s not as opposed to the idea as he expected to be.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she’s reluctant to resort to marrying a notorious flirt just to gain his English home. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she ’fears she’s about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.

What did I think of this book:
This was a great book maybe even better than the first if that is possible. I really enjoyed getting to  read another installment in the Ladies of the Manor Series. I loved that is is sent in the Scottish Highlands as I am drawn to books from there. Lady Rowena character was one I really felt for at times. She always felt like she was not good enough when she was really more than enough, she was a good person. I also liked the Duke and how he became a hero. The descriptions the author gave us were very good, you could really feel as if you were a part of the story. There was a little mystery as well as romance which added to the story. This book is a part of a series but it can be read as a stand alone. I myself am looking forward to book number three.
