Any Duchess Will Do
Author: Tessa Dare
Series: Spindle Cove #4
Published by Avon
Released: May 28, 2013
Genres: Historical Romance
“…funny at times, sexy at others, but enthralling every step of the way. I did not want to look away from the magic they were making together.”
~ Under the Covers
Tessa Dare’s stories always shoot up to the top of my favorites lists. All the time. Every time. ANY DUCHESS WILL DO is the perfect example of the beautiful stories she can weave and how much she can suck you into the worlds in her head. She has a talent for storytelling like very few other authors have these days in historical romance.
Griff and Pauline are extraordinary characters. They both felt real and I immediately took a like to them. Griff is the perfect hero for us readers that crave a damaged hero to “fix” and Pauline was the perfect fix. He’s the big Duke that won’t get married, but is not a rake any longer either. Things that happened in his past have changed him completely. Then his mother kidnaps him and takes him to Spindle Cove to literally “pick” a wife from a room full of women.
Of course Griff just wants to make his mother miserable and picks the less likely to be able to pass as a duchess. The barmaid. Pauline Simms is the daughter of a farmer, a girl with a big heart who just wants to take care of her sister. She’s strong and selfless a lot of times.
The adventures these two got in where funny at times, sexy at others, but enthralling every step of the way. I did not want to look away from the magic they were making together.
Now as a personal note and request to the author here….We want and need more Spindle Cove! This is one of my favorite series and I can’t make myself understand that there won’t be any more. Please keep writing.
He did not want to share her with a sofa or a carpet, or even something so slight as a chair.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
