I’ve been reading Anna Harrington for a few years and although I’m a few books behind on her releases I was so excited to jump into a new series by her! I think fans of Sabrina Jeffries will like Ms. Harrington’s take on historical romance.
AN INCONVENIENT DUKE brings us our hero Marcus. He’s a former general and after coming back from the war a decorated hero and reluctantly he has taken his title of Duke. But his main purpose right now is to figure out what happened to his sister. Supposedly she died in a horse accident at the park, but what he finds upon his return home spells of foul play and his only source of information is his sister’s best friend. The woman who wrote to give him the news. And she’s avoiding him at all costs, worrying about hiding secrets of her own.
I loved the mystery aspect of this story. It was like reading a good spy historical romance but without the political intrigue. It kept me reading and wanting to know more. Was it hard to figure out? Not really. The clues basically jump out at you. But it was still a nice ride trying to figure out where the danger was coming from and who had killed the Duke’s sister while navigating London society.
Then there’s the romance. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’s an enemies to lovers but there’s definitely some of those types of sparks between these two. They’re both headstrong and strong willed. I couldn’t help but admire the heroine for her secret. I ended up really admiring what she was trying to do and I also enjoyed how the author worked that specific issue in the end for the long term of their relationship. Sorry if that’s vague, I don’t want to spoil the book!
I’m definitely excited for the rest of this series. We got to see a little glimpse of the Duke’s friends and I can tell their books will also be highly entertaining.
