Project Duchess: Sweeping historical romance from the queen of the sexy Regency! (Duke Dynasty) Kindle Edition
If you love Julia Quinn's Bridgerton, you'll fall head over heels for the family at the heart of Sabrina Jeffries' Duke Dynasty series!
'Anyone who loves romance must read Sabrina Jeffries!' Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author
From New York Times bestselling author, and Queen of the sexy Regency romance, Sabrina Jeffries comes a sparkling series about an oft-widowed mother's grown children, who blaze through society in their quest for the truth about their fathers . . . and in the process find that love just might conquer all . . . For fans of Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn and Tessa Dare.
A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher 'Grey' Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. He has little time for finding a wife, but when his mother is widowed again, fate throws the delightfully unconventional Beatrice Wolfe into his path.
Beatrice gave up on romance long ago and, at first, meeting the arrogant Duke of Greycourt does little to change her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest 'project' - schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut - and Beatrice begins to glimpse the real Grey beneath the charming veneer. But once Grey starts digging into her family's secrets, she must decide whether her loyalties lie with her family...or with the man whose lessons capture her heart.
'Bestselling Jeffries brilliantly launches her new Duke Dynasty series with another exemplary Regency-set historical brilliantly sourced from her seemingly endless authorial supply of fascinating characters and compelling storylines' Booklist

I've never given a book a 1 star review and only a couple have rated a 2 for me. Having said that, I am also very stingy about giving out 5 stars reviews; but, for me, this book is absolutely worth 5 stars! It is pretty much everything that I love in a HR. First of all, I love the characters, both main and secondary. I so love the begining of a series, when you get introduced to all those secondary characters and you know there's a book coming about them and you are intrigued to read it - well, I definitely felt that here. I loved Grey's whole family and I can't wait to get drawn more into their word through future books.
This book also contains my favourite kind of h and H - the one's who are probably not historically accurate, but have grit and gumption and are not always seen for their true worth. Both main characters bond over the loss of their family at a young age, and both are outspoken especially with each other. I love their banter - banter is another one of my favourite parts of a HR! I do especially also love witty writers and although that is not really Ms. Jeffries writing style, the story is not lacking for it because of the development of the characters over the arc of the plot, which is masterfully done as usual. Character development also rates high on my list and I especially love characters who are honest with each other and where their relationship drives the plot of the story. In this book, the plot advances naturally through the growth of the relationship between Bea and Grey - both of whom are wary of the other, and both of whom are wondering if maybe Joshua is involved in the uncle's death, but not wanting to give anything away. I'm so not a fan of stories where friends and family contrive to separate lovers through overused plot devices of spurned exes, greedy family members, notes gone astray, eavesdropping, jumping to conclusions - basically with characters who don't talk to each other. And I'm happy to say that is not the case here. This family does contain an idiotic Aunt, who is determined to marry Grey to her daughter by announcing their marriage in the paper (which Grey quickly takes care of). It might not have been a truly necessary plot device, but this stunt does prove to Beatrice and her brother that Grey is a man of his word. I thought that all the interactions and conversations - and each of the characters themselves - tied the whole story together so completely. I just LOVED it!
Bea and Grey do get their HEA, but the uncles death is not solved, so this intrigue carries on to the next book. I'll say it again - 5 star read for sure!!!!
Both Heroine and Hero are decent folk with pasts that keep them guarded but as the plot thickens and unfolds, their romance develops.
Enjoyable read and great introduction to other characters in this series
