The Spinster and the Rake (Never a Wallflower Book 1) Kindle Edition
The marriage game is afoot in this clever blend of My Fair Lady meets Pride and Prejudice with a twist!
Edward Stanhope, the icy Duke of Thornfield, likes his life in a certain order. Give him a strong drink, a good book, and his dog for company, and he’s content. But when he goes to his library and finds a woman sitting in his chair, petting his dog, what starts as a request for her to leave quickly turns to a fiery battle of wits, leading to a steamy kiss that could ruin them both if they were caught.
So of course, damn it all, that’s when Edward’s aunt walks in, and thereafter announces Miss Georgiana Bly is the future Duchess of Thornfield.
Georgiana was content to be a spinster, spending her days reading and working to keep her family out of debt. But now her days are spent locked away with a growly duke, learning how to be the perfect duchess, and her nights spent fighting the undeniable attraction to a man who was never meant for her.
As their wedding day approaches, the attraction between them burns hot and fierce, but is it enough to melt the duke’s chilly facade?

Negatives - not many, maybe the only is that a gentleman with a personality like Edward's is unlikely to be a rake.
Positives - always good to have an educated lead female, although obviously that comes from her mother, as her father is as described a 'spaniel of a man' a wonderful description which is only inaccurate as spaniel are intelligent. - the hero's aunt is not typical of the ton, is helpful and unexpectedly likeable. - the lead male, whilst a duke, has a softer side, and admits he has much to learn, this too is unusual.
Our heroine is educated, a tad opinionated, but wise enough to know she has much to learn to fit into her new life, however she stumbled into it.
Our hero is very careful in his ways, exacting and perhaps driven in his ways. But he has a softer side he loves animals and being outdoors as much as he loves his duty to his station in life. Again one wonders how he became known as a rake, as it doesn't fit how he lives his life.
In the end they both adapt to bring themselves to a happy life.
