Reluctant Duchess (#02 in Ladies Of The Manor Series)

Roseanna White
A Riveting Edwardian Series Set among Britain's High Society

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.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has 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 Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when Rowena's father tries to trap Brice into marrying his daughter, Brice makes a surprising decision.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she's reluctant to marry a notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in 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.

The Reluctant Duchess is the sequel to The Lost Heiress, and has all the same strengths-and weaknesses. Americans don't seem to understand that a title is a title, not a first name. Leaving that aside, The Reluctant Duchess was very good. 

It's a twist on the marriage of convenience plot, with Brice, the Duke of Nottingham, offering to marry Lady Rowena Kinnaird after she is threatened by a "suitor", and because God told him to. Lady Rowena knows she has to marry, and soon, but can't stomach the thought of what goes with marriage-not after her recent attack by her "suitor" (which, of course, Brice knows nothing about). This is a picture of God's love in action, and it's refreshing to see Christian fiction which is actually Christian. More, please!

So there is the married-strangers plot and the jealous-ex subplot. There is also a subplot which follows over from the first book around some missing jewels. Both Brice and Rowena find themselves in the middle of a plot to locate and steal the jewels . . . only Brice has them very well hidden. This provides an excellent suspense plot to go along with the developing relationship between Brice and Rowena. 

The Reluctant Duchess can easily be read as a standalone novel. Recommended for historical romance fans.
