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

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

$17.99

Paperback
: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.

Brilliant!!!
5 stars By Hannah, Sep 19 2016
This author is fast becoming one of my absolute favourites! Reading her books is like being transported for hours to another world - the sights, smells, language and culture all come alive as you read. But more than that, her characters feel so real. They have such depth to them that it's hard not to fall in love with them, or hate them, as it may be. 

I really appreciated the way the characters wrestled with the issues of worth, the supernatural, love, the effects of abuse and cultural differences. They weren't glossed over or given a pat answer but rather really delved into before finding answers, taking the characters - and me - on a journey. 

Couldn't recommend this book more highly and cannot wait for the next one!

One of my all-time favourites
5 stars By Katie Donovan, May 31 2016
I soooo did not want this book to end.  It has earned a place as one of my all-time favourite historical romances - for the writing, the plot, the characters, and because it was so much more than just a romance.  It really deserves to be called a 'love story', because when Brice Myerston offers marriage to Rowena Kinnaird in order to protect her, he commits to loving his wife by his actions and trusting that his heart will catch on in time.  But the overall plot is actually much more complex than this; a rich layering of circumstances that threaten their physical safety and test and refine their commitment to love and trust one another. I loved the way Brice and Rowena confronted the misunderstandings, challenges, and threats they encountered, rather than ignoring them. They grew together through them rather than letting them drive them apart.  This was in large part due to Brice's willingness to examine his actions objectively and obey the Lord's prompting when every instinct was to do the opposite, and made for some of the most memorable and beautiful scenes I have read.  More than any hero I have ever come across, he really modeled Christ's sacrificial love for His bride.  This novel is the second in the series, and although it can be read as a stand alone, the story related to the Fire Eyes begins in the first novel in the series

Loved this!!
4 stars By Rochelle, NSW, May 09 2016
Roseanna M. White is quickly becoming one of my favourite writers.
I really enjoyed The Lost Heiress and couldn't wait for The Reluctant Duchess to be published.
I've finished it and loved it! The continuing story of 'the Fire Eyes' diamonds, a noble and obedient Duke, a heart that was broken restored and some amazing lessons of Love learnt.
Twists and turns, deception and intrigue, tears and love. Not only for the Duke and Duchess but for the supporting characters too.
You'll quickly fall in love with the Ladies of the Manor Series. I'm looking forward to the next one which is going to be The Dukes sisters, Ella's story.
