“THE DUKE HEIST is a light hearted and fun romance.”

~ Under the Covers

I love trying out new-to-me historical romance authors more than any other genre.  Maybe that’s because I somehow generally end up liking what I read.  And that was the case with THE DUKE HEIST.

I admit I’ve had my eye on Erica Ridley’s books for some time but never took the plunge until I saw this beautiful cover. I just couldn’t resist it. Even though the writing style is goos, this book does have a bit of a slow start. But I was intrigued by the premise.

The heroine comes from a family that is not seen kindly by society. She’s decided to cozy up to our hero, a duke with no money looking to marry someone and trade title for fortune, because his family stole a painting from her family and she wants to steal it back.

As you can see, both of them have their issues and their relationship shouldn’t work on paper.  But as they get to know each other and let their guards and façade down, I thought they were just perfect for each other.

The romance certainly has more of a slow burn quality and for me the pacing was a little affected by that.

In the end, THE DUKE HEIST is a light hearted and fun romance. It’s also left me incredibly intrigued to see the books about the rest of the Wynchester siblings because I just know they’ll be a lot of fun.
