The Duke Who Stole My Heart is the sweet/tame version of The Duke’s Bride.

My dearest brother,

Harry, if you receive this letter it will be because I’ve eloped with an honorable American shipping merchant and will soon be sailing far from England to his home in the Americas. This decision doesn’t come easily. I’ve tried my best to convince your dear friend, the Duke of Ashten, to live again and remove himself from his own self-imposed exile, but in doing so I have instead been reminded of the day he first stole my heart. Eight years old, I was at the time, six years younger than the two of you. I adored chasing you both down to the river, climbing trees, and watching you fish. That was when I first fell in love with Ashten, but unfortunately that love is not reciprocated, even though I wish it were.

Our dear sister posts this letter to you on my behalf as my valise is now packed and I’m about to escape from under Mama’s eagle eyes for Gretna Green. An adventure awaits me, one hopefully without a brooding duke and a battle of wills at play.

Please, remain safe during this dreadful war. I miss you, terribly.

Your ever-loving sister, Ellie.

    There is nothing better than a good book to cure an insomniac. This did more than that.the characters were well developed and acted . I was engrossed in the storyline .i failed to accept a timed event. I will certainly recommend this novel to anyone who loves good clean reading historical fiction.
  • Great Story

    What to do when a man you have loved almost all your life, will not notice you are now grown? Take drastic measures! Ellie, sister to Harry, the Duke of Ashten's best friend, knew what she wanted and that was Pierce! The Duke had closed himself away after the death of his fiance and not come back out into society. Ellie plots a scheme to get he out of exile and make him take notice of her. She hopes if she pretends to elope with another man, he will come to his senses! A truly delightful story that was a lot of fun with Ellie's family and other characters. Now I want to read about Ellie's siblings as they find their happily ever after!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
