READ AND REVIEW
HEIR TO THE DUKE (THE DUKE'S SON #1) BY JANE ASHFORD
Release Date: January 5, 2016
Nathaniel Gresham, the handsome Viscount Hargove, lives a life devoted to familial duty. As his father's eldest son, Nathaniel's identity remains the "heir to the Duke of Langford." But this quiet, restrained life changes the minute he marries sweet Lady Violet Devere.
Oppressed by her family all her life, Violet is longing for her marriage vows to be spoken. Though her arranged marriage to Nathaniel was not a match made for love, they're both looking forward to the comparative freedom of married life. And Violet is determined to show Nathaniel how to enjoy it, both in and out of the bedroom.
REVIEW: HEIR TO THE DUKE (THE DUKE'S SON #1) BY JANE ASHFORD
Heir to the Duke by Jane Ashford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have been a skeptic about Ms. Ashford's stories. For me the few stories I have read by her have come across as emotionless. Previous characters have been cold and indecisive. I received an ARC of Heir to the Duke in exchange for an honest review. This novel surprised me a great deal. Ms. Ashford did a complete 180 with her latest novel. She created characters with emotional appeal, a story that spoke to me from the very beginning and a romance that is worthy of fairy tale status. There were a few areas with inconsistency issues but not enough to take away from the overall effect of the story.
