Review by Kim
Summary: Bronte Talbott started following British royalty in the gossip magazines mainly to annoy her stuffy father, but it has now become her not-so-secret guilty pleasure. When she starts dating a charming British doctoral student, she finds out – to her horror – that he is actually the 19th Duke of Northrup and now he wants to make her his duchess!!
My Thoughts: After reading the book description, I assumed this was going to be a lighthearted romp of a book. It was not, however, and ended up being kind of serious, but I enjoyed it any way. At times, I was very frustrated with Bronte – after all, she’s met the perfect man (even though he lied about who he really was), but I guess there wouldn’t have been much of a story at all if she was okay with it. Anyways, it was a good read, but not what I expected at all. As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover – this is not fluff, nor is it chick lit, but it’s a really good read! I’d recommend it to fans of women’s fiction, contemporary fiction, and romance.
My Rating: 4/5
