Book Review: The Trouble With Dukes


The gossips whisper that the new Duke of Murdoch is a brute, a murderer, and even worse—a Scot. They say he should never be trusted alone with a woman. But Megan Windham sees in Hamish something different, someone different.

No one was fiercer at war than Hamish MacHugh, though now the soldier faces a whole new battlefield: a London Season. To make his sisters happy, he'll take on any challenge—even letting their friend Miss Windham teach him to waltz. Megan isn't the least bit intimidated by his dark reputation, but Hamish senses that she's fighting battles of her own. For her, he'll become the warrior once more, and for her, he might just lose his heart.

I do like my historical romance especially when the heroine is a strong, feisty woman.  One thing that I have noticed however is that all the women are beautiful and perfect.  I always wondered what happened to those women who weren't.  Did they not find love?  Well in THE TROUBLE WITH DUKES I have had my question answered.

Megan is a beautiful red head but her eyes are not that good.  In fact, she wears glasses which really endeared her to me as I was one of those kids that were teased for wearing glasses.   She is beautiful, smart but was unfortunately rather naive when she was younger which has her a bit of a pickle now.  

Hamish is a true gentleman who had no intention of ever being stuck with an English title.  He doesn't have a lot of use for the English especially with their games and gossip but he will do almost anything to make his sisters happy.

I really enjoyed this book and I just loved Hamish and Megan.  The secondary characters are also well done with a lot of depth to them and they add a lot to the story.  Their story flows with great pacing and witty dialogue.  I think that any of my readers who enjoy historical romance should pick up this book especially since it is the beginning of  a new series.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
