Gillie Trewlove knows what a stranger's kindness can mean, having been abandoned on a doorstep as a baby and raised by the woman who found her there. So, when suddenly faced with a soul in need at her door—or the alleyway by her tavern—Gillie doesn't hesitate. But he's no infant. He's a grievously injured, distractingly handsome gentleman who doesn't belong in Whitechapel, much less recuperating in Gillie's bed.
Being left at the altar is humiliating; being rescued from thugs by a woman—albeit a brave and beautiful one—is the pièce de résistance to the Duke of Thornley's extraordinarily bad day. After nursing him back from the brink, Gillie agrees to help him comb London's darker corners for his wayward bride. But every moment together is edged with desire and has Thorne rethinking his choice of wife. Yet Gillie knows the aristocracy would never accept a duchess born in sin. Thorne, however, is determined to prove to her that no obstacle is insurmountable when a duke loves a woman.
So What Did I Think Of When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath?
T his was a great story that was easy to get into. From the beginning my interest was peaked cause I love a good come up story and I was very curious to see how things would work out with the couple.
The writing was super smooth and the build up to them getting together was really nice. I really enjoyed how strong and unique characters that played so well off each other. The romance between them was interesting and exciting leading me on a journey that sizzled. Even though they both came from very different worlds, they had this instant connection but it was great that they didn’t instantly act on those feelings and gave it time to develop and grow into more.
Overall I enjoyed reading When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath. I came away happy and satisfied with how things turned out.
