Nov 25, Ivy H rated it really liked it Shelves: Regency Rakes 3 books. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. She joined Romance Writers of New Zealand a Chanxe is something Wendy has always found time for, and as an incurable romantic, the romance genre was a natural fit.

Will her past come back to cause Daniel has to marry Eve. He came off as cold at first, but it wasn’t long before we see more of him.

When he learns that Eva has been threatened in her house, Daniel returns to Stratton Lodge to provide her protection. Found a few errors closer to the back, but nothing that should prevent anyone from reading it. First, I detest stupid heroines, and the idiot who accepts a dance with a man who attempted to rape her, against the express wishes of her husband, is stupid.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. It isn’t an easy adjustment for either of them at first but they really do learn to not only get along but to protect and understand each other. I received an eBook copy from the author for the purpose of an honest review. Their chemistry bed reflects both their selflessness and love as they grow.

The characters were well developed and it had plenty of action to keep it interesting. This would give them a chance to ‘serve’ their country and might even be the making of them? The story line and the characters are well chamce, the requisite villains and the supportive characters are well done, and the travel toward the HEA moves swiftly without a lot of extraneous padding and unnecessary details.


He had told her that in there, they were just Eva and Daniel. Can they make their marriage real despite coming from two completely different worlds?

Duchess By Chance

Eva soon realized there was not much to learn about social chitchat. His father was a mean man and Daniel had that he was to be duchees upon his death. Because Eva’s father is so abusive to her and her and her younger brother, Eva finds it hard to trust her husband.

It was nice to see Eva blossom as a duchess and embrace her new role but then her nasty old father and his lecherous friend had to blackmail her by threatening her younger brother with harm.

She hasn’t had the best life, with her awful family, but I went into this book with high expectations. The constant threat of Eva’s old suitor, who refused to give up, kept me on the edge of my seat.

Want to Read saving…. Daniel and Eva are forced into an unexpected marriage over a game of cards played by their father’s years ago And yeah, I must admit, there are some typos but I’m not a native so it might be that I overlooked some and yet, I wasn’t that annoyed by that. However, her courage falters when she faces the devilishly handsome but unyielding Duke who is now her husband. It does, however, have a few detailed erotic scenes which I could have done without, but cchance as many as in some romances and they don’t drag on for pages and pages.

Also there is a great cast of characters. The bottom line is that Duchess by Chance is a lovely debut to a historical romance series. His character was always consistent and never wavered. Yet somehow, despite all these awesome parts, the whole falls a little short. Cute story, but something that I may hav Historical English romance with velpa arranged marriage set-up that turns from bitterness to friendship to love in a steady meaningful way.


I loved that the romance and love blossomed at a great pace where the reader could see them fall in love in their vellla time. She was a strong character. I loved the main couple and the story was easy to follow but not boring in the slightest. I look forward to reading more from Wendy!! The Dowager Duchess and her friends help launch her into society. Aug 31, Tin rated it really liked it Shelves: Occasional slips into first person POV despite the book being in third.

It’s all in there and I loved reading this novel. The hero was anger personified and the heroine felt like a caricature of the timid female. This story was entertaining and good. I have to say that the cover was the best thing about this book.

On the other hand, Eva finds Daniel to be the most handsome man, looking like a gentleman should. Eventually, the H was able to help both the heroine and her brother and the villains got exactly what they deserved.

I thought she was great and I really liked her. My only real problem with the narrative was the author’s consistent use of subjective pronouns where they should have been objective pronouns. I found that our heroine was a bit too timid at first but I loved her in the end. Unfortunately, I do not enjoy the explicit description of sex.

There is an evil family and an obsessed stalker to make the story move forward because the Duke and Eva would have taken years to build their marriage, but it is quickly made more intimate by threats to Eva.

May 23, Virginia Tican rated it liked it. There’s always just enough romance with a bit of steam and several twists and turns. I give this 5 out of 5 Shields!
