[ Review Posted: Jan 05, 2013 ] - See all my reviews
Elizabeth Boyle's latest offering is a delightful and very romantic historical romance you won't want to miss!

Tabitha Timmons is on her way to London to meet her betrothed (arranged by her uncle) as a condition of her receiving her inheritance, when she and her companions stopped by the inn for the night. Hungry, she slipped downstairs for a bite when who should she encounter but the arrogant Duke of Preston. Somehow, they shared a meal together, and awareness and attraction grew between them. But Tabitha is to marry someone else or forfeit her inheritance. Would she remain practical or follow her heart?

It was easy to see why Tabitha would fall in love with Preston during that night at the inn when they dined together. Even for me, there was something magical about that scene. Maybe because it was there that we see something of the real Preston, the Preston who was haunted by his childhood events, and who allowed himself to acknowledge that he yearned for something that Tabitha had inadvertently opened his eyes to. It was also easy to see why Preston should lose his heart that night, because Tabitha was unique and refreshing, a novelty he hadn't encountered before. Or maybe, because it was the easy rapport between them, the companionable conversation, the way they became friends even as attraction sizzled between them.

I truly enjoyed ALONG CAME A DUKE and didn't want it to end. The next book in the Rhymes with Love series, And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake, features Tabitha's friend, Daphne Dale, who's helping out with the preparations for Tabitha's wedding, so I hope we'll also see more of Preston and Tabitha!

Their little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation.

A heart torn apart. Ethan's vigilante plan for justice just got a sexy wrinkle...
