The Duke I Tempted
The Duke I Tempted | Scarlett Peckham
6 posts | 6 read | 3 to read
Hes controlled. Meticulous. Immaculate. No one would expect the proper Duke of Westmead to be a member of Londons most illicit secret club. Least of all: his future wife. Having overcome financial ruin and redeemed his family name to become the most legendary investor in London, the Duke of Westmead needs to secure his holdings by producing an heir. Which means he must find a wife who wont discover his secret craving to spend his nights on his knees or make demands on his long scarred-over heart. Poppy Cavendish is not that type of woman. An ambitious self-taught botanist designing the garden ballroom in which Westmead plans to woo a bride, Poppy has struggled against convention all her life to secure her hard-won independence. She wants the capital to expand her exotic nursery business not a husband. But there is something so compelling about Westmead, with his starchy bearing and impossibly kind eyes -- that when an accidental scandal makes marriage to the duke the only means to save her nursery, Poppy worries she wants more than the title he is offering. The arrangement is meant to be just business. A greenhouse for an heir. But Poppy yearns to unravel her husbands secrets and to tempt the duke to risk his heart.

Not your typical brain candy romance, but well written and with interesting characters. Poppy Cavendish is a decidedly modern woman in 18th century England, but that is part of her charm. Just be aware: if your taste in romances runs to chaste stories, this is not for you.

This is not your mama's romance novel. First of all,it Doesn't end when the characters get married. I'd call that the 2/3rds point. Also, the female character is super assertive business owner. Both characters are well developed and their sex life is fun.

(My view tonight as I write this review..😂)
LOVED this book and I highly recommend if you enjoy Victorian Era romance. The heroine is a botanist, and this new author (this being her first published novel!) has definitely done her research. ❤️

Peri and I just got back from meeting a friend and her pup for a walk at the muggy and mosquito infested nature park. Not the most pleasant walk. Looking forward to some reading time.

#currentlyreading this historical romance with some bdsm elements. #romantsy

This one is a debut novel and its not your typical historical romance. It does have BDSM elements but its the circuitous courtship between Archer and Poppy that kept my attention. I definitely would recommend this one plus the cover is just gorgeous😍
