    It has been years since I read any historical romance novels so when I read the blurb of this book and found it intriguing I decided to give it a go Catherine Malboeuf the daughter of a French man falsely known as a pirate and an English woman grew up with nightly stories of her great grandmother's tiara Armed with those stories and the hopes of finding her great grandmother's journal to find the hidden tiara she embarks on a journey to England to find it the tiara and reclaim ownership of her mother's childhood home Walsley ManorNicholas Adair the Duke of Boulstridge is the stubborn owner of Walsley Manor having bought it after Catherine mother's cousin managed to get in debt and it was taken by the government A lot happens in this book and I was glad there was no insta love Lots of mystery and twists so it isn't really just a romance novel which I was pleased about If you are looking for a romancemystery book set in historical and has a regencyvictorian era air to it this is a great one to read This arc was kindly provided by Entangled Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you

    HAPPY RELEASE DAYCatherine is something else She's certainly no lady at least she doesn't act like one Nick the Duke knows how ladies should act and none of the ones he's met ever had a cutlass in their skirtShe's pretty intriguing that way He never knows what she's going to do next Catherine really tries to be the perfect lady but she slips every now and then She takes her shoes off every chance she gets She's also been known to slip in through a window Yes definitely not a lady She makes an offer on her ancestral homethat he has bought and refurbished and he refuses After seeing the cutlass Nick makes a wager If she gets a marriage proposal from an upstanding member of the ton he'll let her have the estate These two dance around their urges over and over again That's always fun to readwondering which will fall first He keeps saving her from committing an unforgivable faux pas while in public and he's hard pressed to keep her reputation from falling into tatters Besides trying to earn a proposal that will win her the wager Catherine is searching for a pink diamond tiara that is supposedly hidden in the manor Unfortunately someone else is also searching and Catherine is in danger There was a nice balance of mystery suspense and some intense UST in this one I enjoyed it very much and recommend it to you Thank you NetGalley and Entangled Publishing Scandalous for the opportunity to read this book

    How to Beguile a Duke by Ally BroadfieldI love when I start a book and I know how it is going to end That may sound strange but with historical romance novels you KNOW there has to be a happily ever after We meet Catherine and Nick and you know they will end up together but it’s the pieces of the puzzle that is so exciting How will their adventure play out? Will he chase her? Will she chase him? Will they have exploding passion? Will they have insurmountable odds to get over in order to be together? That is what was running though my head when I started this bookso I hope that doesn’t spoil it for anyone but within the first chapter you know these two are fated for each otherWe meet Catherine who has a wonderful past She was raised in the Bahamas and New Orleans and is not a shrinking violet She is familiar with weapons is bold as brass and has an irresistible spirit She has come to England for a couple of purposes She has come for the London season to look for a husband as her family is uite wealthy yet not titled She has also come to find her Grandmother’s diary and the missing tiara heirloom hidden in the ancestral home Walsley of her English mother She also has instructions from her father to purchase the estate at any cost the new owner will nameNick is the new owner of Walsley and he has no interest in selling the estate he has restored to perfection I immediately recognized that he was that kind of Duke Imperious staid and very concerned with conventions Their first introduction was hilarious and I loved the sparks that flew off the two of them Nick is not the kind of man to make a wager but something about Catherine makes him reckless He gives her the diary with the promise it’s a joint investigation He also makes an outrageous wager with her If she can secure an engagement with a titled gentleman he will sell her Walsley Both arrive in London for the season and are in contact with each other as much as they can be with the restrictions placed by society on unmarried young ladies Catherine is being chaperoned by the Hartley’s They are to introduce her to the whirl of the season Rumours swirl that Catherine’s father was a pirate who kidnapped her mother which makes for great gossip but not the best recommendation to suitors Nick believes that even though she acts the perfect lady her true nature will explode out of her before the end of the season That she is too full of life to be contained She does have a few touch and go moments of faux pas that make you realize how hard it must be to fit into the rigid nature of the ton Nick is a freuent visitor and companion at the society events They meet up to share clues from the diary As they investigate however it becomes apparent that someone else knows about the diary and is out to get Catherine Nick swoops down like a hawk to protect her It brings them closer and they move from adversaries and reluctant partners to interest in each otherWe learn that Nick is not without his own baggage His father was a beast who flaunted his mistress so flagrantly around ton events that eventually he was discarded by the ton Nick lives a controlled life in order to never be like his father He has determined that he will never marry and procreate so that his father’s genes die with him So it throws a kink in the attraction and interest he has for Catherine He is fighting a battle with himselfCatherine’s hunt for a groom isn’t going as planned as her past keeps the titled gentlemen away She finds it humiliating and thankfully Nick is there to pick up the pieces What I liked so much about these two was that they spoke to each other as a man and woman Catherine was not impressed with his title and rarely showed him deference The two of them spar and insult each other yet they watch out for each other and develop a care that intensifies as the story progressesThere are not a lot of love scenes in the story but the few are so lovely It made you want the inevitable ending that you expect They are so perfect for each other You want Nick to bend and propose to Catherine and they can live in Walsley together She makes him loose and laughs and he is finally fascinated by a woman who has intelligence and beautyThe plot about the diary and tiara is interesting and moves the story along There are villains and tense moments but you never really worry because you know that Nick will protect CatherineI really enjoyed this book It’s a mysterious ualifier when a book is rated a five There is just something special about the story the characters the adventure that makes you breathless to read and then sad when the story is over This is that kind of story I couldn’t wait to keep reading and when I finished I had to sit back and savour the story but still felt like I wished the adventure of Catherine and Nick wasn’t finished That’s when you know it’s a special bookReviewed for wwwkiltsandswordscom

    45 This is the first book where the review will be published first in English and then in Portuguese This is because the ebook was sent to me for reading and subseuent publication of opinion directly by Entangled since the book will be released by the 8th of DecemberLet's talk about the book? Let's goFirst of all I have to say that I liked it a lot is an understatement The characters the plot locations descriptions and the fact that it is a period of romance only helped that I liked it so much While I was reading I was discovering many similarities with another writer that I love Julia uinn I do not know if I'm right or not but what is certain is that the kind of writing that this author Ally adopted grabbed me from the first sentence in the PrologueThe characters? They are funny smart sensitive and very intense Catherine is the main character as well as the Duke of Boulstridge Nick These are the two that make up the romantic couple and they are the main reason that I have enjoyed this deliciousstory so much Catherine has English origins and since childhood always dreamed of returning to London and meet Wasley Mannor the mansion that once belonged to her mother’s family However the walls of Wasley Mannor hide a treasure A tiara that was given to her maternal great grandmotherOpinião completa em

    I love a historical novel that can take me back to a bygone era where everything was so proper where a lady could not be alone with a man without a chaperone where there was a strict code of conduct of manners and ways a lady should behave where your heritage and standing in society meant everything I also love a story with mystery and a few twists and turns and How the Beguile a Duke really fit the bill for meNick was an intriguing character who at every turn tried to be far removed from the memory of his father and his philandering ways He had shut himself off from the prospect of marriage deeming himself unsuitable husband material fearing that his fathers legacy meant that he would end up betraying his future wife Of course when Catherine comes on the scene he gradually finds himself rethinking his ideas of marriage As the title of the book says she beguiles him and I was totally charmed by the transition in his characterWhen reading a romance novel from this era one of the aspects that I love about this time period is how the restrictions on the contact that the courting couples had would build the sexual tension between the two through stolen kisses and glances hidden touches and embraces Of course it also meant that you could end up marrying a boring dead fish for a husband but that was definitely not the case with Nick and Catherine was a perfect match for himCatherine was just the person to bring Nick out of his shell and I loved how she gave him the belief in himself to commit to a relationship She really charmed her way into my heart and i loved her independent streak and her fearless nature At times she put herself in danger not thinking before she acted but it all added to the drama which kept me entertained till the end Catherine told it like it was She was unconventional and a breath of fresh air in the stuffy and staid world that was London society at that time She held true to her belief that you should marry for love and would accept nothing less after seeing the loving example that her parents had set for herThis story really drew me in and I loved the mystery and intrigue surrounding the diary and tiara Added to that was the humor that these two characters brought to the story and I was totally entranced and entertained by them Their witty and funny banter was effortless and comfortable the sexual chemistry was obvious and they really did bring out the best in each other I loved the development of their relationship seeing Catherine totally entrance Nick and how Nick supports Catherine in her independence and unconventional ways was so heartwarming He needed a strong woman like her to support him and he found that in Catherine I thought the supporting cast of characters added to the storyline and I particularly loved Nicks mother and how she saw Catherine for who she really was and how good she was for Nick The ending was perfect for me and I loved the epilogue I could happily read about this couple or other members of the ton copy kindly provided by the publisherauthor

    Historical romances are so much fun That proper and inflexible London society that makes it such a challenge for everyone to try and break the rules – without getting caught So much funSo when Catherine Malbeouf comes to town from the “New World” it is little wonder that society looks at her with their noses in the air Especially since they are all sure her father was a pirate and refused to believe otherwise Someone said so it must be true Even when Catherine does everything right as society dictatesOf course Nicholas Adair Duke of Boulstridge leads the pack in that misguided belief It is beside the point that he is living down ugly gossip about his own family He is a Duke He knows Pompous – um – well I think you get the idea But then considering the way they met Nick could have some grounds to believe Catherine is uncivilized After all she did climb in the window of his library and paw through his books wearing pants and a cutlass gasp under her dress She did feel justified though The place had belonged to her mother’s family once upon a time and a family heirloom was still being held hostage there Boy did the spark fly between these two in some form or another Thank goodness they fell in love before they killed each other This was such a fun rollicking romp Both Catherine and Nick learned much about themselves and each other The characters were fun and interesting with well developed back stories The story was nicely paced with plenty of action and excitement Things were mostly tied up nicely for a hea ending I liked how the story ended much how it began with a bedtime story SweetI was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
