For ten years, Lady Daisy Meadows has been in love with Auric, the Duke of Crawford. Ever since his gallant rescue years earlier, Daisy knew she was destined to be his Duchess. Unfortunately, Auric sees her as his best friend’s sister and nothing more. But perhaps, if she can manage to find the fabled heart of a duke pendant, she will win over the heart of her duke.

Auric, the Duke of Crawford enjoys Daisy’s company. The last thing he is interested in however, is pursuing a romance with a woman he’s known since she was in leading strings. This season, Daisy is turning up in the oddest places and he cannot help but notice that she is no longer a girl. But Auric wouldn’t do something as foolhardy as to fall in love with Daisy. He couldn’t. Not with the guilt he carries over his past sins… Not when he has no right to her heart…But perhaps, just perhaps, she can forgive the past and trust that he’d forever cherish her heart—but will she let him?

About Christi Caldwell…

Christi Caldwell

USA TODAY Bestselling author CHRISTI CALDWELL blames Judith McNaught’s “Whitney, My Love!” for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and pick up her laptop to try her hand at romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections, and she rather enjoys torturing them before crafting them a well deserved happily ever after!

Christi makes her home in southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing her own enchanting historical romances, chasing around her feisty six-year-old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!

#4 in the highly anticipated “The Heart Of A Duke” series. Can be read as a stand alone, however, I would suggest reading the others in this series, just because it is sn awesome series, and the reader will find re-occurring characters throughout the series. “Loved by a Duke” is a quick, charming Regency Historical Romance. This is Auric snd Daisy’s story, a very complicated, sweet story, that is filled with guilt, grief, sensual tension, healing, and, yes, forgiveness and romance. Finding true love in a most unexpected place, between the heart of a tortured Duke and a romantic young Lady. Emotional,compelling and very satisfying! Once again Ms. Caldwell has written a story that fans can and will hold dear to their hearts. A quick read to me, that was at times was sad, witty, sensual and seemed personal, other times, I wanted to jerk both, Daisy and Auric by their proverbial butts. A wide range of emotions converge into a suburbly written story! Another hit for Ms. Caldwell, she never disappoints her fans. Fans of Regency Historical Romance, well developed characters and anyone who enjoys a true Romance will, I believe enjoy “Loved by a Duke”, if only we all could be so lucky. Enjoyable and very satisfying!
