About the Book:


The daughter of an infamous art forger, Chloe Somerton grew up poor. Desperate to aid her sisters, she’d picked a pocket…or two. Now circumstances have changed, and Chloe has a chance to marry a young, wealthy lord. Only his mentor—a dark, dangerous duke—stands in her way. The duke knows about her past, and she’ll do anything to keep him from telling.

The moment Michael Keswick, the Duke of Cameron, sees Chloe Somerton, he recognizes her as a fraud. The stunning beauty with sapphire eyes and golden hair now appears to be a proper lady, but he knows better. What begins as a battle of wills soon escalates into a fierce attraction. In Chloe, Michael finds peace from the memories of war, but he refuses to marry…and she won’t settle for anything less.

My thoughts:

The Duke Meets His Match by Tina Gabrielle is a fantastic Historical read. #3 in “The Infamous Somertons”. It can be read as a stand alone. See, “An Artful Seduction” and “Real Earls Break the Rules”.

This is the story of Chloe Somerton, the impoverished daughter of an art forger, who has done a nefarious thing or two to survive her circumstances and Michael Keswick, the Duke of Cameron, a devishish handsome Duke, who knows Chloe’s past, and could ruin her future. Can a battle of wills turn into a forever kind of love? Pick up THE DUKE MEETS HIS MATCH to find out for yourself.

Ms.Gabrielle has written a story that is not only captivating but intriguing, as well as close to ones heart….returning veteran’s plight with all their scars both inside and out. She has managed to weave history with a beautiful love story. She combines returning veterans from Waterloo with the plight of the poor and impoverished to create a captivating tale of a battle of wills, finding love, healing unseen scars and wounded hearts to find a HEA, and so much more. I absolutely loved this fast paced, well written story, of a duke who met his match. Powerful and compelling!
I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own.

“Full of political intrigue, steamy romance and plenty of twists and turns…a well crafted story that kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. If Lynne Connolly isn’t on your auto-buy list, she should be.”~Sharon Cullen, author of Sebastian’s Lady Spy

Hoping to live down her family’s connections to the traitorous Jacobite cause, Imogen wants nothing more than a quiet life in the country. When she stumbles upon a wounded man, the white cockade in his coat tells her he’s a Jacobite, and a danger to the crown. Yet there’s something about him she can’t resist . . .

In search of a document on behalf of his powerful family, Tony is shot and left for dead. Secreted away to a hidden chamber, he finds himself both a guest and prisoner of a beautiful but mysterious woman. What she wants and who she serves, he cannot know. But what he does understand is the desire burning strongly between them. And that neither of them will be spared until their lust is sated.

When the action moves to London, suddenly it’s Tony who has to act to save Imogen. Forced to become a lady in waiting to Princess Amelia, she is in peril from the Jacobites, who are convinced she is their salvation. Only the strength of Tony and Imogen’s love can save them now.

Danger Wears White (The Emperors of London, #3)
DANGER WEARS WHITE by Lynne Connolly is a exciting Regency Historical Romance set in England. 4th in the “Emperors of London” series, but can be read as a stand alone.
Fast paced, and adventure filled with political intrigue, passion, romance, mystery and suspense.

I was thoroughly engrossed in the story. Read it in one setting.  I Loved everything about this story, from the H/H, to the action filled story, the secondary characters, to the passionate kisses, to the love scenes and of course, the storytelling was magnificent. A well written tale with engaging and realistic characters. The storyline  is compelling, powerful and engrossing. Another hit for Ms. Connolly! This is  a must read for fans of Regency Romance. Highly recommended!
