Publisher's Summary

In this "exquisite gem from a master" of Regency Romance, one duke's plan to find a bride makes for a most entertaining house party (Library Journal).

Julian St. David, Duke of Haverford, is barely keeping his head above water in a sea of inherited debts. Though he has a long-term plan to restore the family finances, his sister has a much faster solution: host a house party for London's single young ladies and find Julian a wealthy bride.  

Elizabeth Windham has no interest in marriage, but a recent scandal has forced her hand. As much as she'd rather be reading Shakespeare than husband hunting, she has to admit she's impressed by Julian's protective instincts, broad shoulders, and, of course, his vast library. As the two spend more time together, their attraction is overwhelming, unexpected...and absolutely impossible. With meddling siblings, the threat of financial ruin, and gossips lurking behind every potted palm, will they find true love or true disaster?  

"Smart, sexy, and oh-so-romantic." (Mary Balogh)

Critic Reviews

"The Trouble with Dukes is captivating! It has everything I love in a book - a sexy Scotsman, a charming heroine, witty banter, plenty of humor, and lots of heart." (Jennifer Ashley, New York Times best-selling author of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie)

"Grace Burrowes writes from the heart - with warmth, humor, and a generous dash of sensuality, her stories are unputdownable! If you're not reading Grace Burrowes you're missing the very best in today's Regency Romance!" (Elizabeth Hoyt, New York Times best-selling author) 

"The hero of The Trouble with Dukes reminds me of Mary Balogh's charming men, and the heroine brings to mind Sarah MacLean's intelligent, fiery women... This is a wonderfully funny, moving romance, not to be missed!" (Eloisa James, New York Times best-selling author of My American Duchess

Too much sex. Not enough romance, character, and plot.

Very disappointed. I enjoyed the other two “Duke” books by Burrowes, but this plot was weak and seemed designed only to link the many sex scenes together. Will try another author now.

Story boredom!

Long drawn out, no passion, no drama, just bah... too bad because the idea of the plot sounded so promising.

A gently moving romance

What happens when a duke with crippling debts accrued by his bibilophile predecessors (and who thus isn't a book fan) meets the woman of his dreams - who adores books?

No Other Duke Will Do is fairly standard Grace Burrowes fare; two decent, honourable people meet and fall in love, but not without some lumps and bumps along the way. The lumps and bumps here are, it's true, not especially lumpy or bumpy, but it's an enjoyable, gently moving tale and the best of this series so far. Ms. Burrowes does a terrific job showing how Julian's financial situation impinges on pretty much every aspect of his life; he’s an honourable, compassionate man who wants very much to do what is best for those who depend on him and who is continually constrained by his lack of funds. He has worked tirelessly to bring his finances around, but knows he has a lot more hard work and sacrifice ahead of him; and we really feel for him as he realises he has finally found the woman for him but cannot afford to marry her.

There's an engaging cast of secondary characters (and several secondary romances!) and a hint of what's to come for the heroine's sister in the final book in the series.

James Langton is a narrator I enjoy listening to (even though his female voices can sometimes be a little off) - he really gets Ms. Burrowes' quirky writing style to the extent I can't imagine anyone else reading her books. Here, however, she's stymied him by setting the story in Wales and employing a number of Welsh characters, because while he's very good at Scottish and Irish accents, Welsh accents clearly aren't his forté. He's a very accomplished narrator and normally I'd be grading him at 4 stars, but I can't do that this time.

If you can get past the odd not-Welsh-accent, No Other Duke Will Do is worth a listen. It's a gentle love story featuring a pair of very attractive protagonists.

Enjoable

Well though out story, yes alot of angst, but they get there in the end. I enjoyed all the characters even the do called "naughty boy". I felt more desperated than naughty, so willing to thrown all the toys out of the pram.
