The one woman he will never forget…
Malcolm Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer’s end. There is only one problem—he already has one.
The one man she will never forgive…
After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal—to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal; Sera can have her freedom, just as soon as she finds her replacement…which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want, but somehow cannot resist.
A love that neither can deny…
The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day The Day of the Duchess.
Reviews on GoodReads
I have always thought that Sarah MacLean is a good writer and always like her books, but with ” The Day of the Duchess” she showed me she is a Great writer. When I first read that Serafina was getting her own book I thought that the author would obviously kill off the husband so she could get Sera her HEA so when I saw that the Duke was going to be the hero I thought impossible how do you make a Villain into a Hero because the Duke was awful and the worst kind of villainess , suffices to say I was extremely skeptical because I Hated him, the things he did to her and to her family where terrible so how do you forgive that? I ask you. My answer was you don’t.
This is when a good writer shows you she is a great writer because in my opinion she succeeded in making a despised character a Hero! I really did not think she could do it.
If you want something light to read these is not your book because it has so many emotions so much heart ache, but when you have faith in the writers that you like, you know they will get you to where you want to go and Sarah MacLean does it beautifully.
I will not tell you what the book is about because a lot of reviewers have already done it and much better that I would. I will tell you to give this book a chance and let yourself decide if Mal is Hero or Villain, I vote “Hero”. I do recommend that you read the first book before that way you can hate him before you love him. Be ready for all the emotions you will fill because this book brings the all out. © Lucy
