My Darling Duke by Stacy Reid

I loved this read. This was my first Historical Romance read in a while and I am over the moon that I got to dive into it.

This was a fantastic read. It was emotional and I was hooked. I loved these two falling in love and I loved the fact that it wasn't a perfectly smooth romance. Stacy gave us a twist you don't normally see in HR novels and I loved it. I loved watching the sacrifices that needed to be made and the fact that these characters had to make some tough choices to find their happiness. I was a twist that really hooked me. A rough ride that led o the ending I was rooting for. I fell for these characters and I loved getting to get lost in this for an entire hockey practice. DIdn't even realize how cold it was.

Synopsis:

Miss Katherine Danvers is a desperate wallflower. Her family is on the brink of financial ruin, and it is up her to save her mother and sisters from a life of indignities. So she transforms herself into the incomparable Kitty Danvers, the fiancée of the enigmatic and reclusive Alexander Masters, Duke of Thornton—once dubbed the mad, bad, and dangerous catch of the Season. Ten years ago, society and the woman Alexander Masters loved called him a monster, after a tragic accident left him scarred and confined to a wheelchair. His heart exists in cold, lonely exile, until he learns he has a fiancée—a deceptive, clever, and utterly intriguing woman he's never met. Miss Danvers will now learn the consequences of engaging herself to the beast, for Alexander is determined to make her his. Soon, they are involved in a chase, a clash of wills, and though he once vowed to never love again, he burns for the enchanting Miss Danvers. And denying his heart may cost him an exquisite love that happens only once in a lifetime.
