The Duke’s Secret Cinderella by Eva Devon


The Duke’s Secret Cinderella is the third book in the Never A Wallflower series by Eva Devon.  Cinderella is not my favorite fairy tale to be retold; however, I found this romance was sparkling, fresh, and enchanting.  Rafe Dorchester, Duke of Rockford, has been given an ultimatum from his mother, and he has to wed…now!  Charlotte Browne has been reduced to a servant in her evil stepfather’s household.  One little lie starts Charlotte down a slippery, passionate slope with Rafe.  Rafe and Charlotte face seemingly insurmountable odds to find their happily ever after.

I liked the premise. However , I felt the lies between the couple took too long to be resolved.  I did love the truth that is revealed at the end.  The plot flowed well, and the pacing was good.  I related to and empathized with both Rafe and Charlotte.  The couple had a romantic, passionate relationship that lit up the page.  The antagonist was very effective; he was horrible to poor Charlotte!  Both Rafe and Charlotte shone brightly as characters.  Eva Devon does a wonderful job of creating characters I can fall in love with.  The Duke’s Secret Cinderella was entertaining and romantic; this is another excellent book from a fantastic storyteller!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
