Ensnaring The Duke by Daphne Quinn


Ensnaring The Duke is the first book in the When The Wallflowers Were Wicked series by Daphne Quinn.  Lady Abigail Weston is a shy wallflower that goes to a house party with no intentions of finding a husband.  Oliver, the Duke of Worthing, is adamant that he will never marry.  Oliver and Abigail find passion and an emotional connection at the house party; could it change all their ideas on love and marriage?

Oliver is very stubborn and undecided.  I wanted to yell at him at times!  But my heart also ached for Oliver as well; Oliver’s feelings of inadequacy in being Duke shaped his views on marriage.  Abigail is looking for a match of convenience to assist her younger sister when she debuts.  I love the quiet strength of Abigail.

This was an enticing, emotional read about two people whose perspectives are blurred by the past.  This was a medium-paced plot that kept my attention throughout.  Both Oliver and Abigail were intense, raw characters who stole my heart.  This romance is a beautiful way to start a series, and I highly recommend it.

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