Book Marks: To Ruin the Duke by Debra Mullins

February 5, 2014

ruinthedukeOne of my favorite subgenres of romance is Regency romance. It's almost always funny in one way or another, and that's probably one of the reasons I love it so much. I was reading my friend Deb's blog this month – such a fun blog! – and won a book when my comment was randomly chosen one day.

To Ruin the Duke is a smart bit of fun reading. The heroine, Miranda, is loyal and determined and smart, which makes her eminently likable. The hero, the Duke, is a strong hero without being one of those guys who you're pretty sure you wouldn't like in the real world. (You know the type, order everyone around, assume they're always right. I don't like that type, and this Duke isn't that type. Yay!)

There's even a baby involved, which usually makes me yawn or gag, but the baby had just the right amount of scene time so that we didn't have to swim through melodrama. 🙂 The story was well-plotted, with characters doing unexpected things at just the right time. I have no idea if this is a series, but all the Duke's friends are single, so it might be.

If you like Regency romances with sparkle and wit, you'll like this book!
