Determined to avoid the strife-filled marriage of his parents, Marcus, the Duke of Ulvercombe, wants an amenable, biddable wife, and has set his cap for a certain pretty miss. Unfortunately, her vastly opinionated, frustrating, and lamentably beautiful guardian, Lady Clara Tinniswood, keeps distracting him, tempting him to consider a far more tempestuous—and passionate—union.
Recently widowed Lady Clara Tinniswood wants only to organize a quiet new life for herself, beyond the control of any man. But one shockingly unguarded moment while confronted by Marcus’s gloriously naked body catapults her headlong into a forbidden passion and threatens to undermine all her well-laid plans.
Even if Marcus abandons his sweet ideal and surrenders to his growing desire for Clara, there’s one unalterable issue which could destroy their hopes forever…
Elizabeth Keysian felt destined to write historical romance due to her Cornish descent, and an ancestral connection to the Norse god Odin. Being an only child gave her plenty of time to read, create imaginary worlds, produce her own comics, and write sketches and a deplorably bad musical for an amateur dramatics group.
Three decades spent working in museums and archaeology fired Elizabeth’s urge to write, as did living on a Knights Templar estate, with a garage full of skeletons, a resident ghost and a moat teeming with newts.
Elizabeth lives near Bath in England with her partner and cats.
I loved everything about this book. Clara and Marcus keep me on the edge of my seat – laughing, swooning and believing that everyone has a soul mate out there just waiting to annoy them.
Their story is seriously entertaining. Clara’s family is in a bit of a financial pinch and Marcus needs a wife. So Clara and her brother work towards coupling up their ward, Ellie with him. On paper, she looks and seems like the perfect fit. It’s a win-win situation.
It all would have worked out perfectly if there wasn’t such a spark and connection between Clara and Marcus. It’s undeniable – even though they try and try. The more they fit their attraction, the more you want them to surrender to it.
It makes for an exciting and engaging reading experience. You love the characters and all the hijinks that they find themselves in while denying how they truly feel.
Overall, I thought Distracting the Duke was an excellent read and it’s one that highly recommend. Definitely check this one out.
