WoW [292] - The Duke of Her Desire by Sophie Barnes

Author: Sophie Barnes
Series: Diamonds in the Rough #2
Release Date: December 26th, 2017

He was only supposed to keep an eye on his friend’s sister . . . now he’s about to lose his heart . . . 

When Thomas Heathmore, Duke of Coventry, agrees to steer his friend’s inexperienced younger sister through society, he doesn’t expect the lady in question to be so infernally stubborn. Amelia Matthews seems to have little interest in balls or suitors at all. Instead, she intends to open a school, and against his better instincts, Thomas offers to help. Yet somewhere along the line, Amelia ceases to be a simple responsibility... and becomes an undeniable temptation.

Since her brother inherited a dukedom, Amelia’s prospects have transformed. But though she’s long been secretly infatuated with Thomas, she refuses to heed the arrogant aristocrat’s advice. If only it were as easy to ignore his heated touch. And as Amelia soon learns, the ton is a minefield, where one moment’s indiscretion can unleash a scandal—or entice her to surrender everything to the duke of her desire...
Why I am waiting:
I've been on a Historical Romance kick lately and this one sounds pretty good. The whole trope with dating his friend's younger sister gets me too so yay!

What book are you waiting on this week?

  4. I love historical romance, but still need to try Sophia Barnes books. I like the dating the friend's sister element, too.

  5. We're on rather opposite kicks at the moment. I'm rather bored with historical and looking more for fantastical worlds. But it goes in waves, doesn't it?

  6. THis sounds like a fun read. Usually historical romances are forced marriages or something of the like. Can't say I've ever read one that was about best friend's little sister. :D
