Melissa's Review:

What a Difference a Duke Makes is book 1 in the School for Dukes series. I've been waiting for a new LBell book and grabbed this one as fast as I could get my hands on it. True to form, LBell writes a great romance and the leading lady this time around is inspired by Mary Poppins! This is going to be a must read for Historical Romance lovers.

Mari Perkins comes to London to work as a governess but after having her luggage stolen and her job assigned to another person, she's desperate for work. She overhears a governess talking about leaving her position due to two children that cannot be tamed. Mari heads to Edgar Rochester, the Duke of Banksford's house as fast as she can and winds up getting hired on a probationary basis. Edgar doesn't really know what to do with his children, he found out about them recently when his past lover passed away and the children wind up in his care. Mari works her magic and the kids quickly come to adore her, though they do like to cause trouble. They're not the only ones liking her though, Edgar can't get her out of his mind and though his first love is his work he's feeling more than he should about his governess.

What a Difference a Duke Makes is a delightful read you won't want to put down. I could see the Mary Poppins vibes coming through and thought it worked well with the story. The romance was good and there was even a bit of Mari trying to find out about her mysterious past that I enjoyed. I can't wait for the next book in the series, LBell is one of my favorite Historical Romance writers and I'm eager to see what she comes up with next. If you're a fan of Historical Romances you won't want to pass this one up.
