  • WhiskeyintheJar/Kyraryker
    3.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.With her two younger sisters getting married, Elizabeth is starting to feel familial pressure to give up her notion of spinsterhood. Julian may be a duke but the lofty title won't save him from penury. A houseparty may be the final downfall for them both. Third in the Windham Brides series, our oldest s...

    If you grow weary of reading about rakes and villains and the seamier sides of 19th century Great Britain, turn to a Grace Burrowes book for a change of pace. I suggest No Other Duke Will Do (ignore the silly title) for the story of two good and honorable people who find their way to a happy ending despite bumps in the road. They come from warm, loving families whose members appear as engaging secondary characters. There are no deep dark secrets....

    So, last time I read a GB, I threw all my toys out of the pram, stomped around and declared, “this will not do!” I wasn’t reading another one until someone else went there first and confirmed that GB got her groove back. Well, enter, Lady Wesley. Delicately approaching me in my ragey state and cautiously, oh so cautiously, suggesting that maybe this latest GB wasn’t so very bad and perhaps I should give her another try.I’m glad she did ...
  • Minx -The Genre Minx Book Reviews
    No Other Duke Will Do is the third book in the Windham Brides series and it was a charming story that was hilarious, witty, and had an unusual romance. Julian St. David was not interested in having a wife, he couldn’t even afford one if he wanted too. He was left with a legacy of debt resulting from one too many book purchases made by his predecessors and has been trying to keep his finances and responsibilities in check. His sister, Lady Gleny...

    There's no other answer: it must be me...I appreciate Ms. Burrowes ability with words and her writing, but the execution and content of the story is sadly lacking for me.I was bored and bored and bored with all the useless things happening in this book. Nothing important happened. All the characters were circling each other talking, walking and thinking about nothing important. I understant that the ton's ladies and gentlemen's life was like that...

    No Other Duke Will Do (Windham Brides) by Grace Burrowes  My favorite trait of author Grace Burrowes is that whether dabbling in suspense, bursting with atomic attraction or stepping into the throws of ecstasy, she never takes herself too seriously.  There is just enough of the fantasy to captivate and entertain.  No Other Duke Will Do spins a tale of friendship and seduction that starts with a relationship of convenience.  Elizabeth and ...

    This "Bride" book had some really nice moments, and overall, I did like all the characters. For me, what brought it down was the despair (that's how it felt for me) that the Duke had for his library. He acted like it was such an albatross around his neck. I just thought that was over-dramatic.**Thank you to the publisher and Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.**

    I liked Grace Burrowes books because they are sweet and the couples talk, a lot. I like that. These couple actually seem to get to know each other. I can believe them falling in love.Elizabeth is getting closer to spinsterhood, not that she cares. She loves her books and you can still steal a kiss or two without being married. Elizabeth! I am shocked.Julian may be a Duke, but he is poor as dirt. The only thing he has is books, so many books, so m...

    Actually, 4.5 stars rounded up to 5Series: Windham Brides #3Publication Date: 11/7/17Delightfully, refreshingly, deliciously different! I loved this book. Both lead characters are very nice, very loving, very honorable – just very, very good people. They don’t have any deep, dark secrets. Both are honest and up-front about their issues and don’t try to hide those from the other. They actually talk with each other and even more miraculously ...

    4.5 Stars as reviewed at Roses Are Blue: "Bethan" Windham has been out for ten seasons, and has not found a man she could love or esteem enough to want to marry. Since two of her sisters have recently wed, her parents and other relatives are even more anxious for her to find a suitable spouse and settle down. Elizabeth is just biding her time until she can safely be classified a spinster, and has no plans to marry...
