Good Story, Short Novella
THE STORY: Anna Bishop is caught in a compromising position by the new Duke of Northamptonshire, Rufus Drake. In order to extricate her, Rufus demands a kiss as payment. When the two meet again, Rufus can’t seem to keep Anna from his thoughts and Anna knows that she is in danger from the handsome rake.
OPINION: I really liked the characters in this story. Anna and Rufus are really sweet together even as they argue and debate their way through their relationship. For such a short novella, I thought that both Anna and Rufus were clearly deliniated as characters. I liked them so much that I wish there was more to their story, however, I thought that this was a story that was told adequately in the length given.
WORTH MENTIONING: This book seems to be a prequel for the next book in the series as a mystery seems to be starting.
FINAL DECISION: This story is short but the couple is sweet and I liked their interactions.
CONNECTED BOOKS: RUFUS DRAKE: DUKE OF WICKEDNESS is book 4 of the Dangerous Dukes series. It can be read as a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
