Miss Katherine Danvers has always been a wallflower. But now with her family on the brink of financial ruin, she finds herself a desperate wallflower. To save her family, she'll do anything. Luckily, she has the perfect plan...

She’ll impress the ton by simply announcing she is engaged to the reclusive and mysterious Duke of Thornton, Alexander Masters, and secure strong matches for her sisters. No one has heard from the duke in years. Surely he’ll never find out before her sisters’ weddings and she can go back to her own quiet life.

Soon, though, everything is out of control. At first, it’s just a few new ball gowns on the duke’s accounts. Then it’s interviews with reporters eager for gossip. Before she knows it, Katherine has transformed herself into Kitty Danvers, charming and clever belle of the ton—with everyone eager to meet her thankfully absent fiancé.

But when the enigmatic Alexander Masters suddenly arrives in the city, dashing and oh so angry, he demands retribution. Except not in the way Katherine expected…

This was a new to me author and I was in love with the cover and synopsis and beyond excited when my wish was granted by the publisher.

I love love loved Kitty and Alexander. They’re both smart, stubborn, good people in seemingly difficult situations. They’re so much alike, it was delightful read... ...more

This was the second beauty and the beast themed book I have read recently (not on purpose). I definitely found this to be the better of the two. This was a very sweet and sad book. The heroine, Kitty, pretends and engagement to a reclusive duke. Said duke, Alexander, is a recluse due to the scari... ...more

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My Darling Duke by Stacy Reid is quite the unusual historical romance. And you're probably thinking, "What's unusual about another beauty and the beast story with a scarred hero?" Plenty, actually.

Miss Kitty Danvers decides to mak... ...more

Oh my! With such a tormented, broken hero, it is no wonder I was completely captivated by every word in this book.

Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review
4.5 stars.
Full of tenderness and pain, often melodramatic, but Stacy Reid’s elegant prose makes the story in “My Darling Duke” (Entangled: Amara) heartbreaking and the reading journey very enjoyable. An amazing, very lonely, wounded her... ...more

By HeatherP December 05, 2019

This is my first book by this author, and I'm wondering why no one has pushed her in front of me before now. I couldn't get enough of this book, and her words.

There is so much emotion that leaps off of the pages. The story was consuming, and the characters were everything. I swooned hard, I fell... ...more

We're almost at the end of the year, and I was not expecting to add to my Favorite Books of 2019 list at this point. However, after reading this book, I was literally in tears.

By Ezza November 29, 2019

Stacy Reid is one of my utmost favorite historical romance writer for a reason and this book by far is the best I have read from her.

Basically, I loved everything about this book and could not find any flaw that comes to mind. The plot of the book is reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast and quite... ...more

By Nicole December 10, 2019

This novel was an enjoyable read. People are quick to judge and discriminate against those who are different, whether it be financially or beauty.

Alexander is often times stumped stupid by his woman, "he stumbled, dropping back onto the chaise longue, and stared up at her in aroused shock. “Miss Danvers… Katherine… I… I…” Sweet Christ, he had no notion of what he wanted to say." I really liked this book, I loved the witty banter between Al... ...more

In her acknowledgments, Stacy Reid states that reviews to authors are like a pot of gold to leprechauns. I want to add to her rainbow…I ADORED THIS BOOK!

My Darling Duke takes the familiar trope of the fake engagement and raises it a notch. Miss Katherine Danvers (Kitty) creates a fake engagement... ...more

By wonderfullyweird88 December 10, 2019

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite tropes in romance. I can't resist when I find a book that centres on this theme. This book takes that theme and creates a story all of its own. Our hero has many limitations not least of which is his inability for physical relations. Alex has given up o... ...more

By Corinne November 24, 2019

Original turn of the trope of a fake engagement agreed by two characters; here it is a one-sided! How daring! Kitty soon discovers her association with the duke brings in the hoped for invitations as well as perks in the form of discounts at the modiste, but her conscience prevents her from accep... ...more

By Laura November 30, 2019

My first thought was that this was like an overachiever in school coming up with creative ways to find more of a challenge in the classroom. Stacy Reid has come to perfect historical romances so why not challenge herself with a storyline that seems physically impossible to turn into a romance. I... ...more

By - Michelle December 08, 2019

One of my favourite HR reads of the year.

Kitty and Alexander’s story was like nothing I have read. I loved the slow burn feel of their relationship and the fact he wasn’t your average dashing hero. She had a backbone and he definitely needed her to bring some joy back to his life.

I also really e... ...more
