3.0 out of 5 starsSteam interrupts Story
Reviewed in the United States on February 6, 2019
To caveat my review, I confess I am not a fan of steamy romance. This was a great story, but just when it got meaty in the conversation, the couple jumped into bed for pretty explicit sex scenes. The story could have been developed in greater detail and had so many opportunities. I am a fan of Regency and Victorian novels; however, the language was inconsistent with the period portrayed, which threw me off in my reading.
A captivating, breathtaking, passionate story that will twist your heart while filling it with a wonderful second chance romance! Scarlett Scott has fast become one of my favorite authors, who fulfills everything I want out of a romance novel and beyond. This highly charged story presents Ara and Clayton, two intriguing, passionate and guarded people, who had know each other years ago and now come back together unexpectedly. Ara, the Duchess of Burghly, is assigned a bodyguard by the Crown since she was being threatened by a group of dangerous men who killed her husband. But no, it could not be! They sent Clayton, the first man she had ever loved. Each thinking the other betrayed them, the old emotions come forward with fireworks! I loved the dialogue and interaction between these two! Once I started reading I literally could not put it down! Stayed up into the early morning and could only sigh as I turned the last page. Suspense, humor, sizzle and an amazing array of characters you cannot help but adore makes this tale a keeper, leaving me anxiously awaiting the next book in the League of Dukes! Trust me, this is a must read!!
This book was like waiting for the a package that was never delivered. I've read many Scarlett Scott books and I can say that Clay and Aras romance was as painful for me as them. This she loves me I love her but I'm not good enough for her and she broke my heart really gets old.This book is so repetitive I really wanted it to just be over.
5.0 out of 5 starsNobody's Duke but Somebody's Love

From the first page Scarlett kept me glued to the sparks flying between Araminta and Clay. Here is a man without title and also a master's in love with a daughter of an Earl. You think like Romeo and Juliet, you're not alone but you're not right either. Parents intervened, two are separated and years pass with lies and hurt between them.Then a murder, a threat, and the lovers meet again.... Scarlett Scott has you so caught up that you just can't stop reading til the end and what an ending. This book is the first of new series and the first book that I have read by Scarlett, I love how inbetween chapters that she catches us up (the reader) of Clay and Ara's past and then blends in the present she's an outstanding author that I am now claiming as one of my favorite authors.Now on to her next book💕

A love story about destiny - Widowed Lady Ara, Duchess of Burghly and her 7 year old son, are assigned a bodyguard from the Crown after the assassination of her husband. He turns out to be Clayton Ludlow, the bastard son of the Duke of Carlisle, her first and only love 8 years ago. He abandoned her after she willingly gave her innocence and left her to her heartless family's decision - either marry or give up the baby. Fate brought her Freddie, Duke of Burghly along with a platonic marriage, until he was killed. Ara was the only woman Clay ever loved. Even in her cruel betrayal that left him with a brutal facial scar and a bitter, wounded heart he earned a reputation as the most feared Crown agent. His half brother puts him in charge of seeing to the safety of Ara and Edward - an assignment he longs to end so he can remove her and painful memories from his life. But the truth will be revealed to both in spite of their unwillingness to hear what truly happened to part them so heartlessly. For true love never dies - it survives the tragedies and afflictions and emerges stronger! Murder, mystery, snobbery, arrogance, political injustice all can be vanquished by trust, faith and love. Clay and Ara's story is uplifting and enchanting!!
4.0 out of 5 starsAra and Clay do the love hate tango very well

Just finished Nobody's Duke and loved every word. Ara and Duke love each other so much even their hate speach is hot. Torn apart by circumstances beyond their control they fight each other, for each other, and the ones they love. I gave it 4 stars because it was a little predictable but incredibly well written. Looking forward to the next installment of the Dukes.

Scarlett Scott is a new-to-me author but one i will certainly read again and again. Ara is a daughter of a Duke that falls in love with Clay. Unfortunately he’s a son of a Duke but born on the wrong side of the blanket and known as the “bastard” son. What is done to keep these two apart is unbelievably cruel and yet fate steps in to make sure they find each other again. I really liked this book.
This was an enthralling read. The story has flashbacks to eight years ago but this is smoothly done. I loved the initial connection between Ara ( Araminta) and Clay and even though they deny it, and eight years have passed, the connection is still there. I also enjoyed how their story slowly unfolded and it was revealed how Clay got his scar. Alongside this, is the real threat of the Fenians. This underlying threat is a constant thread throughout the story and provides the reconnection of Ara and Clay. Leo, Duke of Carlisle, also makes an appearance and I’m looking forward to his story.
I LOVED, LOVED this story. It is a captivating, breathtaking, steamy, passionate second chance story! We first meet Clay Ludlow in Her Deceptive Duke. When Clay is assigned to another case, it is to protect his first love. She’s the only woman Clay ever loved and the one he hates above all others. When Ara brutally betrayed and deceived him, leaving him with a scarred face and a bitter heart, he devoted himself to earning his reputation as one of the Crown’s most feared agents. Ara's husband is brutally slain and she has been targeted as the next victim. The League appoint Clayton as her bodyguard and protector. The hatred between the two ignite the pages with their barbs until Ara is endangered. As much as i love Ara and Clay's story, i enjoyed reading of the relationship Clay has with his brother Leo and his family. I had the book via Kindle Unlimited and loved it so much i bought it!
