Publisher's Summary

The first book in the new series Desperately Seeking Duke from USA Today best-selling and RITA award-winning author Caroline Linden.

It’s no love match....

Bianca Tate is horrified when her sister, Cathy, is obliged to accept an offer of marriage from Maximilian St. James, notorious rake. Defiantly, she helps Cathy elope with her true love and takes her sister’s place at the altar.

It’s not even the match that was made....

Perched on the lowest branch of his family tree, Max has relied on charm and cunning to survive. But an unexpected stroke of luck gives him an outside chance at a dukedom - and which Tate sister he weds hardly seems to matter.

But could it be the perfect match?

Married or not, Bianca is determined to protect her family’s prosperous ceramics business, even when Max shows an affinity for it - not to mention a dangerous ability to intrigue and tempt Bianca herself. And when Max realizes how beautiful and intelligent and desirable Bianca is, he’ll have to prove he’s no rogue, but the passionately devoted husband she craves....

This is a winner!

I am very picky about the plots, characters, and performances of the readers of the books that I choose - and Desperately Seeking Duke gets 5 stars for them all! I was hooked from the very beginning, and was not disappointed in the HEA ending. Also, the author created enough tension between the main characters to make the story interesting, but she did not leave you there to feel any frustration or anxiety- I've read so many books lately that make you want to give up on the book because it's just too much! You will not regret getting this book if you are a fan of a good love story. Enjoy.

Great Series Start

The characters in this story are different. They are both in, say it isn’t so Lizzy, TRADE! I really liked that our leading lady was strong, but at times, she was flat out rude to a man who really had not brought it on himself. Watching as they came to terms with the marriage they find themselves in made this a wonderful story with well developed characters fun of life and wit. There are some pretty steamy sex scenes once they finally consummate the marriage, but not overly raunchy. I’d give it an R rating. Definitely not a PG13. Ms.Crick does a very good job, as usual.

Hero and Heroine worth getting to know

There are many things I found enjoyable about this book. The first is that H/H were intelligent and likable. They were the perfect mix of a beauty and brains. I have to say that I liked Max the best. He was kind, patient and not the rogue he was thought to be. Bianca was stubborn and smart but occasionally her stubbornness got in the way of her really seeing Max for the gem he is. I am happy to say the author did not prolong her stubbornness to the end of the story. I also liked that Max and Bianca really got to know each other before declaring love. The story was interesting and sweet. There is not too much sex, an interesting mystery and it leaves one looking forward to the next story in hopes of hearing more about Max and Bianca. Is it worth a credit? It depends on your mood and tastes, but I believe it is.
