The Unexpected Duchess (Playful Brides, #1)The Unexpected Duchess by Valerie Bowman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had some great zingers where Lady Lucy speaks her mind and then some, but, she has met her match in Lord Hunt. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Lady Lucy pretty much could have a lot of interest from the males of the ton, but, they pretty much cower from her whip-smart mouth. She is protective of her friends, especially Cassandra who never seems to stand up for herself.

Derek Hunt is trying to honor a promise he made to his friend during the war. Julian is Cassandra's childhood crush, despite his being almost engaged to her cousin. They have been close enough friends over the years that she has fallen in love with him. She wants to wait it out despite the circumstances. Derek wants to do his duty to his friend so he tries to court her. Cassandra does not want to be courted so she enlists her friend Lucy to try and help deter him. What results is a great story where Derek and Lucy do entertain with some great, witty repartee. It leads to a great romance and looks like a great start to a new series.
