To Dare a Duke
"Dreams of true love and happy ever afters
Dreams of love are all well and good, but all Prunella Chuffington-Smythe wants is to publish her novel. Marriage at the price of her independence is something she will not consider. Having tasted success writing under a false name in The Lady’s Weekly Review, her alter ego is attaining notoriety and fame and Prue rather likes it.
A Duty that must be endured
Robert Adolphus, The Duke of Bedwin, is in no hurry to marry, he’s done it once and repeating that disaster is the last thing he desires. Yet, an heir is a necessary evil for a duke and one he cannot shirk. A dark reputation precedes him though, his first wife may have died young, but the scandals the beautiful, vivacious and spiteful creature supplied thetonhave not. A wife must be found. A wife who is neither beautiful or vivacious but sweet and dull, and certain to stay out of trouble.
Dared to do something drastic
The sudden interest of a certain dastardly duke is as bewildering as it is unwelcome. She’ll not throw her ambitions aside to marry a scoundrel just as her plans for self-sufficiency and freedom are coming to fruition. Surely showing the man she’s not actually the meek little wallflower he is looking for should be enough to put paid to his intentions? When Prue is dared by her friends to do something drastic, it seems the perfect opportunity to kill two birds.
However, Prue cannot help being intrigued by the rogue who has inspired so many of her romances. Ordinarily, he plays the part of handsome rake, set on destroying her plucky heroine. But is he really the villain of the piece this time, or could he be the hero?
Finding out will be dangerous, but it just might inspire her greatest story yet."
Alright, I am pretty much obsessed with this series. I could not stop reading it. The eleventh book in the series comes out July 3rd, I believe, and I am absolutely dying to get my hands on it.
Emma V. Leech kicks the series off strong with To Dare a Duke, and from the get go I was hooked. Usually I read the first book in a series and then I'm uninterested in continuing further. By the third book in the Girls Who Dare series, I stopped doing all those pesky tasks I'm supposed to do throughout the day and just kept reading. There were a couple of books where I wasn't really interested in the girl's story or the blurb didn't appeal to me much, but I am so thankful I read them anyway. One of those ended up being my favorite in the series thus far.
I cannot recommend these books enough.
