The Duke of Desire is Live!

The 9th Book in the bestselling 1797 Club series from USA Today Bestseller Jess Michaels

Robert Smithton, Duke of Roseford is known for his lusty appetites and his cold, cold heart. Still thanks to his title and his fortune, everyone wants him and he’s bored of it all. He wants something, but he cannot place what exactly that is. Until he meets Katherine, the Countess of Gainsworth.

Married for six months to an old man who died when they were making love, Katherine is just returning to Society. Although scandal follows her, so does interest, as the men of Society wonder about her prowess if it could kill a man. When Robert begins to pursue her, she is horrified. After all, she blames him for the circumstances that sent her into her loveless marriage in the first place. 

When Katherine ignores him, Robert only pushes harder and ultimately she begins to wonder if revenge is a dish best served through desire. What she finds when she touches him at last is pleasure unlike any she’s ever known, and a connection she does not wish to feel. Now she must decide if she wants revenge or happiness and Robert must determine if love is worth fighting for. 

Length: Full-length novel
Heat Level: Seduction, scandal and lots of sin!

This book is part of a series (The 1797 Club), but can be read as a standalone book.

I am absolutely astounded at the talent of this author, once again she has written an utterly brilliant story full of love, laughter, intrigue and sin. The two main characters have lives that have been filled with so much hurt and tragedy, both never living a fulfilling life because of the actions of others. Robert Duke of Roseford and Katherine Countess of Gainsworth are enemies to lovers in this story of seduction and scandal.
I was totally gripped by the back story that sets both Katherine and Robert down a path of destruction, that is until they get accidently pushed together and they get to know what lies deeper beneath the facade that they both have been forced to live behind. I absolutely love it when the hero of a story is a bad boy that gets tamed by the heroine and Robert is a libertine of the worst kind, but once we got to know more about him I just couldn't not love him and sympathise with him for all that he has suffered. Kathrin is a wonderful character, she is is a strong and passionate woman that even though she has lived a life repressed by her pious father she still has a kind and caring nature that is full of empathy for others. Together they were a great couple, and the flames of passion between them were fueled by Katherine's long time loathing of Robert that eventually you just knew that they would ignite!
A brilliant story that played out so deliciously well, this is another great addition to this series that I have loved reading so much.
5 Amazing Stars!
