How to Dazzle a Duke, by Claudia Dain


This was a bodice-ripper, but it was handled differently than most. An arch, very humorous tone was maintained throughout, and the entire first section takes place in one continuous scene, which was very well done. It is not as steamy as most, but our prim and forthright heroine, Penelope Prestwick, is perfectly lovely in her determination to marry a duke. Her intention to marry a specific duke even though she has caught the attention of another one, makes for many comic interludes. For 18 and up.
