Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway for A Duke Like No Other by Valerie Bowman


A Duke Like No Other
Valerie Bowman

Summary:
First comes love, then comes marriage. Unless it’s the other way around. . .

General Mark Grimaldi has sacrificed everything for his military career, working his way through the ranks without the benefit of a nobleman’s title. Now, his years of dedication are about to pay off—with an offer for a prestigious promotion to Home Secretary. There’s only one condition: Mark must be married. Aside from the small matter of not actually wanting to be wed, Mark faces another troubling problem: he already has a wife.

Nicole Huntington Grimaldi has spent ten contented years in France without her husband—and without regret. When Mark asks her to return to London and play the part of his beloved wife, she sees her chance. But neither of them is prepared for news that will throw Mark’s future into chaos…nor the undeniable desire they’ve rekindled. Maybe happily-ever-after can happen the second time around in A Duke Like No Other, the next Regency romance from Valerie Bowman.

Valerie Bowman’s Playful Brides novels are:

“Wholly satisfying.”—USA Today

“Smart and sensual…readers will be captivated.”—RT Book Reviews

"Smoldering.” —Booklist

REVIEW
*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for. 

After reading several other book genres lately I have to admit that I was in the mood for a good historical romance and this book so did not let me down. As book nine in the series I have gotten hooked on the group of men that we have met in the previous installments and I was very happy to see that Mark finally gets his chance at true love even if it does come with some challenges. As the man in charge he has had to make some very difficult decisions and he has paid the price for that as well. The results have been a ten year estrangement from his wife only now he needs her in order to be eligible for the promotion he wants. The deal they strike is just lighting waiting to strike and it was quite enjoyable to watch these two try to outmaneuver one another. If you are a fan of historical regency romance novels then you really have to try this book/series. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
