The Duke’s Holiday (The Regency Romp Trilogy)

The cold, precise Duke of Montford demands things his way: neatly ordered, in place, and adhering closely to the rules. So he is furious when he learns that the tenant of his ducal estate has been dead for a year, and a stranger has been running the Honeywell business―which, by contract, is now Montford’s. When he arrives in Yorkshire to investigate, he discovers that the estate is being run by an unruly, tomboyish woman―and a bluestocking at that!

Fiery redhead Astrid Honeywell is independent and educated. She’s been handling the Honeywell family business for years. And she’s not about to relinquish it to anyone―not even Montford―because of some archaic contract.

Montford and Astrid have an instant hatred for one another…and an undeniable, unspeakable attraction. They must resist this improper desire―after all, Montford has a fiancée in London. But when Astrid’s life is placed in terrible danger, Montford finds he may be willing to risk everything to save her.

  1. This Really Was a Wonderfully Funny Romp What a perfectly wonderful book! The last time I was this excited about a unique plot and witty dialogue was ‘The Duke’s Tattoo’ by Miranda Davis (which I heartily recommend). 

  2. 3.5 *s for The Duke’s Holiday It was really enjoyable to experience Montford’s “undoing” – his transformation from the most uptight person Yorkshire (or maybe even London) has ever encountered to someone who embraces life with all its uneven edges and burning wigs. 

  3. CHILDISH… Okay I guess I’m getting a little tired as well as bored with these kind of storylines. Where the heroine is irritating, childish, standoffish, and plays too many games with the hero. And then you have the hero going over and beyond trying to win the stubborn heroine even though she really isn’t worth it. On top of the H/H nonsense you have a storyline that has been repeated to death by other authors but actually pulled the story off better..the storyline being that the hero owns this damn…
