Review for Romancing the Duke

Romancing the Duke - Tessa Dare

Oh I loved this truly cheesy fairytale romance!!


Isolde ‘Izzy’ Goodnight has dreamed of a fairytale life most of her life but as she grows older and reality sets in she lets go of her fantasies one by one. Then one day she finds herself barely surviving after the death of her father only to receive a letter from her recently deceased godfather’s estate. Izzy is so excited and hoping it is 100 or maybe even 200 pounds, quick she finds out it is not and more importantly she gets a crumbling castle with a rather obstinate Duke who believes he is the owner of the castle. Now these two must decide who gets the castle.


Now I liked a great many things about this book beginning with our lovely heroine and hero. I loved the whimsical life of Izzy. I loved watching the Duke try to stay cold and isolated after a lifetime of feeling left on the outside. Is this story over the top, totally but it works it is funny and heartwarming. I planned to read a few chapters before I went about my day and found myself giggling and having a wonderful afternoon. The only downside to this book that kind of bummed me out is that while we called this a period piece it felt as though it could have happened today.
