Never Say Duke by Erica Ridley
This is hilariously funny, heartbreaking, sweet and romantic. Theodore is gruff, sarcastic, charming and sweet. Virginia is bold, determined, caring, generous and vulnerable. Theodore was seriously injured during a battle and sent home, but he didn't want to go to London until he was healed, so his friend, the Duke of Azureford, let him stay at his house in Christmas. Virginia lives in Christmas because her parents left her in a madhouse and she escaped, when she got to Christmas she decided to stay because everyone accepted her. One day while walking her cat, Duke, the cat jumped into an open window at the Duke's home. So Virginia went to get him and found Theodore, half bandaged, sitting in his wheeled chair. She immediately took charge of him, which he didn't appreciate, and went to see him every day to help him build up his strength so that he could walk again. As they get to know each other, Theodore is incensed by the way her parents have treated her, so he takes it upon himself to build up her self-esteem, and falls in love. Their interactions are funny, sweet and entertaining. I cannot recommend this series enough, it's brilliant, every book is better than the last. They have intriguing storylines and brilliant and charming characters.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
