What a Devilish Duke Desires by Vicky Dreiling

What a Devilish Duke Desires by Vicky Dreiling

This is book 3 in the Sinful Scoundrels series.

Harry Norcliffe never wanted his uncles title. He was not raised among the peerage and is not your typical Duke. When he meets Lucy, he doesn't tell her that he is a Duke right away. She works among the ton, but has no idea who he really is. He enjoys spending time with her, because he knows she is not after something from him other than his friendship.

Lucy is just trying to make ends meet for her grandmother and herself. Her dream is to open her own dance studio to train you debutants how to dance.  Having been let go from her seamstress job, and working for a tyrannical dance instructor, Lucy welcomes the opportunity to branch out on her own. A chance meeting introduces her to Harry. 

Thinking him a well to do businessman, she befriends him needing someone to talk to during her troubling times.
What happens when Lucy finds out that not only is Harry a member of the peerage, but a Duke? Their two worlds soon collide and mischief ensues. Can their budding romance survive?

I really enjoyed Harry and Lucy's story. I've always enjoyed stories in which members of the peerage don't act like they are better than everyone else. Having not grown up with a title, Harry hates all the attention that comes with being a Duke. He desperately misses his uncle that he inherited the title from and feels like it shouldn't even be his. He is intrigued by Lucy for what she isn't, a young debutant looking to marry a title.

Lucy has been educated like a young society miss because her mother was from the peerage. But having married beneath her, her family disowned her. After Lucy's mother and then father passed away, she didn't have anyone to rely on but herself. Taking care of her blind grandmother became another job in of itself, although she never begrudged her for it. Meeting Harry took some of the load off of her mind, not because her life became easier, but because she had someone to talk to about it.

Another great read by Dreiling!! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
